There are minor differences in balcony size. The VS and the outboard PS balconies have a vertical structural member that slightly obstructs (IMO, others think it's a huge problem) the balcony. You have room for a table with 4 chairs, 2 loungers, and 2 little side tables.

All of the stern balconies are very quiet and private, and fully covered.

spongerob is correct,obstructions can be a real pain in the you know what!

stern balconies are the way to go!

Thanks for the feedback - I am sold on the aft cabin but am torn between booking the Aloha 751 cabin which is in between the Owner's and Grand Suite or Caribe 749 which seems to have a larger balcony...we plan on doing the dinner on the balc program at least once or twice so dont want a cramped balc. I hadnt really considered the obstruction on the aft side cabins - thanks for pointing that out...any other words of wisdom?
