"I laugh at the posts where people tell first timers that they only sleep in their cabin so it doesn't matter where it is or how small it is. That's just not true. "
I have to respectfully disagree. I've only been on two cruises, one inside cabin and one with a window, but I spent very little time in my cabin. And when I was in there, it was for mainly sleeping/napping, showering, etc. and I found the cabins to be adequate. Maybe when you've cruised a lot more, the novelty wears off and you spend more time in your room relaxing? I think if everybody had the choice, they would choose a suite, but if people are on a tighter budger, I don't think a smaller cabin diminishes the cruise experience.
