Well, it is true that it would be nice to have a place to just sit and watch the scenery. I know inside cabins are my last choice due to motion sickness(I get sea sick for some odd reason, but never get any other kind of motion sickness.....may just need to get my sea legs). I did consider getting a mini-suite or suite but I will not do that unless I knew I had a way to afford it. I like having my space. If I am unable to find a cabin mate though, I will have to be a lot more careful with my money so I have to think about that as well. I am always welcome to suggestions but please do watch the tone.
