we are looking into cruising with Avalon 2010 and trying to decide a window room vs franch balcony.Can somebody help us decide.We just returned from a Budapest to Nuremberg with Lueftner/Gate 1 and the ship had french balconies on the upper level and sliding windows on the 2nd level, and porthole (non-opening) windows on the lowest level. Yes the french balcony window is bigger, but it only opens about a foot or so. Our 2nd level window opened about a foot as well, and it was very pleasant to leave it open at night as we cruised along, listening to the swish of the river going by was nice. Only the lowest level would have any issues of water coming up over the window
