Best I can tell, all of these rooms are at the very front of the ship.
Would the balcony be of any use at all when at sea?
Anyone with experience, please share your thoughts!
I looked at the location (mainly as the price was quite a bit less) for our upcoming pacific princess cruise. Decided I would play it safe and book the OS aft instead. Much less change of all that wind on the balcony.
We had friends aboard with us on the Royal for 24 days, and they were in one of the forward-facing suites on Deck 7, and they found, as long as the ship was sailing with the wind, that they could be on the balcony. If heading into the wind, it was a bit breezy.
Naplesam, I was on the Tahitian (which is similar to Pacific) in 07. We booked the suite on 6 right in front. The balcony is big but you overlook the crew and tons of wires. Wasn't too windy but I didn't care for the location. We have had aft cabins and the suites are much better IMO there.
If you have the choice I would pick the aft
