We also book the stern cabins whenever possible. It's the most relaxing place on the ship--that is a stern balcony. Seems like you can see to the ends of the earth from there and the most beautiful sun sets. Love the wake and the sounds when going to sleep at night. We try to leave our balcony door open so the sound puts us peacefully to sleep.
We have experienced some soot, but the room steward was always good about checking out our balcony lounge chairs and cleaning them off if need be.
Don't worry go have a wonderful cruise!!
