Default Air quality for sleeping

I really like to sleep next to an open window at night. What is the quality of the air like in an inside cabin? I'm a bit worried about waking up with my lungs aching from a lack of fresh air. If the air is well circulated, I might be able to adjust. (unfortunately the cabns with a balcony are all sold out.) Thanks for your anwswers cruise buddies.

Honestly - the air can be fairly dry due to constant air conditioning. I suggest taking some saline nose spray along to keep your sinuses well lubricated.

I think one of the reason people can get sick on cruise ships is because their sinuses dry out and that makes it easier for a germ to penetrate your sinusoidal membrane.

Paul's reco is a good one. The nasal spray will help a lot. With my allergies, I like the A/C to filter the air but it does get pretty dry. I use the nasal spray and it helps.

I do not sleep with the windows open like you, but I do like the air moving in my room when I sleep. I pack a small personal fan in our baggage when we go on cruises. It is only 8" across and not very powerful, but having that little extra air hitting my face makes a big difference in sleeping comfort. I paid less than $20 for it at Wal-Mart. Make sure you buy a fan that folds flat so it is easy to pack.

The fan has gone with us on a couple Caribbean cruises and one on the A mazon. I slept great every night.
