Default New Cabin category created on Solstice

Celebrity has created a new veranda cabin category on Solstice. Cat. 7 is on the Continental deck and apparently involves cabins with an obstructed view...

An obstructed view is better than no view.

Unfortunately, "obstructed view" usually means that you have a close-up view of the side of a lifeboat or some piece of machinery that's situated in front of the window.

It's unusual for "obstucted view" cabins to have verandas, though!

Does anyone know how much the "family staterooms" on Solstice sell for? These are the ones with a tiny obstructed balcony, but a nice added half-bath and an extra-large seating area.

I don't know if our stateroom would be considered one in the "obstructed view category" but here is a photo of the view looking down from our veranda:

We did see other staterooms on our deck, where the view from the veranda would be the tops of the lifeboats:
