Default Lounge chairs on Balconies?

Are there regular chairs or lounge chairs on balconies? If there are
regular - can you request lounge chairs from your steward? Will they give them to you if you ask?
This is our first balcony and we are looking forward to it.

Each balcony has two chairs. The suites are supposed to have a chair and a lounge chair, but our balcony, and all others on the Conquest had two chairs only. Our room steward found us a third chair for us because if all of us were on the balcony one of us would be standing up....

I didn't see any lounge chairs on any balcony. You can try to see if your room steward can find one, but be prepared if they can't!

The only time I've seen lounge chairs on a balcony is at the very aft of the ship with the corner cabins.

There is no room for a lounge chair on a regular sized balcony... just two chairs and tiny table inbetween seems to be the norm

The balconies I've had only had 2 chairs. Even the Penthouse suite only had 2 chairs and a little table. And the person who posted that there would not be room is right the balcony is not very wide. But now what I enjoyed was when a group of us had cabins 4 in a row. We had our steward open the divider between the balconies for us. We went between evach other cabins and we were able to sit out on the balcony together. That was so fun.

Thanks everyone, we've been enlightened. Oh well, I guess you can't have everything.

Cruised on the Conquest last December, had cabin 7451 which is an aft cabin, I asked our cabin steward for a lounge chair and within 1 hour I was laying out on the balcony with a good drink and the sun on my face.
With plwnty of room to spare for a small table and the 2 standard chairs that are all ready there.

We have had chaise lounges on balconies - I even have pictures of my wife sleeping on one of them in the sun.
