My brother-in-law just had an aft balcony on the Conquest this summer. The pros, he says are you do not have other people smoke, you have a great view of the wake, and a little more privacy. The cons? Well, you do not have as much air flow which is bad in the heat of the summer. Some say that there is more movement in the aft and forward cabins, but I have never had too many problems with it. The other upside is that you are below the Lido and can sneak up on a quich bite with ease.
I personally would love to have an aft balcony.

I think you have less privacy with an aft cabin becuase it goes at a slant. So the people above just can look down and see you. Also you can look into the other persons balcony next to you easier. The ones on the sides of the ship everyone is right over each other so if you look down all you see is water.

I have not had one yet, but know that many would kill for one.

We sailed on the Glory in Aug 2005 and had an aft cabin for our 7 day eastern cruise. I can't think of any negatives about this cabin location. I think that you will enjoy it and our cabin had a deeper balcony and it was very private.

We had an aft oceanview cabin and I would do it again in a heart beat. Didn't have much movement from what I was preparing for from all the comments I read.

We will have our first aft wrap around balcony suite on our next cruise...cannot wait to get there. Have already seen pictures of it and it looks awesome. Will be going into the witness protection program until we cruise....not gonna say when or what vessel we will be on....cause Luanne might send someone out to "snuff" us and get our cabin... (just kidding Luanne)

Is this about the time the theme from the Godfather is played?
