Unless you are going to spring for a Balcony, the only difference between an inside and an oceanview is the light coming through the window. Bring a wall plug night light or leave the bathroom light on and your money ahead. Unless you plan on spending a lot of time in you cabin, save the money. If you are the person that plans on sitting on their balcony alot, then get a Balcony. But there are more entertaining things to be doing on a cruise then sitting in your cabin.
