this is a pretty stupid question, but I wonder how private is a cabin's balcony? How worried should I be about being fully dressed before stepping out onto my balcony? In some pictures, the partitions just looked like frosted glass...
Acutally you really can't see through the partitions, its basically a frosty plastic. Just make sure no one from above can see down, they do have some like that on ships. What ship will you be on? You should be OK on your balcony, unless you have a next cabin neighbor that wants to actually look around the partition, but I wouldn't count on that :-)
We were on the Enchantment last September and I went out on the balcony in the morning with just my nitegown on. I never saw anyone but if someone wanted to look around the frosted glass they could. I never felt strange or that someone was looking at me. Have a great time. We have a 11 day Western Caribbean on Celebrity/Horizon in November. Sorry to say they do not have balconys on that ship.
