We have been on several cruises, including a couple of Sky class Grand suites, but this will be our first experience in Star Class and we want to make it as wonderful as possible. Right now we are booked in the 2 bedroom ATS on Harmony which looks really neat. My only concern is privacy/noise from the shows below. We tend to be folks that enjoy whiling away the hours sitting and enjoying staring out into the ocean from our balcony. Though the ATS balcony looks huge, is most of that space overlooking the theater area? Or is there still plenty of oceanside space? And can people sit and stare at you relaxing on your balcony all the time? Not that we are doing anything nefarious out there but it seems weird if we will be "on display" all week. For those of you that have sailed in this type of cabin what were your thoughts about it and pros and cons?
Also, we have the option of upgrading to the Grand Panoramic Suite which has a little hot tub for another $1,456. This doesn't on the surface seem to be worth it to me given the jump in price, although the hot tub is quite intriguing. Any thoughts or suggestions on whether this would, in fact, be an upgrade that is worth it or are we better off where we are?
Lastly, we would be very interested in any Star Class tips/tricks or ideas of things to ask for that you may want to share as we are new to this whole Star thing.
Thank you all SO much!!
