Has anyone ever been on a Carnival ship in an oceanview obstructed cabin with a French door instead of a window? I'm almost afraid to ask because if it's bad, it's too late —*we're already booked. But basically we paid the same price as an interior room and got this one, so I thought it would be at least nice to have some daylight... We were in an oceanview obstructed on Princess with a lifeboat in front of our window, which didn't bother me, but now I'm starting to wonder about having a door without a balcony, etc.

What are your thoughts? And how far does the door actually open?

Thanks!
Cortney

Do you have the ship's name and your stateroom number?

We have had Oceanview/obstructed. It is just like having a large window that you can open. There are railings across the door open for safety. You have a limited viewing area but that's much better than being inside. It's really nice to have daylight and fresh air. We were glad to be upgraded to this room. Happy sailing.

Thanks for the replies. I can't seem to find the sheet with the room number on it right now but I will try to find it. The ship is the Carnival Miracle.

Oh well, I guess it's still better than an inside cabin, right?

Thanks for the help guys!

We did an obstructed view on Legend last year. Love the room and love the French Doors. Although we rarely opened them, we could and get some fresh air. But it was really nice having the windows and ability to open them. Also since they are french doors they are large. Having the life boat outside is no big deal, it actually serves to block the sun and give a little more darkness in the morning. But all-in-all it is worthwhile having the windows and doors.
Now for the bad news. We were above the Piano Bar. You better like the music. You may want to check the deck below yours and see where your cabin is in relation to the bars. If you are over a bar you may be able to change to a quieter area. It really didn't bother us as my wife and I really enjoyed the Piano Bar and simply spent the end of the evenings down there singing, drinking, and having fun. And when we didn't go down, we put in ear plugs and it really was no big deal. But if you look at the deck plans you can get a feel for what you are over. Probably not a big deal unless you go to bed really early and are over a bar where there is lots of music.
