Two years ago I had my first balcony experiance on Mariner of the Seas (in my younger years I would do inside quads to save money!) Now I am completely hooked on this wonderful ''private oasis'' and am looking forward to sipping champagne as we sail away on Freedom of the Seas this Oct.
The only downside is the smoking issue. You aren't allowed to smoke in your rooms but you can on your balcony. My friend and I aren't smokers but our next door neighbors were and it could get a little heavy at times. I am still soooo excited about my even larger balcony on Freedom that I will hope for the best.
