BB category on the Star Princess - there is no couch. Balcony cabins have a small chair. Mini-suite on the Star will have a couch in a little sitting area. Look on the Princess website and they usually have a picture of the cabins. Some cabins have a little larger balcony than others and that depends upon where the cabins are on the ship. Caribe deck has a larger balcony than Baja. But then the Caribe balcony can be looked down on from the Baja because it does stick out farther. Aloha is up higher and has shade from the deck above.... good choice if you are in a hot climate.
