Opening Balcony Partitions on Freedom of the Seas

Recommended Posts

I am looking at staterooms for an upcoming cruise, and cannot find connecting rooms for our family. I was thinking of getting rooms next to each other and opening the balcony partition but I read a comment from someone who said you can only open the partition if you have connecting rooms. Is that accurate? And is it also accurate that you cannot open the partition on aft balconies?

Balcony partitions on side-facing balconies can be opened on Freedom, pending managment approval.

Connecting cabins having nothing to do with the ability of  Balcony dividers being opened. Aft balconies have solid partitions between them that do not open

Thank you.

That is what I figured about the connecting cabins, but I had to check since someone did state that when I was looking for answers before posting. Bummer about aft cabins as the extra extra big balcony would be awesome!

Ive never heard of this before. That means that I could just open the partition to the balcony next to me and enter a stranger's balcony, and, potentially, their room, if their balcony door is open. 

 

This doesn't sound right to me.

I've also been able to open Freedom Class partitions with just my finger.
