We like the advantage of the balcony for perhaps having a leisurely breakfast; a quiet sun bathing session plus nice to look out at the stars at night...........

It depends on your trip and the time of year. Even in September crossing the Altantic you couldnt sit out, though it was nice to brave the elements occasionally and have a bracing 'breather' but you could do that on deck anyway. I should imagine it would be very differnet n the hieght of summer in the Med!

Call me what you will but I would find a inside cabin totally claustrophobic and would certainly pay more to be in even a cabin with a porthole but that is a personal viewpoint. I am sure that there are those who will say that you spend so little time in a cabin that it doesn't matter, I'm definitely not one of those. ......Ida.

Worth remembering that more often than not you can have two cruise holidays in a inner cabin for the price of one holiday with a balcony.......One 7 night holiday with a balcony or a 7 night and 5 night holiday in a inner cabin.

Have often cruised in inside cabins. Its all down to personal preference. Disadvantages: not knowing how to dress when you get up in the morning weather wise(however,you can usually get a view on the incabin Tv of the outside but its not the same). If you do go for an inside try to get one near to an open deck, so its not too far to trek back to change. Advantages, price, nice and dark for sleeping.

Yes if you can afford it.

We did an 'ocean view' (i.e. window) cabin for our first cruise and were very happy with it - we'd never do inside cabins as we can't bear not being able to see daylight. We thought we'd never bother paying any more, but were upgraded to a balcony (free of charge) for our second cruise and were totally hooked - being able to get fresh air made it worth it for us in future, but being able to have breakfast and lunch there when we wanted, or just sit and watch the ocean go by was magic. We did a transatlantic voyage last April, during which we were at sea for five days in a row at one point and were very grateful of our floor-to-ceiling windows and balcony then.

We always said we'd not pay for an outside cabin until we got upgraded to one, and I'd never have an inside cabin again. The only downside is going to bed with the moonlight shining in through your window and waking up with a group of burly dockers looking in!

Amazed by Symphony Part 1

By Anne Eaves

Anne Eaves's blog

My husband and i have recently returned from a cruise on Symphony of the Seas to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary and without a doubt it was one of the best cruises we have done. We arrived in Barcelona on 27th April and had one night at the Onix Liceo Hotel which is centrally located about half way down Las Ramblas on a side street, and is a great location for a pre cruise stay if you are looking for something central.We took a taxi to the port the following morning where the check i...
