Default millennium verandas

Can someone clarify information I read about the verandas on the Millennium. Is the design such that passengers on upper levels can look down on the verandas of deck below? Seems like a deterrent from paying the extra for this feature.

Not really unless you're into nude sunbathing. Verandahs are great for breakfast overlooking the sea or a glass of wine before dinner and just a general sunbathe with a good book when you don't want to fight for a deck chair. Haven't been on Millenium yet, but have sailed lots of ships with non private verandahs. Actually they are private in that no one else gets to use them that week except you.

the only ones that are not private are the most expensive ones, "penthouse deck".
the rest are on top of each other and private.
we were in 7185 and the only lack of privacy was on either side when we stuck our head around and talked to the people on the other side. it was great. !

I was in an aft balcony cabin on the millie - our balcony was about 240 sq feet. 2/3rds of the balcony was private and the other 1/3 was open to air and to the balcony above. We had plenty of privacy and plenty of room to lay out in the sun if we so choose. This was my only balcony cabin so far out of 5 cruises and I am spoiled!

We were in a Cat. 2 C Penthouse deck and unless you peeked around the glass partition, no one from above could see on our balcony on the Millennium. The Princess Grand & Golden may be more tiered, but only stern cabins on the Millie would have a chance of others looking down from above.

The glass partitions appear to be striped frosted and clear glass in pictures I have seen. How private does the balcony actually feel?

I can only speak for my balcony on the Millie, but it was frosted glass - could not see through it.

Having just gotten home from the Millennium (and I do mean just, disembarked in Barcelona this morning) most of the balconies are private (with the exception of looking around the partition into the neighbors), Penthouse deck balconies have some that are not totally private.

The verandas are very private. You really can't see through the frosting at all. I could not tell whether there was anyone sitting there. When we were all leaning over the rail, you saw people next door and above and below which was great.

Cabin 7203 sounds wonderful. Were lounge chairs available on the verandah? Thanks.
