Default Solid railing cabins

Got my room assignment on Wonder. Supposed to be the same category as the one I had last cruise. It is with one exception. The balcony staterooms aft have a solid wall instead of a railing. Since Disney's railings are a bit higher than usual, this means that unless you are standing next to it, you can't see a damn thing. From inside the room, all you get for your money is more light.

I can't say anything since I'm sailing on a promotion where the cat's kennel and parking is costing more than the cruise. However, it seems these staterooms shouldn't be in the same category as the other balcony cabins with actual railings that you can see though.

Disney does make a distinction between regular balcony cabins and "Navigator balconys". Instead of a railing high wall, those have a solid wall with a large hole. They are decorated as sort of a sun room. Since the glass wall of a balcony room lets in a lot of heat in the afternoon, my feeling is these room may have an advantage even though they are cheaper.

In any event, I think there should be an uprising from the masses insisting that Disney distinguish price wise between real balcony cabins and the ones aft with the solid wall.

Thanks for the info. I am traveling with my family in May on the Disney Wonder. We have a Deluxe Family Stateroom (cat. 4) on deck 8. Please let me know if these are the rooms with a real balcony or a solid wall.

We were upgraded to a deluxe family stateroom aft on deck eight. Depends on the room. I know the last three on each side have the wall, the next one I believe is half wall and half lexan, then they are the regular railings. Can't find my book but you can see what I mean by looking at a side view of the ship, counting the staterooms till you come to yours.

Our stateroom had the extra let down bed in the sitting room, rather than the bedroom as depicted in our brochure. Better arrangement.
