You need to weigh up the ports of call & the scenery en route. For instance a balcony for me, is less of a priority in commercial dockyards as opposed to sailing into a Caribbean Island. Having said that, once tried you'll be spoilt for life.....Wilba.

All of them but maybe in this order of preference: Alaska, Northern Europe, Caribbean, Mediterranean, but not necessarily in that order as for me there is no contest. ... Neil .

Since we first tried a balcony my wife will not want to book anything else regardless of how often or not we use it but it is extra space with sometimes great views. Our preference would be Caribbean and the Med the others might leave you a bit out in the cold. We always remember or arrival in Venice from our balcony[starboard side] great views of the city and similarly when in Sydney a spectacular view of the Opera house [port side].

All of them. Once you have experienced a balcony cabin, nothing else will do. Its your own little space. Views out onto wherever you are docking. Its extra I know but what memories you come back with, and the photos. Priceless!

Yes I so agree with you especially in the winter time. On a real winter cruise!! outside on your cabin with a glas of hot toddy or some nice good wine. Look at the Northern light can life be better??? Caroline/Norway.

I think I am correct in saying that to sail to Hawaii from the East Coast is a 4 day trip there and 4 days back, all at sea. Would you also recommend a balcony for this trip? Also what of a Translantic? I thank you all for your comments.

West coast Los Angeles to Hawaii all at sea about 4 days each way yes these cruises used to be popular with Americans but not now, they can get longer better cheaper Caribbean cruisers so not a lot of cruise ships are doing them now. i would always chose a balcony cabin apart from a transatlantic crossing then a ocean-view cabin would be my choice.

Depends on the weather no-one would want to sit on a balcony if it was really cold and if it is just for nipping in and out for a cig its a waste of money but if going to a hot country then a balcony is a must.
