Hi, my mom and I have a french door/obstructed view cabin on the Spirit(May 3 Honolulu to Vancouver). I was wondering HOW obstructed are these views and if anyone has an idea as to the noise level on Main Deck cabin 4117. Thanks!
We did not stay in these cabins but they looked pretty obstructed from the deck below. They do not appear to have a balcony but they do have doors that open to let in the fresh air. If you have the chance to upgrade the balcony rooms are great. On this ship from the handrail down is all glass and you can sit and watch the islands and wave pass by. Many balcony styled ships are closed in below the handrail meaning that if you want a view you have to stay standing.
We were on the Spirit in Novembet 2001. Orginially booked a 5A and upgraded to 8D, then was graciously given an 8I (lg. bal). Went into one of the cabins in 5A. Loved the look of the french doors. But as the post above says....you face a lifeboat directly in front of you and NO balcony. Yes, the fresh air is nice, but be warned......crew workers are always working on those lifeboats and doing drills. So they can look right into your room. I wouldn't go away and leave the french doors opened or unlocked. Just a word of caution.
We just returned from the Spirit.We had Cat 5a cabin 4122.We were between life boats so we could at least look out and see the water,not much else.We paid less than the original quote for an inside so we were okay with it.The fresh air is nice and it is nice to wake up to some light in the a.m.Any other questions,feel free to ask....Judie
