Default Golden Princess - mini-suite Dolphin or Emerald Deck ?

We're looking into going on the Golden Princess in May and were wondering why the price difference between the mini-suites on Dolphin deck vs. Emerald Deck(higher price -lower floor). We stayed in a mini-suite on the Dolphin deck on Grand last March and the only thing we didn't like was that there was no privacy on the balcony since it was not covered.

The mini-suites on Dolphin Deck have a fully exposed balcony, they can be viewed from above (no privacy from above), however, the Emerald Deck mini-suites have the overhang from the Dolphin Deck balconies that gives them that privacy from above.

We had a mini suite last December on the Golden Princess on the emerald deck. Enjoyed it so much that we are booked on the Grand this December also on the Emerald Deck. These mini suites are more private than the ones on the Dolphin deck.
The mini suites on the emeral deck seem to all be at the aft of the ship. Didn't notice any noise from the lounge below our room.

If you get the farthest aft on Emerald deck such as E728 & 729, not only is your patio covered but also nearly twice as large because it wraps around the support structure for the disco.

This is not clear on most maps. We booked E728 on the Golden for Thanksgiving of '04.

Last April we had a similar cabin on the Dolphin deck on the Star (D732). The enlarged balcony was wonderful but we hated the people above us looking down, dropping their cigarette butts, etc. I'd go for the Emerald deck eventhough there is not quite as much sunshine with the overhang.

Hi Chuck. Hey. I noticed there also appears to be a doorway right near E728 and E729. Any problems with noise from people going through there? Also, did you find any noise coming from the Show Lounge below?

We are looking at Golden in October 04 and trying to decide on Dolphin or Emerald deck.

We will be on Dolphin deck sailing Jan 3, 2004. Gee, hope the people above us don't mind two crazy old women who wear the bare necessities for sunbathing. And since I like to sit on the verandah with just a skimpy, short nightie on, guess we will be the talk of the ship! Oh for any travelers with the same sailing date, we will be in Dolphin 223! Come and join us!!!
