Heading to CSS October 21-25 2010 with 2 other couples and we are having trouble selecting a room category. We want a large balcony with unobstructed views of the water to have coffee in the morning and maybe drinks in the evening. My travel agent is checking to see if we can get a penthouse, but if they are available Apple is making us pay for it right now to confirm. I would like to hear from others who have stayed in them. Thanks for any info!
