I just returned from a cruise to the South Caribbean, and spent a lot
of time out on the balcony, which was so
beautiful, and very much worth it on a 7 day cruise. Out on the balcony in the morning, I saw dolphins and sea turtles in the ocean traveling along with us, though if I didn't have a balcony, I probably would have been up on a top deck and seen them anyway, since I love the waters (being a Pisces and all
But, now I'm seriously planning on doing a double booking on the same ship I was just on, in early December (3-17) of this same year, since the price is right at that time of year (RC's Serenade, two weeks - booking the same balcony room for a one week cruise one after another, so I'm on it for 2 weeks! Not that I really can afford it all with the 14 day European one my mom is hounding me to go on with her in spring 2006, but LIFE IS FOR THE LIVING! and I always pay for trips outright with what I have - not on credit cards), and I'm not going to let my love of balcony rooms stop me from going, since I can only realisticaly afford an ocean view room at best should I go on the European one.
I guess it really all comes down to priorities. Is it really worth it to you? Think - "What else can I have/do if I go for the cheaper room?". That is the real question.
Serenade Of The Seas - Southern Caribbean - 3/12/05 (7 night Southern Caribbean)
Empress Of The Seas - Southern Caribbean - 2/23/07 (3 night St. Kitts & St. Maarten)
Empress Of The Seas - Southern Caribbean - 2/26/07 (11 night Exotic Southern Caribbean)
