WE ARE BOOKED IN A SKY SUITE ON THE GALAXY JAN3004, CAN ANYONE TELL ME THE DIFFERENCE IN THE BALCONYS IT LOOKS LIKE SOME ARE SMALLER BECAUSE OF THE CUTOUTS, THANKS CAROL ( PS : WE ARE IN CABIN NO. 1236 )
Hi! Were are also booked for Galaxy on 1/23 and are also on the Penthouse Deck. What room are you in? Did you sign up for the Cruise Critic get acquainted party yet? Hope so. Great way to meet others. We need 25 people for the party to take place so got to the Cruise Critic website and register for the galaxy 1/23 party. Hope to hear from you.
We are booked on 1/9/04 Galaxy 1236. From everything I've read the location, noise, and balacony size are good. They say this suite (and only a few others) have the largest balcony of any cabins on the ship. It's 179 sq. ft. and 1/3 covered. The uncovered is open to the deck above, but I've read that there isn't very much traffic on that deck, so it's no big deal. I'm looking forward to eating breakfast out there every morning!
I was in a balcony without the cutoff (slightly larger), my sister was in the one next store with the cutoff. I think if I had to pick one it would be with the cutoff - the view is better, instead of seeing straight out, you also have an angle, and you will not miss the extra few feet - unless you plan to entertain dozens! In that case let me know - I'm on the cruise. Either cabin is fantastic - I wish I was in one. This is my fourth Galaxy cruise - it will be great.
