Sapphire Stateroom C753 or C748?
 
Hello,

Does anyone have pictures of either of these staterooms? Would anyone recommend these BB aft staterooms vs. midship BA ones? What are the advantages/disadvantages of both?:rolleyes:

Are C753 or C748 caribe deck rooms with a bigger balcony? I am not sure if the BA rooms are regular sized balconies or not. If they are, I would stick with the caribe deck. Also, I personally enjoy the aft rooms on Princess ships because the pool in the back of the ship seems to be the quietest and it is closer to the buffet room.

It's my understanding that Caribe deck balconies are "larger" than on other decks, also half covered and half not.;)

If the ship is a Grand class some of the aft balcony cabins have the beam right through the balcony the outside two as I recall....may be wrong about the ship type

We sailed in 753 last Feb. Hawaii return. Thought it was very nice, and enjoyed the curved railing on the balcony... adding a bit of space.

We love aft cabins.

We too love these cabins, if a ship has them without calling them a fancy name & charging a lot more we MUST have one, about our ONLY reason for booking early. Wouldn't fancy the beam though. I will have to look for a pic of P&O's Grand class ships to see if those outside ones have that curved rail, I think they are mostly suites in that position though.

I'm a big fan of aft-facing rooms, too. Six of my twelve cruises were in such cabins. My favorite was Celebrity Century, Cabin 1148. Most ships with aft-facing rooms have an even number of rooms across the ship. The Century has an odd number of rooms on this deck and I booked way in advance to get the exact center cabin!
