We had cabin L227 on the Star and it was a regular balcony with the overhang. It was as private as the ones below, in the middle. You are closer to the bridge so I'm not too sure. We really enjoyed it because it was on the same deck as the pools and the Horizon Court but don't remember too much movement either. Enjoy!
