Great photos. I really miss the Sun and Dawn, now that they are down under I haven't been able to take a cruise on either. They are lovely ships.

Default Sea Princess balconies

From the photo, it looks as though the Sea Princess's balconies are different from other ships I've been on. Are they?

Default Sea Princess Balconies

Dawn, Sun, and Sea Princess ship balconies are "HULL" balconies, they cut holes in the hull, and put a rail and panel on the edge of the hull.

Diamond, and the new Royal all have balconies attached to the HULL of the ship.

I like both the Hull balconies can provide more protection from the elements.

We will be on the Sea Princess in Aug. 2012 to Alaska.

Thank you Gay Cruiser for the explanation. I'm glad there are railings. I was afraid that one would have to stand to see the water. Enjoy your trip to Alaska!
