We have just returned from our cruise and had a suite the chairs are not fixed,they do not recline they are made of wood and heavy to stop them moving in the wind i think. i would advise you to think about going one deck down (deck 10) because we were woken each morning at 6.30 to the sound of people moving sunbeds on the wooden deck above.or take ear plugs friends who had an inside cabin on deck 5 slept in untill 10 30 each day and spent 1200 pound less than us.
Not sure how sleeping in every day meant they spent less !! (answer by smith). Could it be that they did not go on any shore excursions because they were not up in time? Or is it that they did their own thing and spent onshore, therefore less debt in their on board account? I suspect the latter. They were also probably enjoying the late night entertainment combined with the continual darkness you find with an inside cabin !
There room was 1200 cheaper than ours because they had an inside cabin we paid £2341 for our suit.they paid £1100 for there inside cabin,they had peace and quite we were woken each morning when the sunbed movers got up to put towels on them. we went on lots of trips including a fantastic helecopter flight over monte carlo.i think there room was better value for money.none of the trips require you to be up at 6.30,SO WHY SHOULD WE BE.
They are lovely solid teak chairs not the plastic beloved by other lines. Choose the position of your cabin carefully always. Not all suites/ balcony cabins are affected.
