Default Cabins w/ windows that open?

Hello,
My husband and I love to cruise, but we must have fresh air in our room. We stayed in a balcony suite on Carnival Paradise and of course we prefer a balcony, but it's not always in our budget.

Are there any cruise lines that offer ocean view rooms with a window that actually opens? It's my understanding that these windows are usually sealed shut.

Thanks for your help.

There are some cabins that are classified as Cat 5 between a Balcony and an outside view that have French Doors that open that has an totally obstructed view but you do have the fresh air. This is on the Spirit Class ships on CCL. Not sure about other cruiselines. Hal has the same type ship so they probably have that option as well. Understand a regular outside cabin has windows that are not capable of opening on most cruiseships. Smaller ships like coastal or river ships might.

Jim, I head from a Carnival rep that they now have sealed the French doors (I almost booked one of these at the last minute on the Pride earlier this month). She said it was because they were affecting the A/C system (the Spirit class has that auto shutoff when you open the doors).

Don't know if this is the case ... maybe someone who recently had a French door will let us know.

Hi Harry, I hadn't heard that. I would be very interested in hearing from anyone who has been in one of these cabins recently and can confirm or deny this for us. Anyone?
