Show me your aft!

Recommended Posts

With the aft balconies being so popular, I thought it'd be fun to start a thread with pics of aft, aft-wraps on different ships.

 

I'll start with the Ecstasy E244

Thank you for starting this, Princess has the "Ultimate Aft Thread" which is incredibly helpful, I'm still waiting to find an aft cabin picture on the Splendor, we're in 6452 next to the aft wrap balcony, and we were just curious what the balcony looked like, I hope someone posts one, I've searched all over the internet to no avail.

I love this post.. We'll be in our FIRST AFT for October 2010.

Can't wait.

 

Thanks! I thought it'd be a neat idea. We had our first aft in February and have our next one booked for October on the Triumph. We looooooved it!

 

Hint - if anyone has a pic of cabin 7430 on the Triumph feel free to post ;)

What a great thread!! Although I must say that when going down the list quickly, it almost didn't look like you were asking to see aft...but another word that is used for a backend! LOL!!

Thanks for the giggle- it definitely made me do a double take...but I am looking forward to seeing more "aft" pictures so I can dream about the day I will be in one (((sigh...maybe one day!))) ;)

Wow, those balconies look luxurious!

 

The aft wraps on Spirit class ships are considered Suites.. they are bigger than the normal wraps on the Conquest ... Triumph and Victory..

I love this thread! We are sailing on the Pride on 5/16 and are staying in 8268. The ships layout shows it as a aft so I'm curious to see if anyone has pictures. The wait is just killing me so hopefully this will help pass the time!

How many in an aft? We are a family of 5 can these cabins hold 5? If not can we get the aft balcony next to the wrap and remove barrior? As of now we're looking at a cruise sometime in fall of 2011.

Depends on the ship some allow 3 per cabin.. most only 2.. you would have to see if the cabin beside would allow 3.. if not you would have to get one across the hall..

Most only hold 2. We are a family of 3, so we had to put our 7 year old in the adjoining cabin. It was like having a 2 bedroom suite, with 2 bathrooms.

Yes. The 4237/4239 combo even has a connecting door inside. The same on the opposite side (4228/4230)

We had Dream 8468 - one of the 2 wider aft balconies on Deck 8. Nearly twice the width of the standard aft at the same price.

We also had the 2 starboard extended balconies - 6451 & 6459. Made for a VERY long space when the dividers were open.

I'll be in my first wrap-around suite aft in July :)

Deck 7(no, I won't tell my cabin #, somebody may try to steal it from me :eek:), I know there are some pics out there...so COME ON PEOPLE, POST EM'!!

 

I love aft cabins. It's so quiet back there and looking at the wake is awesome in the morning/afternoon/evening/night. Plus, you get the complete privacy :p:rolleyes:

Careful with that thought. The neighbors above you can see down into your balcony:D They are not as private as a regular balcony.:eek:

Here are some of 7445 on the Freedom (we had the wraparound and 5 of the aft balconies next to it - unfortunately only 3 of them opened up to the aft.):

These are of the Conquest - I took them as they passed us a few weeks ago:

We're on the Destiny Jan 2011 in an OS. If I called to change to a wrap is this an upgrade or downgrade? Also does Destiny wrap come with VIP boarding?
