Default aft balcony

I originally booked an aft balcony cabin (5297) for my upcoming cruise on the Legend. After much consideration, I decided against it.....and upgraded at my own charge to an aft corner wraparound suite! I am getting married so I figured what the hay.

In my opinion, wraparound balconies are the best cabins on the ship. You get the best views and the greatest amount of balcony space. Sometimes it can be wasted space but it is sure a nice indulgence if you can afford it or if you wish to entertain.

Have fun and enjoy the view and the balcony!!!

Take care,
Mike

I booked the aft balcony on the Legend, leaving Port Everglades on 11/16/06 and I'm told that it is the best view by far!

Your wrap around will have a similar view, I'm sure. I think considering it's your honeymoon cruise, it will be worth it.

I paid only $720 for my aft Oceanview Stateroom with Extended Private Verandah (category 8I), and was curious as to how much your wrap-around room cost. Are you taking the same cruise out of Port Everglades? The one to Costa Rica, etc.

It's $720/pp + taxes and port charges -- the single supplement was a killer So I opted to get a roomie.

Yes Luanne. I refer to this cruise as the final voyage! I think it is appropriate for me that I get married on a cruise ship.
