Ovation - ocean view with large balcony or not?

Recommended Posts

Hello~

 

I'm looking at booking a cruise to Alaska on the Ovation.   Is there a big difference in the Ocean view with large balcony versus the ocean view balcony???   I see that it is about 10 feet difference.   Would I notice the difference?   Is it the 10 feet worth $800??

I don't have experience on that ship, but I do have experience with a "larger" balcony versus a "regular" balcony. If the difference was $100, no problem. Not sure I would pay $800 for it...and that's coming from someone who does spend a decent amount of my time on my balcony (I won't cruise without one on a large ship).

Yes. No.

 

BTW, the extra cost is not just for the extra balcony space but location, which has a very subjective value.

Are you sure about those prices. Just checked for last week of June which is the highest priced week of Alaska sailings.  A 2D regular balcony is $2700.00 a 2C large balcony is 2825.00.  We are on the 2020 18 night Sydney to Honolulu and have  deck 8 1C which is the large balcony and paid about $200.00 extra. Maybe your travel agent is comparing apples to tomatoes.

I just noticed the state room is smaller by 20 square feet on the larger balcony
