Congratulations on your honeymoon. Now you'll have to take a cruise for each anniversary. It looks to be an obstructed view balcony cabin with life boats out there. Your cabin is in a corner so you might be able to see a little. You are between passenger cabins so that is nice. Let us know how it was.

Yes the cat 7A is sold as obstructed view but I just posted in another thread about this, its not bad at all! The obstruction is the lifeboats which are -below- your cabin! So from what my PVP has told me, you actually have a good view unless you are looking down. As far as looking straight out, you shouldn't have any major obstruction. This category is a great way to get a discount on a balcony cabin =) hope you have a fantastic cruise and terrific honeymoon!

Oh man, you are gonna be so sad/mad.
In fact, don't even go!!!

You should donate your tickets.

The cabin is for the 4 S's....Have a ball.
Peace through superior firepower.
