I don't carry a purse on the ship. I carry my key card and Kleenex in my pockets. Off ship, I carry a small wallet in my pocket and one of the older HAL canvas bags with water and other essentials.

As far as I know, all mini suites have a balcony and thus an ocean view, I have never heard of one that did not. Check the deck plans. Some of them are not covered - Dolphin deck.
