I think the cabin was fine. Are they smaller than hotel rooms? Yes. Is there enough room? Yes. the Superior Outside rooms are about 25% larger. I do think that is important and if I was in a smaller cabin I think the difference would feel cramped. The view was fine. The life boats obstruct a view if you want to look down. Since the ocean view was looking out, I was not bothered at all. It would be tight on a longer cruise - small closets, small drawers/shelves, but for what is needed on a 3-nighter, it was fine. I'm a big guy, and the shower is tight, but usable.
