Trust your instinct. What is good for you may not be for others. We just got off the 2/3 sailing and booked the 6 person cabana (3 couples) for the last sea day. Cost was $300. The day ended up being overcast and some rain / sun mix. It was also very windy and by afternoon, they brought us warm blankets and coffee. Sitting outside, under cover (shade) with a view of the ocean, cannot be all the bad. This is a cruise people. Everyone has different reasons for being on board and for some, relaxing in an area like this, with a view of the ocean, beats the hell out of -13 degrees back home or being in an office. Enjoy your cruise!
