Yes. Usually a lifeboat. It can be totally obsturcted or partially obstructed depending on the lifeboat position.

Hi lorie ann,

Yes, as Irish Shark said, the lifeboat will be right outside your window!

Here's the link to the location on HAL's website:


It looks like you'll get sunlight, but won't be able to see much , (unless you like looking at lifeboats)!

Have a great cruise, anyway!

A friend had one of those cabins on a recent cruise that we were on and yes your view is obstructed. There was a bit of light coming into the room when the sun was on that side, but otherwise there's very little light. She didn't want to pay a lot of money for the cruise and that's why she chose a GG cabin which is much cheaper than the others.

It's almost like an inside cabin, but with a window and some light.

Enjoy your cruise.
