Default Looking For Pictures Of The Sensation New Aft Balconies

We are doing a B 2 B on the Ecstasy next Feb. I am considering booking one of the new aft balconies that will be available after the remodel. I have been unable to see any pics of the new balcony cabins. The Sensation has the same changes that will be made to the Ecstasy, and thought there might be someone out there who has been in one of these cabins. Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
Gary I.

Hello,

I found a picture of the exterior that shows off the new balcony cabins.

I also did a search and found this link that might be helpful.

I didn't find any interior shots yet, but I hope this helps. We cruise in November so if you have any questions just let me us know.

Those do help. I would appreciate any other info you can find. Try and get some pics when you are on her in Nov. We really like the Ecstasy and hope the upgrades are a big improvement. Again thanks for the info., and have a great cruise.

We sailed the Sensation in an aft balcony and loved it. I don't take alot of pictures but if you have a chance try it. The balconies are very spacious and private. We were in cabin #U243. The cabins are the normal size but balconies are double the size of the port and starboard and even the Verandah deck suites. We would do it again next time we sail her. We had no loud sounds but just a little vibration we we came into and out of port from engines.

Thanks for the info. That is the exact cabin we were looking at on the Ecstasy. It looks as though the balconies would be bigger. We had an aft on the Glory in 07, and loved it.

Again Thanks for the info.

I wonder why they did not put the balconys all the way up and down the ship. It looks kind of wierd at first but a pretty clever idea. I know Ill try one if ever sailing on of these Fantasy class.
