I was "upgraded" to an aft cabin. Huge balcony, but NEVER AGAIN will I take that area!! The balcony was mostly open to the above decks, and it was filthy dirty every morning and evening, soaking wet, and unuseable for me, because people on the Lido deck (2 floors up) frequently tossed, dropped or otherwise lost their beer & soda cans, water bottles, and cigarettes which landed on my balcony. Almost got hit in the head twice while sittng out there. Complaints to HAL front desk provide no relief from this matter. Made the balcony virtually a waste and pissed me off greatly!!!I have dreamed about getting one of these aft cabins. Especially the Cat. S with the wrap around deck. We are planning a last minute cruise and one is available, but now I'm getting cold feet based on Suzie's problems. Was this an isolated thing?

Has anyone else been sorry about getting an aft stateroom? If the afts are no good what about the irregular shapped ones like - S7088 or S7087 on the Westerdam.
I'm also wondering if it would be better to be on the Rotterdam deck close to the Neptune lounge.
