A balcony can also play a very romantic part of your trip. The moonlight streaming in will set the atmosphere for a cozy night. Another great advantage to a balcony is that you can open the doors to let fresh air into your stateroom.
Are you debating whether or not to get a cruise stateroom that includes a balcony? Should you spend the extra money to get a view of the water and the chance to step out and get fresh ocean air in your room? Depending on what is important to you, a small balcony (which is also called ‘liten balking’ in the Norwegian language) room could make a huge difference in your vacation.

The pros of getting a cabin with a balcony are the view! You have the ability to step out and find sweeping spans of the horizon and your cruise ship gliding over beautiful waters. If you would rather enjoy the day in solitude a balcony room gives you the option to get some sun yet not be bothered by other travelers.
If you need total darkness in your slumber it probably isn't a good idea to get a room with a balcony. The lights of the cruise ship and light emitting from the skies will stream through the windows and into your room. For most cruises, cabins are packed in extremely close. If you have a neighbor which makes a lot of noise and likes to spend time out on their balcony, it would make it very difficult for you to enjoy your time out there as well.
Hopefully, you'll be able to make a decision with the multitude of both pros and cons listed above. Just make sure that whether you choose to reserve a balcony room, or not, that it shouldn't keep you from enjoying your vacation. Make the best of the choice and create amazing memories.
