Another Question regarding Staterooms | Debbie's Caribbean Resort Reviews Forums

My family and I are currently booked in an outside cabin. I was talking to our agent last night, and she is trying to get us to upgrade to the balcony, it runs an additional $200 per person (approximately). So, is it worth it, has anyone ever seen or stayed in this category of cabin. I’m trying to figure out if I should even upgrade at this point, or just stay with what we have.

Hello there,Although we have not yet taken any cruises, we are interested in a Disney Cruise at some point, I know several people who have taken cruises and they attest to "Book a balcony room". They have assured me it’s worth the extra $$ (although it’s already expensive enough right),….but IMO I would definitely go with the balcony just in the off chance that while at sea you just want to relax in your room…..but "there’s nothing to look at but the four walls and you do feel like getting air and maybe reading outside, etc." Get the idea. That’s my take on it but we all have to do what we can with our budgets also.Good luck and I’d love to hear what you stick with. Oh, what Cruise line and where to??
Thanks Sasha,I have talked to several people and they say the same thing…

well I’ll have to sleep on it and see if the availability & prices are still there. I keep thinking of what people say about sitting in the room and looking at four walls, not my cup of tea.

So, I went to book the balcony suite & the next agent I talked to tells me, (without even going into her system) that I’m looking at$1,300 per person. I just said "no thank you" and left it at that.

I’m going to call back in the next couple of days, and talk to the original girl that I talked to in the first place. She sounded like she knew what she was doing.

I have stayed several kinds of rooms and thought that I would not care since you "never spend time in your room anyways". However, once you have a nice room with a nice balcony you find yourself laying out in the sun or sitting and reading in the privacy of your own space. When you want all the comotion you head up on deck, but gives you some options. There are some price differences though.

It’s always been my philosophy, also, that the nicer your accommodations, the more you will use them, whether on a cruise or staying at a resort.
