Default Breakaway Aft Facing Penthouse (S6) question

Hi. New to NCL. Thinking of Breakaway for 12 day southern Caribbean in Jan 14. Website says that Aft Facing Penthouse sizes range from 377 to 430 sf. Does anyone know which of the AFP is the 430 sf one? Does that mean smaller balcony? Please advise, thank you!

We have also booked an S6 aft penthouse suite on NCL Getaway, the 'sister ship' to NCL Breakaway. I too have been studying the deck plans and reading the literature on these cabins. It would appear that deck 12 has slightly deeper balconies (based on construction pictures of Breakaway) but I have no idea about cabin sizes. We booked deck 12 (cabin 12904) as we will be taking our son, who will be 9 at the time. Deck 12 is on the same deck as the kids club entrance. We looked on cruise deck plans website.
Just need to wait until Breakaway sails later this year to find out more.

We booked the same room on the Breakaway, sailing on 5/19/13. Will let you know. We are traveling with a 4 year old and 1 year old.

Thanks

Looking at the aft pictures of the Breakaway, it would definitely appear that deck 9 aft is the biggest followed by deck 12 aft. Both deck 9 and deck 12 S6 balconies have a supporting pole in them.

Check out these recent photos of the Breakaway.

The difference in size would likely be the balcony. We're in a deck 12 balcony (4 weeks from today!!) which looks huge.

I am thinking of upgrading from a deck 14 balcony to an aft-facing for an extra $540. I have 2 cabins, total $1100 upgrade. I was aft-facing in a wrap on the Carnival Victory throughout the Caribbean and loved it. I would be happy in my BC 14th deck balcony but those afts look gorgeous, and there is availability in the HC cabin next door for my parents. Ugh, decisions!

If you can swing it, i'd go for the 2 aft facing cabins. That HC cabin is huge and if you can remove the balcony divider, you will have a huge balcony right on the aft.

Be careful of the deck though. I think 14 is right below the garden cafe.

Default S6 Balcony

So how many of the S6 guest are going to have breakfast, lunch or dinner on the balcony. I'm thinking I want to try all. The more pictures I see the happier I get about the S6 suites and the huge balconies.....Every Enjoy

NCL website says that the S6 comes with half a bathroom. I can't find any pictures that confirm that. Does any body know for sure?
