OH NO! More competition ;>) but great cabin location. I can't compare since my expertise is with only with Radiance class aft cabins (leave Sun on back-to-back where I couldn't even get the same cabin for both legs of the trip). The depth of the balcony is the extra value and we had a best kept secret cabin on the "Jewel" ( I think it was 9652, it's corner location makes it wider but not quite as deep as the centered cabins). We just had 8172 on the "Radiance" and loved that it was between 2 passengers decks so no noise to speak of from above or below. One huge difference is the lack of a passenger stairwell in the aft section of all the Radiance class ships so bring your walking shoes. I look at it as a PLUS to offset some calorie damage but this upcoming trip is with my 76 yr old Mother so we'll see how she does!
Have a great trip, Robbie
