That being said, I look for the most affordable cabin with my window. I prefer staterooms above, below and beside mine to make it a little quieter. This time I have a 5A on the Miracle with the french doors that open to an obstructed view. I had that before. I like it because I can smoke in the room and still get fresh air.
So, no inside unless that's all I can do, no balcony because I don't have the money. O/S is all that matters.
