Default Dawn Princess Verandas

My wife and I wanted to receive input from experienced Dawn Princess cruisers about the configuration of the verandas. We've been on two Royal Caribbean ships (Grandeur and Voyager of the Seas) and felt both verandas were quite private. You had to go out of your way to see the cabin next to you by stepping completely to the railing. Not that we're antisocial as we've had many a nice conversation with our cabin mates next door, but we also appreciate the solitude and privacy available on these verandas.

I'm hearing that is not the case with the Dawn Princess. I've had it explained that it is more like a shared balcony between two rooms with simply a dividing rail extending from the ship to the outer side of the balcony.

We're a little concerned about this as we have signed up for a 10 day Caribbean cruise in December and don't want to feel short changed on the balcony set-up. Any opinions out there?

Thanks for the help!

Balconies on Dawn Princess are smaller and more private than balconies on RCI. The divider is very solid, and there is a small frame of metal (about 6-8 inches) from each side of your balcony. We had to go to the railing to see our neighbors, but on RCI we could go to the railing and actually peek around the divider to see into the next room (our friends were in the next room, we were not peeping toms!!!). You can't get your head around the opening of the balconies on Dawn because of the metal framing. The balconies on RCI have plexiglass from the railing down, so you have a nice view of the sea. The balconies on the Dawn had some opening right under the railing, but from about 18 inches down from the railing to the floor was steel - not plexiglass, so your view of the ocean is not as good. However, a balcony is great on a cruise, even if the view is different from each one. Have a great time!
