I am considering a princess cruise and have heard that some of the balcony rooms don't offer that much privacy. I am just curious which decks have balcony state rooms with the most privacy. We have sailed RCI and carnival and never had a problem with privacy before. Thanks for the help.

The balconies on the Emerald deck offer the most privacy. We are booked in the last cabin on the Emerald so we won't have neighbors on one side. If you are on the Dolphin deck - completely open - you can look up to all the balconies above you and they can look down on everyone. The Caribe deck balconies are half covered and half open. If you are sitting under the covered area, the ppl on the Dodphin deck can look up but won't see you. I hope this helps. Enjoy!

I think that the balcony on the Caribe Deck is the best. Its nice and big and half is covered. You have the best of both worlds. I am planning my second Princess Cruise this year on the Ruby Princess and have already booked the Caribe Deck.
