We are going on an alaskan cruise. It really just depends what kinda cruise you are going on. If its a caribbean cruise, which we have been on, i would say no to the balcony/window because theres nothing to see except miles and miles of water. For an alaskan cruise, we are getting a balcony cuz 2 days out of it we are sailing through channels with breathtaking views..

Yes, there are always decks with lounge chairs where you can sit and look out. There should also be indoor lounges with big windows and stuff. The only plus to balcony rooms is having privacy while looking out at the water. I’ve been on two cruises with interior staterooms, and did just fine finding places to sit and enjoy the view outside of my room.

We are seriously thinking about doing a cruise for the honeymoon, we love them!  If we do the only we’d do is royal caribbean freedom of the seas.. this ship is crazy!

We are definitely going on a cruise! 

Here’s my opinion on the balconys/windows: I’ve only ever been on Caribbean cruises (both with Carnival) and I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND a balcony, if you can afford it, or at least a window. I’ve only stayed in the inside rooms, and they are great (I mean, you’re on a cruise!!) but you have absolutely no sense of what time it is, because if you turn off the lights it is always pitch black – even if it’s 2:00 in the afternoon. That can be very disorienting!

Also, on the last cruise we went on (the one where FI proposed! :D), my sister had a room with a balcony and I was so jealous! We went over there every morning and sat out on the balcony and just looked out at the water. True, all you can see is water but honestly, I think that’s my favorite thing in the world – looking off the ship and seeing nothing in any direction but water! And the nice thing about balconys is that it’s your own private place – there are tons of spots on the ship where you can look out at the water, but the balcony is all yours. It’s just a really awesome thing to have.

Just my opinion!! πŸ™‚

we were also engaged on a cruise, so we would love to take a cruise honeymoon…however, because of the time of year we’re getting married, i wasn’t able to get time approved off from work…however, we’ll try to take a short cruise possibly in the beginning of december – for a nice getaway and a chance to see the cruise ship all decorated for the holidays! =D

We’re taking our very first cruise to the Bahamas for the honeymoon. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

I’m actually scared of the ocean and boats, and the fiance gets motion sickness so it should be an interesting trip πŸ˜€ lol

@ thecolorteale – don’t worry, you’ll do great!  when i went on my first cruise, i was like your fiance and actually got quite seasick the first night (there was a tropical storm!!) but after that it was alright.  also, the cruise ships are so huge that you don’t even feel like you’re on a boat!  it is the craziest thing =)

Well I’ve already laid out the rule that the only way I’m going is if we have a balcony room because any other room I would probably freak out in. πŸ˜€ And by freak out I mean like panic attack lol! But I’m kind of excited about it, since we are getting a balcony room and we hopefully will go to Dolphin Cay at Atlantis. πŸ™‚

We just got back a month ago from our honeymoon cruise, and we had a blast. it was our first cruise, and I get seasick easily, so I was pretty nervous about it…but the previous posters are right, you really don’t notice you’re even on a ship mos of the time. We had a room with a window, but not a balcony, and we were fine with that. There were so many nooks and crannies all over the ship that it was easy to find private places to relax and enjoy the view (we were on Royal Carribean’s Brilliance of the Seas).

We’re already talking about where we want to cruise next!
