Not sure of the exact dimensions of these balconies, but they are totally covered. The balconies on Caribe deck, however, are half covered and are larger. Those on the Dolphin deck are mini-suites, and are totally open.

Hope this helps.

We were on Aloha deck on the Diamond... the balcony measured aprox. 6 x 10 feet... it had a table and 2 chairs... it was our first cruise and I will only sail with a balcony from now on. You'll enjoy it a lot....

I think the regular size balconies are about 4' x 10'.

We were on the Aloha Deck on the Star which is almost identical to the Caribbean. The balcony was big enough for a small round table and two chairs. We ate out there every possible time we could. It was partially covered from what I remember. You will LOVE it! Any balcony is a good balcony.

I just received my cruise travel magazine and the Caribbean Princess is the featured ship. They say the square footage of the balcony rooms is 233-285 and that measurement includes the balcony. So they seem like a good size. We had a balcony of the Golden and it was a nice size. On the Sun ( which we just came off) their balcony was smaller. You will enjoy a balcony, especially when you pull into port. Is it worth the extra money it all depends on what you like. We had a balcony 3 out of 7 cruises. We opted for ocean views the other times. I don't think I could do an inside but the people who had them always say "how long do you spend in a room?" but its your choice. By looking at the picture of the ship it seems that the balconies are covered. Hope I helped. Its a beautiful ship:-)

Thank you all for your replies. I am booked on the new Crown Princess for next year and it has the same cabin layout as the CP. We had a mini suite on the Golden, the balcony was a nice size, but was open to the sun and I have a problem with that.

Usually, Aloha and Baja balconies are covered. Caribe is a larger balcony and is usually only half covered. On the Coral Princess, the Caribe balcony is 9' X 9'. Dolphin balconies are often completely uncovered. I find that Caribe is the best of both worlds.

Great! So it sounds like we'll have some privacy then on Baja. Although I'd never step out without being fully clothed it'll be nice to hang out there without having everyone lookign down on us or up at us! I was worried and have thought of switching rooms! But I think i'll stick with Baja and try it out! Our friends have the room beside ours so we might try to have the door opened between the two balconies.

I'm so excited to try out my first cruise!

Hi Lisee: my husband and I had a balcony cabin on the Diamond (B404) and our friends booked the cabin next to ours (B408). We were able to have the privacy door separating our balconies open during the week so we could sit out on the balcony as a foursome and enjoy lunch, snacks, and just kick back if we wanted to. Baja balconies are covered, which were nice on days we had too much sun, but wanted to sit out and enjoy the weather and scenery. The balcony was large enough for a small table and two chairs - probably 6 x 10 ft. Enjoy your first cruise!
