We are going to book the 3/26/05 cruise on Diamond Princess to Mexican Riviera, but only balcony rooms are Caribe deck just few cabins from bow! Is it worth the gamble to book it as a balcony guarantee? I have done that on Celebrity, but they have much fewer classes of cabins and it was definitely worth it for an upgraded cabin.
Any advice on the best choice to get the best possible cabin? We don't mind gambling to posssibly get bumped up but dont want to get a lower cabin or one with totally exposed balcony!
If you should be upgraded to a mimisuite, you will have a totally exposed balcony. The Caribe deck isn't really that far forward. Our cabin has always been towards the front, and I wouldn't change it for the world! Just my opinion. :o)
