Default C752 view and balcony

We went ahead and booked the Golden Princess for May 9 from Vancouver to Seattle. When I called she gave us C752 (port side), one of the aft cabins. At first I was all excited but now I'm wondering how well you can see from the aft. Do you just see straight back or can you see out the side of the balcony also? Or is there just a wall on the side? Is the balcony larger? Thanks!

You can go on Princess.com select you ship and look at the different decks. You are on the Caribe deck and no you will not be able to look out the side forward. You have the "wake" view. Only wrap around balconies give you the capability to see the side and the wake while cruising. From the diagram the balcony looks to be the same size as the Caribe cabins on the side. The Caribe side cabins are half covered and half open but I am not sure about the aft cabins.

That is the best cabin on the ship.
Had that cabin on the Emerald in February.
Have that cabin booked for my next three cruises.
You won't be sorry.

You will be able to look off to the side and to the rear but not forward.

C752 is a " rear facing" cabin. This is very different from an "aft" cabin. Aft cabins are on the sides of the ship. Rear facing are literally on the "trunk" of the ship. The view is back over the wake of the ship. This is a prized cabin. We have the same one on the grand princess 20 day 3 continent cruise which sails this saturday. We couldn't believe we got this cabin. I dont think that you can see on the sides of the ship from the balcony. I think there is some sort of wall or column there that prevents it.
The high priced suites are also located across the rear facing tier. We have had side balcony cabins on the sun princess and the Crown Princess that were great but this rear facing balcony will be a special treat. You lucked out. Have a great cruise. Meet your neighbors and get invited in to see their rear facing mega suite. You'll save up your bucko's for the next cruise.

Consider yourself very fortunate that you were assigned this cabin. These are some of the most sought-after cabins in the fleet, and usually are requested and reserved early. Huge balcony, only one neighbor, lots of peace and quiet, and the sound of the wake will lull you to sleep at night. The only downsides would be a bit more ship movement if you're prone to seasickness (and that's just a maybe), and the long hike to the front of the ship. As long as you have no physical limitations, that won't be a problem either. Enjoy!
