We had an interior room after having balconies before. We just wanted the least expensive option. And although I did miss the balcony some, overall our room was nice, comfortable, clean and met our needs. We really did not spend much time there anyway. We have cruised before and we knew the bathrooms were small so that was expected. We did have a room next to one with bunks and it took us several nights to figure out that the large thumps we were hearing was people jumping down from their beds. But that didn't really bother us and I would do an interior room again if I am on a budget or haven our children withnus.
