Jewel - Which balconies connect?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Looking to book 2 cabins on the Jewel, northbound to Alaska next year. Ideally, we'd like to book 2 cabins with a connecting balcony.

 

Are the only balconies that connect on the Jewel the 'family balconies'?

 

These are $80 pp more expensive than a standard balcony, and from everything I can tell the cabins are exactly the same size. So we'd end up paying $320 more between the 4 of us just to have the connecting balcony.

 

Are adjacent standard balconies able to have the balconies opened up?

 

Thanks,

Opening the balcony dividers is a fire hazard and against NCL standards. You MIGHT be able to have them opened by the steward, but don't expect it. You might as well just get two balcony cabins next to each other.

 

Just looking at deck plans there are several connecting cabins on deck 9.

The definition of "Family Balcony" only means that the cabin can hold a family of up to four people and it has a balcony. It has nothing to do with balcony dividers being opened since, as the previous poster says, that is against fire safety rules.
