DW and I stayed in a Cloud 9 spa suite on our W.Caribbean cruise in May. We loved the space! On previous cruises, we have stayed in regular balcony cabins and the spa balcony cabins are the same, only the decor is different. If you can afford the suite price, go with it as 3 people would be very comfortable in there. If you go with a spa balcony, please note that the ones on Spa deck (12) have uncovered balconies that do not block any sun and people above can look right down on you. The spa balconies on Panorama deck (11) are covered and are only a private elevator away from the Cloud 9 spa.

Don't book 11245 or it's equivalent on the other side of the ship. They are the last spa cabins on that deck and located at the stairs/elevators. We just had this room and thought we wouldn't have to smell smoke but had a chain smoker in the non-spa cabin next to us and the smell was very strong. Also a lot of noise from the stair and elevator area. I would book a spa cabin farther forward. You will love the spa! Other than the location of our cabin, we loved having a spa balcony and if we ever sail on the dream again we will book another one.
