Most cruisers raves about them. I have been told that they are the ones that sell out first.

If it is a true aft balcony cabin that faces the stern of the ship my suggestion is that you transfer the booking to me.

Enjoy: Aft balcony cabins are my favorite. I prefer the view and the noise is minimal. You may experience a bit of vibration when the thrusters are kicked in when going in and out of port during docking but otherwise they are the best cabins on the ship. They usually are usually a bit larger than other cabins of the same category and have larger baloneys.

Have a great time!!!

Take care,
Mike

I agree with Mike. Aft balconies are my favorite.

The aft balcony was the best room we have had on any ship.
We would have people in each night - the room steward will give you extra plates if you need them.
We would lock the door open and listen to the music come from the singer above.
The sushi bar is close by above you do you could get extra treats on a tray to bring back to the room.

A 10 plus room.
