I booked a Promenade cabin recently; actually they are not the cheapest, they are the most expensive inside cabin. On the cruise date I'm booked on, (Nov. 4), there's a waiting list for these cabins. They have a window seat where you can sit and watch the parades, or just people-watch, etc. You are looking down 2 stories. You would have to keep your curtains closed when you want privacy, as you can been seen from the windows across the way.
