Obstructed partial and full verandas are 2C and 2D and are all located on the continental deck.
Thanks jslinger1 we booked a gauranteed balcony on the Eclipse and was told that it may have an obstructed view, I just recieved my paper work and I'm in cabin 8282 so that makes me very happy.
Cheers, Frank

For the eclipse, the obstructed verandas are only on deck 6 because of the lifeboats underneath on deck 5. The lifeboats are "on the ceiling" on deck 5 so when you stand on a deck 6 balcony, you cannot see the water below.

The DW and I were on the Eclipse in March and snagged an exceptional rate for a guaranteed veranda. We were on deck 6 and had a lifeboat under us. It really was no big deal. Yes, we could not look down into the water, but we had a nice view above - enjoyed the sun and sky. I guess if you get a really great deal it is worth it to snag the deal, enjoy a drink on the verandah and look up.

Hi there,
We're thinking of booking 6156(hump) for Med cruise on the Solstice, Are the deck plans the same as the Eclipse, which was your cabin ? Had a look at Librarylady's cabin compilation and there were some issues for Eolipse's 6156. We'd like midship and mid level cabins less chances of being seasick and also convenient for either lift station.

Many thanks
