We had a balcony on the Navigator in May and now it's the only way to go. We absolutely loved it. Everyone who doesn't get a balcony says you're never in your room so don't waste the money, but we were in our room enough to thoroughly enjoy it and it wasn't a waste of money at all. We'd order room service when we got back from a port and sit on the balcony relaxing enjoying whatever we ordered, had breakfast out there in the morning and just watced the world go by. We felt it was definately worth it and like I said it's the only way to go for us now.
