Cricket: You're correct. The highest deck is Aloha, then, Baja, then Caribe, etc. Aloha and Baja are covered. We had cabin B404 (Baja deck) and could see into the balconies below. Some were partially covered. I was worried that we'd have complete shade while sitting out on our balcony, but not to worry, we had plenty of sun. We were able to hear the band playing on the pool deck when sitting on the balcony, but not when in the cabin. Cabins had good sound proofing. Sun, warm weather, cool drink, music....ahhhhhh.....life is good. Enjoy your cruise.
