Yes, if your cabin curtains are open. See my review of the Miracle below.
Returning to Tampa Bay
Much to my surprise, even though it is still dark outside there are a few people on the Lido Deck watching as the Harbor Pilot maneuvers the ship into the port. A fellow said to me, “This is when I like Tampa the best.” He parked the ship at the cruise port like I would drive into a parking spot at the mall. I must say I am impressed. I can tell by the aroma drifting though the air that the crew is already busy at work preparing breakfast for passengers. I can smell bacon cooking. Once breakfast is served, my family will have breakfast and then make sure we have all of our luggage prepared for disembarkation. Crew members have been busy preparing for breakfast while most passengers were fast asleep in their cabins.
Close The Curtains While Getting Dressed
I have leaned over to put on my shoes and glanced towards the balcony. Guess what? There is a man on my balcony. He is only doing his job cleaning the balcony. I am glad that I dressed in the bathroom. This is a lesson to me to close my curtains. I thought to myself, “Where did he come from?” I walked to the balcony door and looked out. He has all the side panels open as far as I can see cleaning the balconies. He is already preparing for the next group of passengers that will embark on a cruise today after we disembark. The thought occurred to me, “Thank goodness I was dressed while standing out on my balcony before the sun came up.” I have no idea how the man got on the balcony. This just goes to show that you never know when the crew might be watching. I am real particular about what I do while on my balcony.
You can not see into your room. I was on the Dolphin Deck and loved it! If someone is "hanging" off the balcony above you, then, yes, I presume they would see in your room. The Dolphin Deck mini-suites have a larger cabin. We had a queen size sleeper couch, chairs, TV, table in this "extra" room, that the mini-suites above us did not have. I vote for the Dolphin Deck!
I will be on the Dolphin Deck for my Golden Princess British Isles cruise next month, and was wondering what it was like. How far is it from the gym facilities? I haven't seen a layout of the ship yet, though I'm sure they're available at Princess.com (haven't searched yet).
Kukimoose, that photo on your profile is absolutely breathtaking. Was that taken with a digital camera?
mini-suites on the Dolphin deck are the best! love the extra floor, storage, living and bathroom space. Its nice to have a tub in your bathroom with a retractable closeline.
The balconies are tiered, like a football stadium. On the dolphin deck you have to stand at the rail, turn around and look up to see your neighbors above you.
