Default Do balcony cabins connect?

I have cruised several times but have never gotten a balcony room. We are cruising on the Conquest in May and are going with a group of friends. We all reserved balcony cabins next to eachother. Do the balcony's connect from room to room? Some say yes, some say no. What's the truth? Anyone seen it for themselves? Does it depend on what ship you are sailing?

There are no "connecting" balconies on the Conquest Class. There are some insode and many outside that connect but no balcony cabins do so. In addition you can't really just open the partitions between them as it is a safety hazard and if you did it would block the door to the balcony on one of the cabins.

I've never been on the Conquest, but on the Victory we had 2 balcony cabins in a row in catagory 8b. The balcony partician DID open up, and we kept it open the entire week. having the partician open did NOT interfere with the door leading to the balcony or anything else. It was very nice to share a larger balcony with Grandma & Grandpa. I hope we can do this on the Mariner Of The Seas next April.

I did not see any saftey hazzards that would have been caused by our particians opening up. Like I stated this was not on a Conquest Class ship. It was on the Victory.

I'm afraid to book a cabin with a balcony. If I do, I know I'll never go back to a regular OV cabin, making my cruising on ships merely impossible because of the price. I booked an OV cabin last year, and I'll never go back to an inside cabin.

True... We booked a balcony on the pride, and are now booked in a balcony on the Glory. Its a lot easier to book a balcony on the larger ships bc something like 60-80% of all the rooms are outside, and of that like 60% are balconies. Although thats not the exact numbers, there is a huge number of balcony cabins. With that # of balconies, the cabin price for a balcony is a lot lower.. On the older ships, the only rooms w/ balconies were the suites... The newer the ship, the cheaper a balcony cabin is in comparision to an ocean view.
