Can anyone tell me how big the balconies are? Do they have seat 2 or 3 comfortably? We have sailed once b/f w/ not even a porthole so we are excited to have a balcony and wondered how big.

While the balconys offer the opportunity to enjoy the ocean air and sunshine, they are not spacious by any consideration. I am sure that you will enjoy it though.

Most of the balconies are about 3 to 4 feet deep and 10 foot wide. An aft cabin in most cases are larger than that. I measured an aft cabin balcony D-1 catagory on the Jewel of the Seas and it was 10'wide by 12' deep.

Hello. We sailed on the Enchantment in Dec, in a aft junior suite on deck 7, it was room 7172. The balcony had 2 chairs, 1 chaise lounge and a small table. The table was barely big enough to fit 2 plates and 2 drinks for breakfast, but it did all fit. I LOVED the aft balcony, although there are pros and cons in my opinion. Pro- I could stand up against the balcony and look straight up and see the sky, cause the balconies are staggered out from each other. Also we enjoyed the waves in the back of the boat. Con- People who where up against there balcony who are on the deck above you can look down on you. If you went away from the balcony, people can not see you. Our cabin was on aft deck 7, which I didn't realize was right below the "Spotlight lounge". Well, the was ok untill they started the band and Kareoke singing. It was soooo loud, I could actually hear a person singing "Sweet Caroline", and recognize other songs being played. So, I don't know if this would bother you, I did me, but I got over it. I would definately book an aft balcony again. Sorry this is long, just trying to help. Lil' Lori
