Default Carnival Miracle obstructed view balconies

Have any of you sailed on the Carnival Miracle in an obstructed view balcony cabin? (cat 7) How bad is the obstruction? Is it bad enough to upgrade to a higher cat 8 ?

Just curious? Trying to decide if I want to plan a cruise next year to Aruba The Miracle has some good prices in December 2011.

Thanks!
TC

Default Spirit Class cat 7

I had one of the cat 7 cabins. In my opinion the 7 is good only if you get it as a free upgrade from a 4 or 6.
If you want a balcony go for the 8.

I wasn't impressed by Aruba.

Thanks Scurvy, I figured the cat 7's were probably a waste of time, that's why they are cheaper I guess

But I haven't been there yet I am working on the bucket list baby

But really, I was looking at cruises in December, trying to find something good around Christmas or New Years when I saw this sailing of Carnival Miracle 8 days going to Aruba (among other places) and since Aruba is on the bucket list, I thought I'd check into it while we're on Carnival Splendor. Check to see about any discount offers for "future" bookings
