looking at a B6 large balcony. Pictures and deck plans make me wonder about privacy. Looks like you may be sticking way out and in the open for others to see. If anyone has good pics and first hand opinions they would be appreciated.

Have a look at this photo of Breakaway. If you look at the balconies forward - deck 8 (lowest deck) has the mini suites with large balconies (M6) then directly above them are the larger balcony cabins (B6). Above those are the regular balcony cabins. Good photo for comparing the size and for getting an idea of privacy.

Gee, I don't think I like this. My concern isn't for those above looking down but those on the deck below looking up.



I've just started my research. We like a large balcony. Are these two categories, in these two locations our only option. How are the balconies on the aft ....I recall reading they are larger. Any pictures of those?
