I think the windows are an example of where both physical miniatures and CGI models failed to sell the reality of the Enterprise-D. "Frosted white rectangles" don't look like windows to me.
Indeed - just as on the original TOS model of the Enterprise, they simply look like little featureless lights and not a thing like windows.

The windows on the JJPrise look like windows.
We reach.

By the way, Polaris is awesome. I'm both amazed and envious. You must write about your experiences one day!
If/when the TNG-R series becomes a reality, I would enjoy at least 1 beauty pass of the Enterprise D wherein those 'white rectangles' have people and rooms in them, moving around - not just in the observation lounge (where there always seems to be someone walking around....). Bonus if there are at least 2 versions of the beauty pass with different rooms lit up and different people walking around.
