Default Has anyone ever stayed in a FORWARD facing cabin on an Alask

We currently have a mini-suite AFT....I chose this because of the wind factor feeling it would be more sheltered. Now we have a chance to upgrade to a penthouse (not much different than our mini-suite but a little larger and includes a butler) but it is FORWARD facing. I'm concerned that due to the wind and cool temps that we wouldn't really get much use of our balcony. Any experience and opinions here are appreciated. Thanks!

Default Re: Has anyone ever stayed in a FORWARD facing cabin on an A

For myself, in Alaska, I would never have aft viewing. I want scenery and marine wildlife coming toward me and full views. But I also spend all my sailing time out on a front open deck, dressed appropriately, few other passengers do this. I would say with a balcony- you have the added comfort of going back inside and have your "heated" room for continued viewing. The front would be my priorty.
