Default What level does the balcony begin?

We are booked right now on level one of the Conquest. I am debating about upgrading myself to a balcony. Can anyone tell me what level the balconys begin on the Conquest and do they think it is worth the extra money? We will also be upgrading our girls rooms (inside) also. Does the inside rooms differ from the lower level?

Thanks

Hi LIzzy,
I think if you check out this site, you should be able to tell. IMO, having a balcony is worth it, just makes the entire cruise more enjoyable, espcially that first cup of coffee in the AM out on your balcony. Have you asked your travel agent yet what the cost would be?? Sometimes closer to sailing its not that much more, hope it all works out and I'm sure either way you'll have a great family cruise.

I definitely agree that a balcony is well worth it! We used it so much more than we ever thought we would! Besides that morning cup of coffee, we enjoyed sitting out there after we came back from excursions as part of the getting ready for dinner routine. At one point, flying fish and dolphins sailed alongside us. It was very cool to be on the balcony when arriving and leaving ports. Also, we encountered a lot of rain 2 years ago...it was wonderful to sit on the balcony reading and watching the various weather phenomenons (water spout, tropical lightning at night).

we had an 8A balcony cabin on the Conquest. We heard all the partying going on below us. Check floorplans and see what is above and below you.

What level were you on? They are quoting us the Upper level by the Old Glory or the Studio or whatever that is.

On the Conquest we were on the Upper deck cabin 6363 right over the Promenade Bar. They had a live band on the Promenade everynight and one night a Mardi Gras party. Ever since then I've made sure we were in the middle of 2 decks of cabins. I would have never thought about looking at what was below my cabin until this cruise.

Do you know what the Old Glory or the Studio is? Right now our TA is looking into another location. The only one they had available yesterday was close to the elevator and next to the above Glory or Studio. It was number 6278.

Where do you see the flying fish and dolphins? (approximately) so I will know when to look for them? Did you see sharks? Now they give me the creeps. How about islands on the first two days?

According to other posters, the rooms by the elevators are not loud. They report hardly ever hearing anything more than what is expected in any other cabin. So that might be a satisfactory choice.

On our past cruise in march we saw about 4 dolphins at the front of the ship when we were heading in to dock in Costa Maya...they just jumped at the front out of the water and it was really neat.

In Cozumel while on the ferry coming back from Playa Del Carmen we saw a ton of flying fish too. It was really cool.

Our next cruise in January we're booked in a balcony and it will be our 1st ever balcony cabin. Hoping to see even more stuff while sitting on the balcony.

As for sharks, well they are in the water but I doubt they surface alot unless the water is shallow. We do hear of shark bites alot at our beach but it's more that they think you're something else, IE food source.

We saw the flying fish early in the morning on our at-sea days between San Juan and Aruba/Curacao. We saw the dolphins as we came into and left Curacao.
