I have travelled widely but I am not an experienced cruise traveller, only having taken one to the Greek Isles about 12 years ago. I am taking a group trip to the Norwegian Fjords in August, I don't know anyone else going on the cruise and I tend to prefer my own room but that would be an interior room. To all those experienced cruisers out there: How much of a better experience will I have if I take a balcony room (and have to share with another group member, mainly because of the price)? Is it worth givinig up my own room to have a view and a balcony? Any help is appreciated - Thanks!
