Default Suite balconies

Looking for some info and insight about the balcony in the Royal Family Suite aboard the Voyager of the Seas on deck nine. It seems the aft balconies on decks 6 thru 8 have some framework obstructing the view off the back of the ship, except for the corners, which look like they may be desirable. Deck 10 aft balconies look like they all have great unobstructed views. What about the aft balconies on deck 9? We currently have the RFS on the Voyager in 9694. Anybody stay in that particular suite and if so what was your opinion of the balcony? We will probably use the balcony quite a bit while our children sleep so we would prefer a decent view. The framework seems to be visible but not as prominent on deck 9 as on the lower decks. Any input or experience about staying in that suite would be appreciated.

I kinda have the same question, we are at the back of the ship, deck 10 room 1692, has anyone been in this room and can help me out on a few questions. Windjuammer right above us will that be a noise problem? How's the balcony and the view. It's also has a sofa bed, suppose to be queen size for two people, we will have 4 in this room. Also it's a connecting room, will that be a problem with our neighbors(noisy room) Thanks KMBB

One other question to add. We are departing from Cape Liberty at 5 pm. Since we will be in the Royal Family Suite, will we get to board the ship early? RCI told us we would have a different line to wait in and a lounge, I think. We want to board the ship as early as possible, does anyone have any opinions about when you would really get to board if you are booked in a suite? I have read as early as 11am and RCI told us about 2pm, just trying to get a better idea of when to show up.

I stayed in a Junior Suite on Enchantment. I believe all the Vision class ships have the same basic layout (all Vision class are called "xxxxx of the Seas"). I stayed slightly towards the rear of the ship, deck 8 cabin 8060. Personally I think this was a great location, it was just a few steps away from the stairway and the elevators by the main atrium which is also slightly towards the Aft of the ship. If you look at the ships layout/map when you pick your cabin get something as close to the Atrium/elevators as possible because thats the central location where you get to anywhere you need to go on the ship, main dining room, lounges, casino, gift shops, front desk, etc etc..practically everything is located right there.

We never had a noise problem at all. Couldn't hear the people in the cabins next to or above us and I don't think they heard us. The balcony is well worth the extra dough!! Nothing compares to waking up in the morning, having room service bring you a pot of coffee and sitting on your little private deck and looking out over the island you arrived to silently the night before. We had 3 of us in the room, myself, wife and daughter and our daughter used the pull out couch. She didn't complain about it but even in a Suite you're in pretty close quarters. The room is about as big as a small hotel room. They make very good use of the space with plenty of closet and storage, drawers cabinets even a nice makeup table that my wife used. The suites have mini fridges also. The charge you for all the canned soda and bottled water that is sitting in your room and in the fridge. About 1.50 each, they just bill your SeaPass account.

The Royal Caribbean people that were at the airport checking people in for airport to port transfers told us not to bother getting to port early because there was nothing to do there and they wouldn't let us on the boat (strange comment I thought). But we took a taxi to the port for 8 bucks and arrived there at 11am, went through security, and check in (make sure you fill out your boarding forms online on royalcaribbean.com before you leave!) and we were on the ship at 11:30am, going through the windjammer buffet at 12 noon! Anything else you wanna know just hollar!
