When you see those cheap Euro apartments with people decorating their balconies with bamboo and stuff, it does not have the sleek steel and glass look of a NYC modern condo.

Anyway, I see your point, and I won't call you selfish or narrow-minded or anything alse that people who don't agree with you might do...

I have never had a balcony, but as a person who had an inside cabin, with the top bunk I can say this: While on the actual ship, I never went outside of it and marvelled at what a wonderful configuration it was, because my experience ON the ship was inside of it, looking out. My first cruise was on one of those old style ships, but I think the newer ships are for the cruisers, not the ship afficianados who love the look of the old style ships. I can appreciate your loving the old styles (I do also) but I sure do appreciate the option of a balcony cabin.

There is a demand for the balconies, and it makes sense for the cruise lines to make their customers happy. That being said, Disney does have some more traditional elements.
