Hi, Amanda ...
There is no better way to go to sleep than the gentle rocking of the ship.
I'm not the right one to ask about claustrophobia. If I were in an inside, I would have to sleep with the door open, which would undoubtedly cause great consternation among staff and other passengers.
The air conditioning is excellent, so stuffy is not a problem.
Most insides are decorated in light, bright colors and there will be (fake) curtains to make you feel as though you are not inside unless you decide to look out.
What a wonderful choice for a first cruise !!!
If we can add anything else to your anticpation, just ask.
