Thanks, Dave. I guess a better question would be can you still sit out on the balcony and enjoy a view of the horizon?
If it's a balcony cabin there will be a balcony to sit on. But give us your ship and cabin and I bet someone can give you a real good answer, Perhaps even a photo. I have an Obstructed View on the Miracle. I get to look out over a life boat. So the only obstruction is down. Should be just fine.
well I had never been on this situation but what is the deal??
the price difference is really worth the price??
I mean I always book a balcony cabin but from experience I always try to book one from the center of the ship without any obstructons, if you are going to pay for a balcony cabin you should enjoy the view and have no worries about it...
We have not booked a balcony yet. We are booked OV on Elation and I was thinking about upgrading to balcony since it is a 7 day cruise, I might like to have a balcony. Early booking has the obstructed view at about $300 less per person than a balcony w/o obstruction. I definitely don't want to pay higher than the early booking rate, but just didn't know how obstructed we were talking about. Thanks for any info given.
That sounds like a Fantasy Class Cat 11 Suite, the cabins at the back of Veranda have an obstructed view because there are rescue boats in front of them. I had a Cat 12 suite on the Holiday in a similar location with the rescue boat in front of me.
Is there any way to post pictures to this site so I can show them?
Yes, I believe you are right that they are on the back of Veranda. I would love to see the photos if you can figure out how to post. If the lifeboats are right in front of you, then I can't see paying the $700 extra for the week. Thanks again to everyone for the info.
I have a few shots from my balcony on the Holiday. I also have an old picture from the Fascination 6 years ago, that has a really good view of Veranda Deck of the Imagination as we were passing it in Miami
