Sorry - yes, it's an inside cabin.
The hc cabins each had an automatic door as an entrance to the cabin. Instead of inserting your key into a slot on the door, you insert it into a slot on a box mounted to the wall beside the cabin door. When you remove the key, the door opens automatically. There is also a button beside the bathroom door that can be used to automatically open the door when exiting the room. (You can see that blue button in the picture below. It is partially hidden by the curtain.)
The cabin also has an emergency button in the bathroom and beside the bed. One morning after our wake-up call, I was fumbling around for the light switch and I accidentally hit the emergency button by the bed.
Well, I was only half awake and couldn't figure out what to do next. Fortunately, Guest Relations called right away and told me how to shut it off.
Once we figured out what routes to take, getting around the ship was a breeze. The cabin is located near the forward elevators. In the morning and evening when the cabin stewards had their carts in the hallway, it was impossible to get through on our deck. But, if we took the elevator to deck 5 or 6 or 11, we could get anywhere we needed to go. It might require getting on the midship elevators afterwards, but we could get there.
We loved this cabin and really enjoyed the ship and the cruise.
