Default Question About Rear Balcony Room

Hi. Just wondering if I can get some feedback about the pros and cons of a rear (aft) balcony room. Thanks.
Dave

I once had a corner aft. The balocny was gigantic....I felt no movement, and I would book one again in a minute. Your view is wonderful, and peaceful:)

Loved our aft on the Glory. Great view, and deeper balcony. We will try for the same cabin next time.
Enjoy

I've got one booked in Feb on the Miracle on the upper deck. I have wanted an end room since I started cruising. I hope it's all I imagined.

Our cabin number was 7447. The balcony was deeper than a normal balcony. Our friends were next door in 7449. The had the same size balcony. Our room was a little narrower than theirs because of the suite next door to us. I would recommend 7449. The aft is great. The only "con" would be, it is a long ways to the lounge which is at the front of the ship. After all that good food, we needed a long walk though
