DW and I usually go for space and view. We have had several types of cabins, inside, outside , porthole, balcony. We like the upper decks and neither of us get sea sick so we usually go for deck 10, Midships, portside and Junior Suite. On the hump if we can get it.
Any cabin, any deck, any ship, any itinerary. I'll even help row!
Seriously, unless you have specific reasons for needing a certain type of cabin, they're all good in my book. We've even done bunkbed cabins!
Early on I loved to be on the main deck, close to the pursers area, to be close to the action. I do like to be close to an elevator, and have never had a higher noise level because of that.
I have had some aft cabins, and boy what a walk! My one corner aft was amazing...a family of four could have lived on the balcony An electric chair attached to the wall, for an easy ride, down the hallway would be a nice touch!

A shocking proposal to be sure, but I am sure the cruise lines could obtain a few from the states that have discontinued that form of capital punishment.
Marj, who has been prone to seasickness, likes mid-ship cabins, however for our upcoming cruise we are a little farther aft in a balcony cabin.

colorcrazie: once when DW and I were cruising with the kids we had a inside cabin with bunk beds. Two on each wall one upper one lower. One morning we all tried to get out of bed at the same time. What a collision that was.
the cheapest I can get and then hope for an upgrade. Doesn't matter where the location or type.
having said the above, I will add this. If the 7 day cruise has an equal number or greater sea days then port days and I have been to at least two ports of call before and the ship holds more than 1800, and my GF is willing to "contribute" to make up the difference between an outside and a balcony, I would opt for the balcony
