These posts are making me long to be on the balcony of a cruise ship. I have that relaxed feeling just thinking about it.
Karen in 11 cruises Ihave done 2 balconies. I have 2 more cruises booked and both with balconies-so I do love balconies-but price comes into it.
I know I read a post once from a woman who said she would have nothing but a balcony and so she only cruises every other year-if I had to wait 2 years to do a cruise to have a balcony I would NOT.
I also read a post of this guy who went on an older ship and booked a suite so he could have a balcony and then GRIPED that he spent too much money on an old ship. He had spent $1500 a person when he could have booked an oceanview for $350 a person. I told him that should have told him something-because he would be eating in the same diningroom watching the same shows and swimming in the same pool as the guy who spent $250 for an inside cabin.
I may love balconies but I will cruise in other rooms. Last year I was able to cruise twice because I was willing to book an inside cabin and an obstructed oceanview.
this year and next year I will only cruise once but I will have a balcony cabin.
So my point is- do what you can afford to do and have a good time. and ofcourse at least once if you can- try a balcony-but if you can't afford that every cruise-you can still have a wonderful time.
