There are no regular "suites" although advertised as such. There are only "penthouse suites" and "demi suites".

These suites are on the Veranda deck - recessed because there is a public outside walking deck below.

The balcony has railings - because you can't sit on the narrow deck without putting your legs through the railings and dangling above the passengers walking, talking and smoking below.

Also, don't believe the brochure and deck plan that shows obstruction of view for only the lifeboats. The balconies look straight out onto cranes that lift up the inflatable lifeboats packed on the deck below.

When asked why these are not real suites - the answer is "they are demi suites". When asked where the "regular" suites are located - there are none.
