balcony room was a 185 SF double twin room. While 185 SF may seem small, we easily fit three girls into this room during my Bacherlorette Cruise last year.
We used to book the cheapest possible rate out there and spend the least amount of time in our room. Having a balcony room allowed us to spend time relaxing vs. consistently on the go.
The week we went on our cruise was beautiful, which gave us the most spectacular nightly sunsets. Since we opted for anytime dining, we found ourselves at dinner every night after the sun went down.Landmark Vineyards Chardonnay. Prior to the cruise, we picked up up a few cute plastic wine glasses and brought our own bottle opener. This way we could have our wine with a view.
ran a marathon a few days prior and needed to relax, this was the perfect environment for both of us. If we didn't have the balcony room, we would have found ourselves sitting at a table watching the sunset but not truly enjoying it.
Along with taking multiple drink selfies, we also took quite a few ship selfies from our balcony, including a "sister ship" as we quickly nicknamed the vessel.
Without a doubt, spending the extra money on a balcony room is worth the expense. It changed our entire outlook on cruises and really upped the overall experience.
