Smile oceanview cheaper

My wife and I booked a cruise to hawaii aboard the Sapphire Prince for next month. Today I was looking around cruisesonly web sit were we purchased are cruise and noticed the price for a balcony had drooped by $400 I understand the price dropping the closer the sailing dates get so they can fill the rooms what I dont understand is that an oceanview room is now more then a balcony and an inside room is almost as much as the balcony room. I was just curius as to why this was.

It is basically supply and demand. I would call your travel agent and see if you can move to a balcony, sounds like it won't cost next to nothing...Sure worth a call...
