Here is the breakdown pretty much. 60% of the people who cruise will cruise again and are hooked: 20% say cruising is a great way to vacation but there are a lot of other choices and the other 20% say it isn't for them. I will add, it normally is considered about the least expensive way to have a nice vacation.

I'd agree with that. My upcoming Pacific Coast 7 night cruise on RC Explorer of the Seas was $2900 including tips... for an oceanview balcony with 3 guests.

$138 a day per person... not unreasonable by any means. I doubt I could find a quality hotel anywhere that included 3 meals a day for that price.

I am rather confused by your terms.
Of course a balcony has an oceanview, but and oceanview with a window (obstructed or not) does not have a balcony.
Just saying.

Actually, RCCL's Oasis of the Seas has interior balconies that aren't oceanview.
