Yes we agree.
Have been on her 4 times, always in a balcony, aft on A deck.
Only ever had sea view cabins on Oriana.
This cruise that we are booked on may be a bit windy and chilly which is why we opted for sea view.
Was concerned from the outset about the location that we had agreed to, which was A309, no brainer after your post, to cancel and re book.
As I said staggering reduction.
The deal changer for us was the closed curtain requirement for privacy.
Not for us!
So again thank you.
