Inside vs outside cabin

Jump to last reply

I would like to hear from others about the difference, if you've been to both.

On my very first cruise, I had a porthole, and was happy with it. Felt, it was enough size-wise, and was happy to see the huge stars at night, waves, sun, etc...

For the next cruise, the prices make me go: OUCH! On the newer ships no portholes, and even obstructed view is expensive.

Is it bad to be in an inside cabin? Does it give you a feel of a closet or makes you claustrophobic? Is it really important to have a piece of glass connection with water :)

I'm thinking, it may be better to spend money on tours and other purchases from a cheaper cabin, no? I am used to budget travel.
