Yes we did. Every now and then the room steward would close the divider but it was easy to open and stayed open even when at sea. We were traveling with kids and was counting on having the balconies opened.
When you see how they are connected , you will be able to open them with a key or any small object(we used a pen) We did get a note from housekeeping telling us it was not allowed, so make sure you shut it when you leave and they'll never ow. The balconies on this ship are so small, that when the dividers are open you can actually move a bit! Have a great time!!
I can't answer that. Been on four cruises(Carnival,RCI,NCL) and never noticed. From reading other posts it seems variable, not only ship to ship but even sections of same ship. It would be helpful if this info was available when booking a cabin
I asked if we would be able to open up the balconies when I booked this cruise. The customer service rep asked a supervisor and they said it was okay but would like you to close them when you are not out on the balcony, seemed reasonable to me.
