But, hands down, my stateroom of choice is a Balcony. Why should you cruise in a Balcony Stateroom? Because it offers one of the best values on the ship, as you can enjoy amazing views from the privacy of your own balcony, without paying higher suite prices! Benefits of Cruising in a Balcony Stateroom Where do I start? There are so many benefits of cruising in a Balcony Stateroom, such as: • the large floor-to-ceiling windows add so much light and brightness that the stateroom seems so much larger overall! • the outdoor balcony is basically an extension of your stateroom living area, so you’re getting extra living space making a balcony stateroom an even better value • imagine being able to wake up and step onto your balcony to see the new destination you’ve arrived at, all while still wearing your pajamas! • if your significant other wants to sleep in, you can order room service and enjoy your breakfast on the balcony without...Read More
