I know this as slowed down a bit, but I thought I jump in.
We sailed a few cruises with oceanview, but on one 11 day Southern Carribean cruise, they offered us a Balcony for only a an extra few bucks, so we jumped on it and never went backi.
Then we tried a CC on a TA - our daughter was with us and the room was a but larger. We loved CC. Excellent room support and all the little extas. At the Cove Cafe, we would get snacks with our special coffess when they saw our CC card.
So I watch the cost difference between a CC and a normal Balcony, and if it's not a big deal, I go CC.
