Default Balconies on back of Voyager of the Seas

I am considering upgrading from an inside cabin to a balcony on Deck 6 that is on the back of Voyager of the Seas. I have been warned that the balconies on the back of the ship are metal, get very hot, and that you have to stand up on the balcony in order to have a view of the water. Can someone please confirm if this is the case, and if you would still recommend the back of the ship over a balcony that is more mid-ship.

One other question - Should I be concerned about noise if I change to a cabin on deck 6 (i.e. right above the Promenade)?

THANKS!!!

there isn't any problem with noise. rooms are practicly sound proof. we've had an inside cabin on deck 6 of the voyager twice and there wasn't any problem

It will also depend on where on the back your cabin is. We had one more in the corner and didn't have any problems with the support beams that are more centered. We actually had a huge cabin, the largest we've ever had, as for noise, no it was not a problem.

the balconies on deck 6 look out on a large flat deck area that is actually a roof like structure. True, you have a balcony but it's like having a hotel roon with a balcony looking out onto a roof. The exception is (as the other poster mentioned ) a corner cabin. If you are upgrading to a balcony, either move up to a corner balcony on deck 7 or get a cabin with balcony on the side..
On the rear, cabin # 7688 is great. It's on the corner, rear , has a large balcony and also has a very large round cut-out on the side so you can see behind as well to the side. # 7388 on the otherside is the same.
Personally I would not get a cabin on the rear of this class ship unless it was above deck 6 and on the corner, as there is just too much grill work and flat surface area blocking the center cabins facing aft.
Check your brochure and you will see it shows a large blank area in front of those cabins. That's the large flat roof like area I mentioned.

Good luck and happy sailing.

I don't remember exactly what deck we were on, but it was a higher deck, I'm thinking deck 9.
