Default Grand balconies

i have just booked a balcony room on the Grand for 12/2005. We are on the Baja deck - B428... Does anyone know about this room? I see it is close to the elevators, so is it noisy? Is the balcony private?

Just back and the elevator areas were never noisy. We had an inside close to them on the Caribe deck, so I can't comment as to the balcony. Hopefully, someone else will.

We were on the Grand and were in Aloha 429, that's a balcony about as close to the "Panoramic Lifts" as you can get. We were one deck higher and on the opposite side of the ship, but almost the same situation as your cabin.

The cabin was not in the slightest bit noisy. Every once in a while you'd hear someone being a little louder than any one else, but it was infrequent. It was really a rather convenient location for getting down or up to the common decks.

That being said, there are some variables. We sailed in late January from Ft. Lauderdale. You're in December from Galveston. If you are sailing over a school break period, more kids on board could make for a bit different situation.

As to the private balcony..... ours was definitely private. I believe the Baja's below us were private also. If I remember correctly, it was the Caribe decks that stuck out farther and we could see down on them.
