Hi,
I never actually booked an aft balcony but I got to go into my friends suite, which was on the corner of the back of the ship with an aft balcony that was about 100sq ft. It was really nice, I went there a lot on sailaways. We even ate out there cause it had a table lol. Its a totally different perspective than being on a side balcony, first of all you get a good 180 degree view of everything around the ship vs. just whats on one side of it. Some of the disadvantages would be possible engine noise/ vibration, and you may feel the effects of the waves a little more since you will be in the back. But overall, I think its well worth it and you should be lucky! You'll have a great view

Default Aft Balcony

About the aft balcony. I actually had a aft balcony when i was on royal caribbean explore. I def didnt like it becuase of all the noise and vibrations. I would perfer an inside cabin in the middle of the ship over a aft balcony. But hey the view is awsome and im pretty sure the elevators are pretty far from your room too. But hey its up to you, if u can stand the noise and vibrations then go head n stay there.

thanks for the info guys (:

i was actually only expecting to get an Ocean view room but my mom surprised me by getting us a balcony. and then the prices dropped so she upgraded us.

the noise, i don't think would be much of a problem for me. for some reason i can sleep through a lot of noise but then i'll wake up when i hear my phone vibrating. the motion i'm kinda iffy about but i figure once i'm asleep i wont really notice it.


if you guys remember anything else or if anyone else has stuff to add please do (;

from what i remember of aft balconies...you get more room. at least the one we had...it was more spacious than the normal balconies. but an awesome view.
downsides: loooooooooong walk to the stairs/elevator and the motion was more intense way in the back

I was in an aft balcony on the Carnival Freedom and it is not that far away from the elevator. It is only like 9 or 10 cabins to the elevator. Look at the deck plans of the Valor and see where your cabin is in the back and see how far it is away from the elevator. Carnival ships have elevators in the front, middle, and back of the ship.

haha yeah hopefully.

i looked at the deck plans like you suggested, it doesn't seem like a far walk to the elevators only about 7-9 cabins or so.

You'll like the aft balconies, they really are a lot more spacious and the view is absolutely fantastic. You may hear some engine noise but usually not too much, mainly just when leaving a port. And the back is one of the better places to be (other than the center) as far as movement. Ships are more balanced in the back because theres more ideal weight in the back, as in, theres more stuff back there. The front of the ship is the part that clips and cuts the waves and although there are fresh and saltwater ballasts in the front of the ship, it still bounces around more.

i had an aft balcony once, i believe it was on celebrity constellation but i'm not too sure.
i think aft balconies are bigger, but that might have been just ours because we had a suite. our balcony was the size of my backyard, and i'm not exaggerating. then again, i have a small backyard.

i love aft balconies because you can see both sides of the ship, instead of just one. i also didn't notice any noise or anything like that, it felt and sounded the exact same as a side balcony.

The problem with the balcony is that it takes away the size of your room, because the balcony cuts into your room, basically the balcony is waste because your not gonna spend anytime on it anyway. :o

I disagree, a balcony can be a great place to be when coming to or leaving a port. It is also cool to just sit outside on the balcony in the morning before you go other places during the day, or late at night to watch the stars.

I dont really care whether it cuts into room size or not. I barely spend any time in my cabin whatsoever so it doesnt matter to me. Like bbozeman said it is great to sit out at night at look at stars and my favorite part to hear the ocean, and also to watch as you pull into a port but if I had to decide I would just pick an interior room because I'm only in there to sleep, change clothes and shower. About an hour during the day to prepare for dinner and about 2-5 hours of sleep every night and thats it..

Ohh well i was just wondering if there is like excessive bumping. I heard from a friend that the reason back of the ship rooms are cheaper are due to how annoying the rocking and sounds are.

Incorrect

A balcony increases the square footage of a stateroom. With the rare exception of a pre-1990 vessel, all modern cruise ship utilize exterior balcony structure which is easier to install and provides a more optimal outdoor experience for the stateroom guest. Many balconies add in excess of 50-100 square feet to a cabin, a significant figure given that many cabins are between 200-300 square feet.

While it may increase the room if you count the balcony as part of the room it decreases the sleeping space alright and if we wanted this random info from you "dj carolina" we would just go on websites and look up the square miles of the room which no one cares about except you obviously who must get on a cruise take out you ruler and measure the lenght width and height and multiply them and get the volume

btw idiot its not miles and another thing he is correcting you because of the plain and simple fact that a member that needs the information doesnt need your stupidity. and another thing it does NOT take away from your sleeping space if you can read... the beds are the same size and the room is larger. and the original poster does care or she would not have asked.

I apologize that my factual information is not of good use to you, but my english professor always said for me to support a statement I make with facts, which is what I've done. Now: If you choose to count the balcony as part of the full cabin, then yes i suppose it could reduce sleeping space. However, you will not find an interior/oceanview cabin that utilisez the full amount of space available on a balcony as space for the guest's use, or in your case sleep.

The benefit of a balcony isn't that to provide more sleeping space, but rather to offer an access to an exterior part of the ship which is found by many passengers to be desirable for a variety of reasons to include smoking, photography and of course the fresh ocean air. I suppose, if you were so concerned about having optimal sleeping space you could always sleep on the balcony....

ok well i have quite a few things to say,

one Ainsley is correct, i do care. that's why i asked the question.

two Mr. Buffet, Djcarolina was just correcting something you said, don't be getting all mad and defensive because he proved you wrong.

three djcarolina always provides good and (as far as i can tell) accurate information for people like me who have little experience cruising.

four thank you for all the information

and five, the last part about how if he wanted to have more sleeping space he could sleep on the balcony made me crack up

hi. you're weird (=
GO MR BUFFET!
i highly agree it takes space away,
go on a cruise website and look at the difference between an ocean view state room and a balcony room, the oceanview looks much bigger
don't be rude to people who state their opinions
cause clearly you state your all the time.
