Our cabin on B deck overlooked the one on C deck when we cruised on the Ventura in September.They are not completely overlooked - just the table and chairs. The balconies on B deck appear to be slightly larger than the ones above.

We were also on B Deck in September. Yes the balconies are overlooked. Just dont go too far out towards the balcony end in your undies and you will be OK. However you could always give the balconies above a treat! Sure Swift as we did saw some sights. Great Fun! Enjoy youselves.

We had a balcony on C deck on our recent transatlantic crossing on the Ventura. the balcony is approx at least 9ft x 9ft square, and the outside three or four feet is overlooked by the balcony above (which of course also means that it is more sunny!!!) ...we loved it !! If you don't want to be looked at just stay closer to the cabin window!! there was plenty of room just a shame they only had upright chairs and a small table...although I hear that from march 09 there will be reclining chairs!! there was enough room for sunloungers and I did hear someone suggest taking a cheap air bed to lie on!!!

Just what I needed to know! A larger balcony sounds a real bonus. Many thanks for replying.

My cousin and his wife went on the Ventura in September and his wife went out onto the balcony without realising she could be seen clearly-as she was naked and only realised what was happening after a few minutes one can imagine how embarrassed she was-these cabins should carry a health warning!!

Hello, In answer to your question my husband and I were on the Ventura in September. We were on R deck which overlooked the larger balonies of the lower decks. I can advise you that you are overlooked but with everyone looking out to see I dont think it will be a problem. It is a fantastic ship and I envy you your trip. Helen .

I Am Back!

By Gail Ryan

I am back.What is it about taking time off for a holiday?From the day you book your holiday to the day you leave seems to take an age to come around, but once you are there the days fly by and you are soon sat back at your desk and the sun and sea seem like a distant dream! It’s just not fair.I have once again been to Cyprus for my annual family holiday. The weather seems to get better every year – it must be this Global warming they keep on talking about! The weather was superb...

Norwegian Joy which will enter service in Summer 2017 will be based in Shanghai and Tianjin. I have recently returned from a cruise on Norwegian Epic around the Mediterranean and there were a lot of Chinese staff on board who were training and getting ready for the new ship.Norwegian Joy is being styled exclusively for the Ch...
