The reason we went with aft penthouse on Breakaway was the difference in price between a balcony in April for our 10th anniversary or October for OUR Shared birthday (hubby's 40th!). We are only paying $200 more for our Aft penthouse Haven suite than we would have for a balcony in April!! WTH!? LOL plus, I think the extra space will be good for our young girls. And I'm hoping to enjoy some music from H2O while relaxing on my balcony.

One of my favorite things to do when we were in the GV on Dawn was just stand by railing overlooking the pool deck (or lying on lounger ) and listening to band play. I absolutely loved that!!! My husband and I also have Oct birthdays (one day apart). I am sure you will love your aft balcony. I loved laying out there in middle of the night listening to the sound of the wake and staring at the stars....very peaceful.

Coming from the East coast too, we are spending two days in Honolulu before the cruise and flying home directly after. 151 days can not come fast enough!
You will have an awesome time. Any questions just ask

None at all. It was very peaceful. If there were people standing near the rail on the promenade on 6th deck you could hear them only if you were at your rail. No soot at all.

Loved looking at all your pictures. Was excited to see balcony size as we have one of the 2 bedroom aft suites for our 9/6/14 sailing. Cabin 9698.
