We are going to be in what looks like the last JS on the 8th floor (8578). Just wondering, is this going to be one of the larger balconies I have heard about on the boards? This is considered aft, the back of the ship, right? (Sorry, I'm not good at those terms!) Any info about this cabin or this general area of the ship, please pass on. This will be our 3rd cruise but first JS/balcony, so we are very excited.

I don't know about the balcony but I would think the location would be nice and quiet at night as it is under the fitness and spa center. Congratulations on your JS, I am sure you will love it. I hope you have beautiful weather!
The balconies for Jr. Suites are a bit larger than the balconies on standard balcony rooms. To get the bigger aft balcony, see if you can get either 8086, 8088, 8586 or 8588. These will have the larger balconies, and you will love it.
Wow, thanks for all the info! How do you go about trying to change rooms? Is that something I would do on board or try to do beforehand? I know it's booked almost completely, so do I have a shot at it? I know, we'll never want to go back to less than a balcony now! :-)
Try it now as the aft cabins go quickly. Call whoever you booked through and see if those staterooms are available. Tell them you want an aft stateroom and go to rccl.com to check the deck plans, and you can even tell them which ones you want.
