Hi Everyone,
Can you please advise when booking on a princess cruise, specifically sapphire ship, the difference between a balcony grade BC and BD, thanks So much. As we are celebrating our wedding anniversary. And any other tips you would reccomend as we have not been on a cruise in 27 years.

Usually the only difference is the deck it is on. I recommend booking a guarantee balcony. Every time I have done that I got a BA on Lido or Carribe

Location of the cabin would be the only difference.

Location is the only difference...I've stayed in BD cabins a couple of time and find them fine...they tend to be further aft or further forward but they are nice cabins.
