Hi,
I never actually booked an aft balcony but I got to go into my friends suite, which was on the corner of the back of the ship with an aft balcony that was about 100sq ft. It was really nice, I went there a lot on sailaways. We even ate out there cause it had a table lol. Its a totally different perspective than being on a side balcony, first of all you get a good 180 degree view of everything around the ship vs. just whats on one side of it. Some of the disadvantages would be possible engine noise/ vibration, and you may feel the effects of the waves a little more since you will be in the back. But overall, I think its well worth it and you should be lucky! You'll have a great view
