Default Partially obstructed view on Fantasy?

We are sailing on the Fantasy this Sunday and have a verandah suite that appears from pictures we've seen, to have a life boat blocking the balcony. Has anyone here sailed on the Fantasy class ships and had one of these rooms? How bad is the obstruction?
Any info would be appreciated so we aren't disappointed when we get there and can't see off our balcony.

I had a mini suite on the Verandah and didn't have an obstructed view. We actually had a beautiful view. Yes, there are lifeboats but they didn't block any views. I attached a picture that I took from my balcony going into Nassau.

Have a great time.

The only ones that have obstructed views are V27 and V42. If you can call it obstructed. The ship's rescue boat is just to the right of the balcony, if anything you have a slight obstruction on the right from seeing way out. There is also a small catwalk that is below railing level in front of it.

We had an obstructed view on a Verandah suite that we were upgraded to on the Paradise. You could still see the ocean, you can still enjoy the balcony, it's just not perfect. Check out pictures of our obstructed cabin on the Paradise at the link below.

We're in V25 and Carnival said that there is a life boat in front of our room they were just very vague on exactly what our view would be like.
Karen, I don't see your picture and Judy, I don't see your link.

Thanks everyone for the info, that eases the mind a bit, I know we'll have a great time.

3FOB5Paradise is 50% right. Yes, V42 and V27 have obstructed views, but V25 and V 38 also have them.

From what I hear there is a PARTIALLY obstructed view, but nothing too serious.
