Hi everyone, me and my fiance' have reserved a Junior Suite, JS, on the Enchantment of the Seas for May of next year for our honeymoon. I've been reading alot of posts with people saying they were totaly happy with inside or outside staterooms with no balcony. I know it costs like $300 more but I feel like the JS's big balcony will add alot to the enjoyment of the cruise. I just would like some opinions and info. thanks

Did you are anyone else spend much time in your room? Did you enjoy sitting on your own balcony verus the other sitting areas around the ship?

Shane,
Since this is your honeymoon - I would not hesitate booking the JS. You will welcome the opportunities to be alone on the balcony. You can have room service breakfasts served on the balcony in the morning, enjoy a pre-dinner cocktail and watch the sunset or have a nightcap and admire the night sky. It is total bliss and will add an element to your honeymoon that would just not be available otherwise. While you may not spend a lot of time out there - the time you do spend will be well worth the extra $300. The stateroom itself, is just a bit larger making your honeymoon accomodations just that much more special. Trust me, your fiancee will be quite happy with your decision!
Nancy

I agree. Our first cruise we had a window and the second we had an interior and I thought the interior was just as nice. No sense wasting money on a room we only slept in.

Then a few cruises later, along came a sale on the balcony cabins on Explorer of the Seas and oh my! I was thrilled with the balcony. I'd go out there and read, then just stare at the ocean and the sky. At night I was so moved by the vastness of the ocean, the huge blackness with stars overhead. It was a thrill just to stand at the railing. I was spoiled forever.

On our last cruise we were with family and the women lived on my balcony. It was so nice to have a private place to talk.

Interior rooms are great. Windows are nice. A balcony is heaven.

Marian, I loved your description of the difference in the 3 categories of staterooms!! A very apt description.

Shane - This is your honeymoon - go for it! Remember, it is not the quantity of time you spend in your stateroom that will make the difference, but the quality of the time you do spend there. If it is at all within your budget, a balcony is a "must do" on your honeymoon - at least in my opinion.
