Hello Cruisemates: I'd appreciate cabin info from anyone who sailed in cabin 735 Emerald Deck on the Sapphire or Diamond Princess. We wonder how an aft location would be. Also, would the balcony be open or partially covered?
There are cabins above you and Club Fusion below you.
That cabin should be completely covered.

We traveled on the Diamond Princess in August of 2006 and loved it. There were fourteen of us in our group. One couple had a "fan tail" balcony cabin. The balcony is huge and the view is unbelievable. We did a "cabin crawl" party on the last full day with our group visiting each others cabins for cocktails and snacks. The aft cabin balcony was the only one that would hold all 14 of us.
As a note though, friends of ours just came back from a Mexico cruise on the Sapphire and were very disapointed with the service onboard. It seems that staff has been cut to save money.
