A while ago there was a thread about the cabins on Deck 8 that were "E" cabins with little obstruction (8074,75, etc...). What about the "E" cabins on Deck 7 (Promenade Deck)? Some of those look like they might also be only moderately obstructed. Although I've been on the Symphony twice, I can't remember if I've ever looked at these cabins from a "view" standpoint. Also, what about cabins 7032-35? I don't see any obstruction outside there, and they are sandwiched between a bunch of Cat C cabins.
Best E cabins on Promenade deck midship are 7072,7073,7096 and 7097.
There is no obstruction at all. We have sail twice in 7072 and will do it again in June.
Next to the exit to the deck(your giant balcony) and a few steps from the midship stairs and the elevator.
Unless you travel 3 or 4 times a year and do your booking very late you can always find your favorite cabin. We like to help others get them the rest of the year.
The only way to see the lifeboat on 7072 is to look up and to the left corner of the window.
