I would concur with Middleton of Warminster. If you had a glass fronted balcony on Queen Victoria earlier this year and enjoyed it, thats what I would choose on QM2.Have a lovely time. Richard .

This type of balcony is also known as a in hull balcony which means that is enclosed within the hull of the ship, more enclosed than a standard balcony they are ok for a transatlantic crossing as all you see is the ocean also being enclosed there is less wind, if you are not doing a crossing then I recommend a more standard balcony like you had on the Q.V.

Deck 8 on qm2 is the lifeboat deck - obstructed view - does the lifeboat completely block the view or is it possible to still see some of the sea from one of these balconys??

The best solutions in the obstructed view category are the forward B6 cabins, or the last B5 cabins back. These four cabins are only partially obstructed by lifeboats (only one side of the balcony is obstructed), enabling a sitting person to still have ample sea view.
