Hi Jan, it really depends on how much you use your balcony and how many people you need to put out there ! A mini-suite balcony is plenty big for two people reading and sunning and will easily seat four people for drinks and chatting.

I think (someone, confirm please?), that while the Caribe balcony is larger, it's only about a foot larger. We've sailed both, and the only advantage to the Caribe balcony is that it's half covered. We don't do anything on our balcony that we wouldn't do on the stage in the Showroom , so an uncovered balcony is not a problem for us.
