Here is a video of the ship's features.

Here is a video I found describing a mini-suite on the Grand Princess. This is not ours, but the same layout as ours.

Here is an example of what our room looks like, with the balcony.

And here is the deck plan of our deck. Notice that we are nearer the rear of the ship and very close
to the elevators and stairs, so food is not far away.
