We are booked into this cabin in May. I found a thread about the Miracle (sister ship) and they posted photos of the cabin. The link is here: http://boards.cruisecritic.com/showt...highlight=6279 It really looks nearly the same as some of the suites I have seen. We are looking forward to staying in it.

We had this cabin on the Spirit in May. LOVED it! Bathroom was the same size as any cabin, but the room was much bigger than the standard cabins we've had in the past. There were three of us in the cabin. DD chose to use the pull down bed rather than the couch so we still had extra seating space.
One closet was probably six feet long, including two feet of shelves at one end. The other closet was less than two feet wide. There was also a dresser and a cupboard under the TV. We had plenty of storage space.
This was our first balcony, so I can't compare it to others. I think it is both wider and longer than standad balconies. We tended to use it more in the morning than other times. It was hot in the afternoon, when it was in the direct sun and the ship wasn't moving and very cool at night.
We booked it as an ES, but because there are only a couple cabins in this
category, don't expect a price drop.
It was a splurge for us, and as much as we enjoyed the space I probably wouldn't book it again. I'd rather have a cheaper cabin and cruise more than have an expensive cabin and cruise less. But there may be more "regular" balcony cabins in our future.
My husband has pictures on his cell phone. I will try to get them posted for you but it won't be until this evening.
