Advice on Aft Balcony on Brilliance

Recommended Posts

Need some feedback/advise on Spacious balcony choices on Brilliance. Was checking out future cruise options and saw a nice deal for an Aft balcony(very end of ship). There was a corner aft balcony, cabin #9256 that I placed a deposit on right away. Has always been a desire of mine to cruise on an aft balcony. My question is: also available was a number of center aft balcony, like #9260. Also a hump balcony that the deck plan seems to show an odd shape, extra space balcony, #9092. Looked at cruisedeckplans.com and am a bit confused. Should I expect #9256 to have two lounge chairs and regular chair, as seen on pictures? What of the other two choices?  I am leaning toward keeping the corner aft balcony but would consider a reassignment if persuaded for good reasons. Any feedback is appreciated. Thanks.

9256 is awesome, a great choice on this class of ship. Been there done that and would do it again repeatedly.

I have been in 9260 which is nice but I also love not having a cabin on one side with 9256.The pinched balcony may not be as large as some folks think but I thoroughly enjoyed it both times I have had it.

Agree with Hagar, 9256 is a bit odd shaped (pinched), although a good choise. I think 9260 actually has as almost as much usable space.

Decks 8 and 9 aft are the best as far as noise is concerned. However we have had a deck 7 and 10 aft and would book either of them again, not that much difference in noise either from below on 7, or above on deck 10.

 I'm in that same cabin but on Jewel of the Seas which is in the same class. I have been in an aft-cabin on the Jewel and the view is awesome. I do not regret it. Can't wait till Christmas and New Year's cruise this year on Jewel.

Follow up question. Any issues with "motion of the ocean" or exhaust/fumes from stacks? Again, my thanks.

No issues on transatlantic sailings.

That is cabin 9260 on the Serenade, same as Jewel, Brilliance, and Radiance.

Below is 9658 on Brilliance
