I had to smile when I saw your question since I was just in cabin #7608 (other side of the bump) so yes people can see onto your balcony (and you can see onto all the balconies to your left). It is only a wee bit more space than you might think but a nice overall location. Elevators are on the port side and "Radiance" also has extra wall in center so don't hear much hallway noise. Any other questions, feel free to e-mail me, Robbie
Kar06 - When are you going? Wife and I are in 9594 as well on 11/9. If you go prior, please let us know about that cabin. We thought the balcony might be a good bit larger as well and aft balconies weren't available.
If we are sailing prior, I will post info for you.
