Balcony on cheap cruise versus inside on more expensive cruise

Jump to last reply

Considering another Caribbean cruise in Jan to Mar time frame. Itineraries are similar, departing from San Juan.
Ships are Carnival Liberty, RCL Adventure of the Seas and RCL Jewel of the Seas.
Carnival Liberty is offering balcony cabins at only a little more than ocean view or inside on the RCL ships.
Ship ratings are about the same, but from reading about them, there is quite a different vibe.
We have had only window or inside before, so no personal experience to go by.
Also, granddaughter, age 6, will be with us.
So, which would you guys go with, inside on RCL Adventure or Jewel or balcony on Carnival?
Showing my lack of knowledge - are balcony cabins safe for active kids? Of course, we adults watch her, but she is busy.
She will be with her Mom so I might feel guilty, but we could have a balcony and they could have an inside.

One other option: Royal Princess out of Miami. Itinerary is not as desirable and not sure how good it would be for kids, but the ship is newer and looks so beautiful, plus a couple of good offers, that is tempting.

Opinions, please.
