Stick to Caribe balcony cabins The balcony is twice the size of Aloha or Baja but around 50% is shaded by the deck above In our view, a nice combination On Dolphin deck you also get a larger balcony but, because the decks are stepped, you get no shade on Dolphin and no privacy either .

Neil & Ida Down - Answered a Question by Barnes (29 Sep 08 15:19)

Well Jilly B, I can find little wrong with this cabin, you would be close enough to the lifts and stairs to go up or down quickly and not to hear them in operation, although you are forward on the ship it is far enough away from the bows, you will have cabins above you and not entertainment or pool decks so the only extraneous noise will be waiting for the other shoe to drop and on the balcony the only position that overlooks your balcony is the bridge and they won't be too interested in what's going on or coming off on your veranda. If you know why "these people" are saying what they are saying I would be interested. Hope that helps. .... Neil.

Neil & Ida you are so knowledgable can you give me some advice just booked inside cabins on sea princess dolphin deck i am very nervous about inside cabin but couldnt afford the £300pp extra for obstructed view, D333 and couple around that area, been told these are bigger than others and all other grades we could only get on GTY. Not done princess before are they similar to Celebrity and cunard? Thanks in advance.

C325 is on carib deck 9starboard side about 200ft from the bow so you will get a bit of movement,you have a unobstructive view from the balcony, no lifeboats in the way, it all so should be reasonable noise free i myself would prefer a amidships location. you are right to be wary of upgrades unless it is to your benefit.

Two nights on Indy..

By Alison Ranaldi

Alison Ranaldi's blog

Last week I spent two nights on the newly revamped Independence of the Seas.We sailed from Southampton in glorious sunshine to Le Havre and back. This was my third time on board this ever-popular ship and I was keen to see the changes to her after a big refit. We had a balcony cabin on deck 9 which had everything we needed for a comfortable break. I’m not generally a fan of mini-cruises. They offer an excellent way for someone like myself to see the ships but I do not think they are a g...
