Had a Dolphin deck balcony on the Grand in Sept/02 and did not enjoy it much due to it being open to everyone above. Learned that lesson! We kept find junk on the balcony, cigarette butts and even a penny! We're book on the Sept 4/04 sailing of the Caribbean Princess and have a balcony room aft on the Baja deck., completely covered and private. Wil be interesting to see size of balcony.
