Bailey - Answered a Question by townsend (18 Mar 08 10:58)

Answer is......it depends. Firstly, where you are cruising to. Down the Panama Canal, Hawaii and some parts of the Caribbean ...yes ok fabulous. A choppy Atlantic crossing, Bay of Biscay or really cold bottom end of South America - save your money for hot specialty coffees taken in the comfort a nice window lounge. Secondly - your age and status If I travel alone no way will I pay for the balcony to sit alone. I do not go on any cruise to stay my cabin. I sometimes go with my 86 year old who loves to sit out and watch whats going on and have a snooze on a sunny day. Thirdly... the cost If you are picking up some late deals or offers it may be that the difference is not that much. Fourthly ...your constitution If you are a good sailor and not prone to sea sickness then ok. Outside cabins are not as good in bad sea weather than inside cabins. In other words, like everything in this life you pays your money and you takes your choice.

Hello....It really depends on your point of view. An inside cabin will generally allow you to have all the ship’s facilities the outside and balcony cabin give and some say that you do not spend much time in your cabin. A balcony, particularly in the Caribbean gives you all the facilities plus the freedom to use your cabin in a different way. Reading a book or drinking tea or coffee in the early morning on the balcony or watching the ship arrive or depart from a tropical paradise whilst seated in your own space is wonderful. There has never been a contest as far as I am concerned and I would say it is worth every penny. I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do....Heathe.

I agree with heather. I've been in inside cbins and those with balconies and I now always try to go for the balcony if they are available. I find it especailly valuable when you have dyas at sea, as the open areas to sit out on the public areas (and inside too for that matter) sometimes have a lot of people around and a lot of noise and I just love the opportunity to get some peace and quiet, gaze out over the sea and soak up the sun. Also Princess do a dine on your balcony service where you can have either a Champagne breakfast or private dinner served on your balcony for a small additional fee (well I think it is anyway) and I'll certainly be doing both on my cruise with them at new Year. have a fantastic holiday, Mair.

I have always had a cabin with a balcony and find it so nice to be able to walk outside when you want and to know what the weather is and where we are. I think it is worth the extra money.

I personally would rather spend the extra money on other things but my husband will disagree.Last year in the caribbean we had a balcony on freedom of the seas and all i used it for was to put wet swimsuits over the chairs it was way too hot to sit out.my hubby loved it thoug.
