We sometimes book balconies and sometimes interiors with either French Doors or walkway windowsso we get natural light. For our canalcruiseon the Miracle, we booked a bowling alley balcony(185 sq. Feet). The balcony isas big as the cabin. We plan to spend a lot of time on deck during the transit, but there are only 5 port days. We will enjoy the balcony on the 8 sea daysand will probably spend a little time on it during the transit. It cost double the price of a regular interior, but for this cruise we believe it will be worth the extra money.
We have a bowling alley balcony on the Miracle transit, too. We have had an extended balcony before, but this is our first bowling alley one. Do you know if there are 2 lounge chairs on them?

That is a question I would ask on the Carnival board, as there is far more knowledge there, and Miracle has those balconies anywhere it sails, not limited to the Panama Canal.
