Iam getting ready to book 12 Balcony rooms, Which deck has the best Balcony's? I understand one deck does not have the see through glass on the balcony's so I do not want to book that deck. Thanks for any info
I certainly agree with you that these rooms should be BC. We booked a BB guarantee and ended up with one of these rooms. I am very unhappy about it as we usually sit for hours on our balcony and enjoy the ocean. I don't think there is anything that can be done except hope for another upgrade.
Look in one of HAL's brochure's such as May 2004-Dec 2005, Caribbean Cruises, page 69 for the Vista class ships. A diamond shape symbol indicates: " Staterooms have solid steel verandah railing instead of clear-view Plexiglas railing." Forward Cabins 4001 thru 4042 on the Upper Promenade deck are annotated with the diamond. I don't see any others.
B4166 and B4164 are excellent rooms if you have 2 parties going. They have extra long balconies because there is a hallway between these 2 rooms. If you open up door between balconies you have about a 30 ft. balcony (plexiglass). These are on Upper Promenade deck. Excellent rooms!
