I have a question about the locks or the setup of the "patio doors". My youngest will be 5 at the time of the cruise and she's completely fearless. Last time we went, we only had my daughter who was 2 and couldn't get out onto the verandah without our help. You guys just came back from the cruise - can anyone tell me if it would be safe to have a verandah on this cruise with two young girls? I really don't want my DD5 jumping over the railing into the ocean. Also, since I'm not thrilled with boats (think Titanic ), can anyone who was in a stateroom with one of those big porthole thingys tell me if it opens?? Thanks for helping out a paranoid Momma!
