I always guide my clients to never book the CC rooms on deck 9 - [a] because of the ghastly overhang that blocks the sun and [b] because of the glass porthole that is in the floor of the sky cafe which means that those in the cafe can look through the floor, and if they want, can see you on your balcony!!! No noise as the cafe is carpeted. Personally I would move, but you may like the overhang to protect you from the sun.....wait a min - you are going to the Baltics so I don't think the sun will be a problem!!!

We are thinking about booking a stateroom on Deck 9 as we want a balcony and CC. Can you advise exactly which staterooms are affected by these issues.

As we only booked this last week (for next year) would we have a problem if we requested a change of cabin?

No, your t/a should change it to what ever new room you want.

I have never had a real problem with noise in that area but it is true you can be overlooked from the Hair Salon "sticky out bits" ( technical term you know) so wouldn't advise sunbathing au naturelle. You could loose a lot sunshine the way back because you’re on the north side then but not on the way out....Neil.

It Is an going problem, hygiene on board!

It doesnt take a rocket scientist to know the s those people you see tr...

I find it hard to believe that given the amount of family friendly cruise options around these days, all of which include swimming pools, some even large scale on board water parks that it’s not compulsory for cruise companies to employ lifeguards, especially when you consider some of the recent tragedies that have occurred.Norwegian Cruise Line have announced that it will be joining Royal Caribbean and Disney Cruise Lines in employing certified lifeguards at all of the family pools acr...
