Default Oasis class inside balcony cabins

Has anyone stayed on one of those balcony cabins that overlook Central Park or Boardwalk on the Oasis or Allure? If so, what are the advantages of them? I suppose its ok for people watching but cant see any other upsides other than they are cheaper than the ocean view balconies. Please chime in.

Yes, my SIL and I stayed in one overlooking Central Park. We enjoyed it but it certainly isn't the same as an oceanview. It still beat a real inside.

Keep in mind that your balcony faces the one directly across from you; very little to no privacy. Most folks in these cabins end up keeping there shades drawn for a large portion of time for this reason. Depending on the cost; I'd recommend an ocean facing balcony to really the use and experience.

However, if it's a choice between inside and inside balcony - the inside balcony at least gives you some additional space and a view. Just wouldn't expect the same privacy as provided through the ocean facing balconies.
