Cabin was small with a window. The window is important to me. I've taken interior rooms in the past, but won't do that anymore at this stage of the game. Balcony is not that important to me, since balconies are small and I'd rather go up to the fifth floor deck if I really want to look at the ocean. I had no problems with the location of the cabin. My only "complaint" is really size of the shower. I am not a heavy guy, but even I had trouble moving around in that shower. I can imagine how uncomfortable it would be for somebody who's heavier.
