We cruised on the Freedom, and the balcony dividers are translucent. They are also easily peeked around. Little kids are notorious for being peeker-arounders, and their parents probably don't want them getting an eyeful.
My boys are grown now, but I do know what it's like to have young children. While I think someone sunbathing nude should not do so if they don't have decent privacy, I can not think of a single instance where it is excuseable for a child to go around peeking either. Parents have to teach their kids to not do that. And they also have to expect their kids on occasion to be just too curious, mischeivous or stubborn to obey. If my boys would have peeked around the divider, I would have punished them, and appologized profusly to the folks on the next balcony.
If there were no privacy between the balconys, I suppose I would have tried to ask the folks next door if they knew when they wanted to do that, so we could leave. But generally that just gets you told where to go, in no uncertain terms.
