Cabins with balconies or suites

I know that going on cruises is where you meet new people and things......but my family and I always choose a suite with a private balcony. For those times when we want to relax and chill without the crowds Love

We just booked our first balcony room for the Coral Princess Panama cruise on 2018. On our last Panama we agreed it would be better, a little more privacy.

I've had 2 balcony rooms and love them. Never had a suite, and was looking into them for S&G's. I would get a suite if A) I had that kind of money to spend and B) There were separate rooms for others to sleep in.

You will love it John and will be spoiled. Our first cruise we got upgraded to a balcony and got hooked from there. I use it in the morning, evening and at times throughout the day. Absolutely love having a balcony

I am hoping for an upgrade, but not sure if it will happen

I find I cannot fully enjoy a cruise without a balcony -- sitting there watching the waves roll by under the moonlight with a bottle of wine...Love

My BF loves listening to the waves at night...

My first cruise (a very long time ago) was a bunk cabin with a very small porthole. We we young and foolish and balconies were not in our price range. Didn't spend much time in the room.

My next cruise (and all since) have had balconies and I LOVE them. We also had a large group one time and got a NCL 3BR Garden Villa for a family cruise. GO FOR IT. If you have a large group and 6-8 people stay in the villa and the rest get inside rooms, the average price per person is less than a balcony and there is room for all in the villa (except to sleep)!

My next cruise is an outside window again and am hoping the upgrade fairy visits me. I will check to see if the offered room is OK but will be happy with the outside cabin as it is in December out of NYC and we will only have a few days where we would be on the balcony. I can tough it out if need be.

"Upgrade Fairy"? Cute!

yes, and it is heavenly

I have never taken the route of a balcony or even a window as we are never in the cabin for any length of time. This year we booked a cabin with a window so I will see what I think about it. We like to be on the go, so I am concerned that a balcony would be a waste for us
