Default inside room or OV

This is my first cruise on Carnival sailing on the Glory.The question is should spend the extra money to have OV which would be on deck 1 in the middle or inside aft only can get back of the ship for inside due to the fact that I need two rooms together a double and triple.
Thanks for any advise

A room with any outside view is nice and it is pleasant to have the sun shine in occasionally. If you don't need that then inside room is nice as well. It seems that the majority of seasoned cruisers seem to recommend mid-ship for first time cruisers since you don't know if you get seasick or not and there's less movement there.

Life is too short to let the ship of your dreams sail without you.

For me it all depends on the price difference. One cruise it was only $20 more to go with an OV. For my upcoming cruise it was $200 so I booked an inside guaranty.

I would go for the ocean-view midships cabin.
There is a drawback to the inside aft cabin. Engine noise and vibrations. Especially when they use the thrusters
