mgades-If you don't mind a nice motel room-you will have absolutely no problem with a beautiful balcony stateroom on any ship! They are bright,cheerful,airy and quite roomy! You will absolutely love it!! Don't be surprised to find yourself booking another cruise while you are aboard!
I used to suffer with clasterphobia (sp?) a bit myself and have slowly overcame it, or atleast I think I am. I too wondered about being on the ship and not having a "way off of it". That's my fear with airplanes as well. I did post a thread about being scared and was very reassured that you just basically feel like you are on a big resort.....so enjoy. You'll have a great time I'm sure!!!
my wife is very clasterphoic we had a balcony suite on our last cruise she really loved it sat our there alot no problems, there is so much room on a cruise ship to move around. my wife thought she would be affraid to be at sea for a couple of days and not be able to get off but no problems like i said. the airplane rides are a little harder for her.
I am claustrophobic as well (extreamly) and my husband and I have been on three cruises. Our first was on the Holiday, which is Carnival's smallest ship. I was fine, even in the hallways. I didn't use the elavators, I always used the stairs. Sometimes it can be a workout using the staris, but it's worth it if it is more calming to you. Carnival has bigger rooms than any other cruise line, and since you have a balcony, I think you will do fine. We have always had "just" an Ocean View Room and that was enough to make me feel like I wasn't so closed in. Good luck and happy sailing. I'm sure you will do just GREAT!

Cheffy, I do believe you are wrong. I thought we were referring to someone that is worried about chromosome damage, thus "Clasterphobic" as per the definition below.
Clastogenic (kl?s't?-j?n'?k) effects are damages to chromosomes, such as breaks in or change in the of amount of proteins.
I love my proteins, any change in the amount of proteins I consume is a 'fearful" thought. Yes, I love animal protein: beef, pork, lamb, fish, veal, duck, chicken, all seafood, all crustaceans, even bunny rabbits. I guess I am petaphobic!
