Beryl thanks so much for those links, Haven't read the reveiws yet but will. Nice bunch of pictures. I had no idea they had anything like Lainai rooms either till I got Mama Ducks listing. Paw is not sure think Corky he is afraid he will end up sharing views of his plaid undies with other addicts again. Personally I like the idea could not aford the balcony but heavens that would be a giant one with a good neighbor Niecie. Going to give it a try.
For that matter, I normally have a different stateroom from the new Lanai staterooms on HAL ships, and it gets hosed down as well. I don't pay attention to it. But then, I became accustomed to New York noise living there!
I was spoiled on my last cruise aboard the Westerdam . I had a suite for the first time . Now I have a suite at a good price , thanks to a certain Mama Duck.I love the Neptune Lounge and the great service .
Maw, although I sent this to you in a PM yesterday.. as I see that you have a post on it, I will copy it here in case it helps others that are looking at these cabins.

Re: Maw Here maw, here are a few links to the cabin that you are booking.
if you send me the cabin number I will search for photos of that actual cabin.
there is some good reading about them in these links.
When you told me about them I thought they were the ones we had seen on a ship years ago, but those were raised up off the promenade deck about 4 foot. so you had your own balcony.
With these that you are looking at, you just pop you out directly onto the promenade.. a good thing and a bad.
Very nice for ease of getting outside.
Even though they have a special coating on the windows.. remember that most reflective coatings only work with the light off
In the evening when you switch on your lights, you had best check that there is not a crack in the curtains.
Also, remember that any time you pop out those doors...the door will lock behind you.. unlike any regular balcony door. So always have your room key with you.
The constant stream of traffic would bother us, (especially the early morning joggers) but as you said, with reduced hearing, this is not a problem for you both.
I also mentioned in another PM that if in the evening you can see yourself in those doors, and they look like a great mirror.. then it means that anyone outside can see in as clear as day. and remember.. NO GAP in those curtains.. or we will see paws shorts on you-tube..
