I am booked for a fall cruise on Caribbean Princess and wonder if anyone has ever stayed in a mini-suite on the Emerald Deck aft??? Are these balconies partially covered or completely open. I sailed this before on the Dolphin deck mini-suite and the balcony was completely open. Any help would be great!!
I have no firsthand experience but found this on another cruise forum:
Emerald Deck: fully covered
Dolphin Deck: uncovered
Caribe Deck: partially covered. Also note that the balconies on these cabins are larger than other balcony cabins on other decks.
Baja Deck: fully covered
Aloha Deck: fully covered
Lido Deck: fully covered
If you look at a picture of the fantail of the ship, you can see that the Emerald Deck is covered by the overhang of the balcanies from the Dolphin deck. All the cabins on the aft portion of the ship are covered.
