We are on the Vision of the Seas to Alaska next month. So of course we'd like to be able to at least see out of our porthole windows. Someone on another board told me the porthole window on the Rhapsody was like looking out of a telescope. Not good. Has anyone else had any experience with port holes? Could you see anything out of them? Unfortunately we booked an outside guarantee and were given a room with two portholes instead of a regular window. Any insight anyone can give us on this would be appreciated.

I've never had a porthole room, just one with a regular window but I've been in rooms that had portholes, they seem smaller and more closterphobic to me. Plus your lower on the boat, I like being higher up, you seem to feel the movement of the boat less. I'd spend the extra to at least get a window, you don't spend a ton of time in your room but the time you do spend should be pleasent plus you don't want to miss a whale sighting or something.
