normally the biggest difference will be location on the ship. BTW, I would do a 4 day, not a 3 day cruise. Just my opinion but I do not think 3 day cruises are anywhere near long enough to get a feel for the ship. By the time you unpack you are packing again..

The exception, if you live in the location of the ship and are just looking for a long weekend away for the hussle bussle.

thanks Nita,

I have noticed they are different places on the trip... do you like being all the way aft? or do you prefer starboard or port ???? if it isn't that much bigger I can go smaller but the price difference isn't great so I would like to get a nice big balcony if BA is that much bigger than BE... but does the aft end of the ship wind up being where you wanna spend time smoking a cig and having morning coffee?

thanks!

We always try for aft, whether we have an outside, a balcony or a mini suite. They are often a little larger and so peaceful..As for what side of the ship, that pretty much depends on the itinerary. Sometimes port is better, sometimes not. I usually don't really care, but some do.

tell me which cabin number and i will figure out the balcony size. most rooms have the same size balcony unless you go to suites and up.

I was just trying to figure out if there was a difference in size or ANYTHING in the BA cabin vs. BB, BC, BD or BE... figured there would be.. thanks for any help in deciding cabin....

Do you like being directly aft or do you prefer a balcony on the side of the ship.. do you have a preference for the 4 night cruise as far as port or starbird?

Thanks!
