About to book cruise to Alaska -- aft balcony on Spirit (upper deck..5297). Last time I had an aft balcony going up Glacier Bay. Would like your feelings on aft balconies for alaska cruises (or any). Thanks. We didn't have a problem with soot, noise or anything. Thanks
Our only aft was on the Spirit. We were on the deck 4 next to a suite. The only problem we had since we were so close to the water was the wake noise. We couldn't sit on the balcony while cruise and read a book or have a conversation. If we ever try an aft again, it will be on a higer deck.
