Does anyone know if there is any real difference in square footage between Category B - In Hull vs. Category A - balcony cabins? Trying to decide here

Also, for those who have sailed in the In-Hull Cabins, do have problems with spray coming up and is it too dark to sunbath?

There is an overall square footage difference in the cabins but I believe most of that is due to the balconies. The A balconies are actually listed as smaller than the B in hull by about 20 sqft. The in-hulls are darker and do not let in as much light so if you are hoping to do any sunbathing on your balcony you should book an A category.

Nina, I have a question about the obstructed balcony cabins. How obstructed are they? Is it completely viewless or if you peak around, can you see a little? I'm often told they are the best value on the ship and, I'm curious of your opinion of these cabins.

There are off course pros and cons to these cabins Clover,

Pros:

You get the extra space, most of the light and sea breezes of a balcony at a reduced cost. You can view the sky and down to the water and possibly a full view in ports if the lifeboat is being used for tendering. Some cabins have "peak around somewhat" views or narrow views between two boats (such as cabin 8058)

Cons:

You are staring at a lifeboat, (It's not like it is touch the rail, more like several feet away, but it is there!) ...you don't have a full view

That is all I can think of at the moment. You will have to decide what is most important to you in a cabin. Personally, if the choice was between oceanview or obstructed balcony I would chose the balcony hands down!

4 leaf - I'd go for an obstructed over an ocean view in a heartbeat! You might be looking at lifeboat but, you get that much extra space!

Clover,

I've been doing some searching around and found some pictures for you. Since you would be booking so far out there is a very good chance of getting a cabin like this!
