OK. Here's the scoop:
The last cat. 11 balcony on verandah deck on each side has a catwalk in front of it. Next to that at the same level (about eye level from the balcony from what I can see) is the front of the open rescue boat. Not much to worry about.
The middle ones i've heard are better, but the forward ones you can be seen from the observation deck above the bridge wings.
