My budget requires interior cabins (I'd prefer more cruises as low cost than fewer luxury cruises.)

I've seen a couple of cruises where the ocean view cabins were cheaper than the interior ones. Any idea what that's about?

I was recently offered an upgrade to a completely obstructed ocean "view" cabin on a HAL cruise. I turned it down because it was much further forward than my original mid-ship interior cabin.

I would love to hear people's thoughts and experiences on this.

Sometimes, pricing can't be explained! If you see an OV for less than an interior, grab it! I'd rather be more forward with some view, than midship in an interior cabin, if pricing is the same or better for the OV!
