Only closed in case of anticipated extreme weather when you wouldn't want to be on the balcony, anyway.

They aren't for everyone, however, many people don/t like looking down and having their view blocked by the promenade deck, and below that, the lifeboats.

They aren't that close and are very popular. Carnival often offers upgrades to people to switch from these least expensive balconies to something higher, noisier, smellier, and less private.
