Default AFT Balcony - Destiny - Opinions Needed

Booked an aft balcony (one located across the back of the ship) upper deck on Destiny. I read on another board that these balconies are NOT covered. Will I bake out there in the sun with no cover? I also read they tend to 'gather trash" for whatever reason. Anyone ever have one of these balconies? Should I try to switch cabins? Any info you can give me would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance for your help.

I just booked an aft balcony, too jeleja, but because I have heard SO many people talk on the boards about the wonderful cabins. So many folks said they were the best onboard, so I decided to give one a try.

I'm sailing in a couple of weeks and will let you know what I think. Meanwhile, I'm sure you'll hear from some cruisers who have already been in an aft.

jeleja,

My wife and I returned from our cruise on the Glory on Aug, 13th. We had aft cabin 6489 and we loved every minute of our stay. I'm not sure if the Destiny and the Glory are the same class of ships, but, from the Carnival Deck Plans they look the same. Our balcony wasn't covered nor did it get trashed, however, it did get a bit hot whenever the ship was docked mainly because we were in the AFT middle and didn't get much of a breeze. Once we got out to sea it was perfect on the balcony. If you would like to see where we were on the Glory go to the CRUISEMATES PHOTO GALLEY link above on the menu line ofthis page, or use the link below and look for the gallery named "Glory 8/6 -13/ 2005. Have a freat cruise.

Its a great place to be . It doesnt collect trash but there is little coverage from the sun.
Balconies across the back are deeper and better then either side of the ship.
Enjoy the sun. If you dont like the sun, book an inside cabin.

Thanks everyone! I do feel better now. I guess even if they put me in the broom closet, I would still have a great cruise. I am hooked.
