Default Star Princess: Dolphin Deck or Caribbe Deck

Hello everyone. Do you think it is worth the extra money to get a mini-suite (Category AA) on the Dolphin Deck or stay with an outside cabin with balcony on the Caribbe Deck (Category BA). We will be in warm weather the whole time and we do like to use the balcony. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Default Caribe

I would go with the Caribe. Not only will you save some money, but the balony is larger than the ones on the Dolphin deck and is half covered and half open. The Dolphin deck balconies are totally uncovered to the sun and (heaven forbid) the rain.

Now if inside space was more important that would be a different matter.

Also, on the Dolphin deck, all balconies above you will be looking down at you. Lido balconies are my favorite as they are covered and highest on the ship so complete privacy.

Default Thanks

Thanks you two. I'll stick with my Category BA. Now, I'm trying to decide if I want to stay on Caribbe or move up to Lido.

The balconies on the Caribe are better because they are substantially larger than standard balcony cabins.

They are half covered, and only half open so you do have privacy, if you want it.

Stick with the Caribe balcony, if you aren't going to move up to a mini suite.

The mini suites on Dolphin are larger than the BAs, and have a sofa and sitting area.. where the BAs only have one tub chair.

But their balconies are open to above. We've had those minis, and the open to above thing never bothered us, but the lack of any shade on the balcony did, a bit.
