We have booked the corresponding cabin on the starboard side (8013) for a 2006 cruise, based partly on Ken's experience and because we wanted the view from the other side. We also studied the pictures and deck plans. I noticed the new Cunard deck plan shows the first two obstructed cabins on each side are B-6 and the remaining are B-5. Perhaps being further toward the bow is less desireable????. I think you would do well with 8013 or 8014 if they're available, and if you can put up with a little motion.
