This weill be the first time we booked two connecting rooms on RCCI.
I was wondering if anyone knows if they connect by the balcony or by the room like a hotel room? I asked the RCCI people but they where quessing.
I'm only "guessing" here, too, but I can tell you that, according to the deck plan map, the cabin we have booked on the Vision connects to another cabin, and it is an oceanview, not a balcony, cabin. So I would think logically they would all connect through the room, not the balcony.
We have had the Promenade rooms on Adventure and they connect just like hotel rooms. As a matter of fact I like this arrangement better than a suite because it gives you 2 bathrooms and when the door is open you don't feel so cramped. You also get 2 TVs, etc. I have booked a future cruise with adjoining balcony rooms so I know it can be done with either. You may need to book early as the rooms seem to get booked faster than others.
Connecting rooms do indeed have an interior connecting room, ....whcih is precisely why they are sold as connecting.
Should you have BALCONY connecting staterooms, balconies also have a divider partition , half of which ( closest to your doors ) which can be opened.

We had a connecting balcony cabin on Enchantment, and booked one for our upcoming cruise on Brilliance. We booked while on board the year before, and they do fill up fast. The door is inside. As for the balcony-I believe all ships balcony doors can be opened, but it has to be done by the staff. Goodluck getting them to open them too. We asked our cabin attendant several times, and finally got a reply of the manager or pursurer is the only one who can do that. We we asked again, we never got a reply and by then it was the end of the cruise.
