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.
