We have done two insides and and one balcony cabin so far. Our next is an oceanview (because of the ship) and I wouldn't sail again without at least a window. I loved our balcony last time, getting back to the room after a long night out ordering a room service cup of tea and drinking it out on the balcony listening to the waves swoosh by. Or the time we were docked outside Civitavecchia (sp?) looking at the lights on the other ships waiting to enter port at first light. The balcony is worth every penny in my opinion.
What do you mean this isn't how they eat onboard?
