You should have an excellent cabin. I have done two side balconies (RCCL Enchantment and CCL Legend). I was happy. Then....I did NCL Sun aft balcony. You will be hooked! My next is HAL aft. I am taking NCL Jewel in January and decided a bow balcony just to see if I like it and also, the balconies are much larger on the bow than what was left to choose from. Don't worry, you will love the aft.
