Until lines decide they are now a floating Sing Sing and all doors including balconys will be under lock down at certain times then I reserve the right to open and close it when it suits me. What next you cannot go back to your cabin after 10pm as you may disturb passengers already asleep on that corrider?

On the commercials for cruise ships, they have people standing on the balcony with curtains flowing in the breeze. I'm just saying................

I think that we all know that T.V commercials aren't necessarily the way things actually are.
If someone wants to leave their balcony door open thinking they will hear a gentle swishing of the friendly ocean lulling them to sleep, power to 'em-- after getting their cabin full of hot, humid air and spending most of the next day running the a/c full tilt trying to cool it off again, and all the while complaining that the a/c isn't working very well, then let them learn the hard way. If you don't believe the salty humid air enters the cabin, take a bath towel and a chair, leave the balcony door open and place the towel over the back of the chair and sit it near the open door, on the inside. Then next morning, when you shower, use the towel.
And believe it or not, in spite of all the warnings over the inter-com and in printed materials, there are those who still insist in throwing cigarette and cigar butts over the side--it's not likely to blow all the way into your cabin but the possibility is very real that it could happen--remember the Princess ship a few years ago that had a huge fire from a cigar or cigarette butt that was flipped over the side--anyway, suit thy self and learn the hard way !! That's the way a lot of folks have to learn.

Just a thought here ... if the cruise line puts up a sign saying to keep the door closed they have a very good reason, otherwise they wouldn't have it up there.

Arrow The Ocean Breeze cost about 40% more than a inside cabin.

Part of the cruise experience is the ocean air, especially if you pay for a balcony.
I find that when your at certain posts of call, the mosquitoes find their way into your cabin.
You always here that little buzzzz when your ready to fall asleep or see one fly in front of the TV while in bed.

They suck, literally

Anyway If you have never booked a cruise with Princess.
I can send you a Princess referral and you will receive $25 discount with any first time booking on a Princess Cruise with any agency you choose.
It's good for 2-years.
You must complete the referral before making your first Booking with Princess, this goes for anybody in your cabin over 18 (2-maximum discounts per cabin).

Bon Voyage
