If you already booked THAT cabin, and you feel you must have a view of the water, you only have 2 choices- 1) call them back and pay for the "upgrade" to an unobstructed view or 2)call them and change your reservation to a TBA (To be Assigned) or Guarantee cabin which means you are confirmed to have at least the obstructed view you already have or the may upgrade you to a better view. Since you did not say when you were cruising I can't really say if either option would be available to you since you may be too close to your sail date for them to make a booking change without a penalty (paying for the upgrade probably would not include a last minute change charge.

The obstructed view will still allow light into the window, but if you feel you must also be able to see the view, you should try for the upgrade.

I agree with the post from Jim. I have seen these cabins and your view will one of two things: the top or bottom of the lifeboats. To Jim's point, call CCL and see of you can modify your cabin selection. I would go for the Guarantee. That will afford you a decent upgrade, since most cabins are balcony anyway.
On a happier note, this ship is beautiful. Having sailed on her sister ships (Legend and Miracle), you are in for a treat!! Don't miss the Supper Club; the best $25pp you will spend. Have a great cruise. Hope the info helps.
