If you are in cabin 8022, you will still have a view between the lifeboat and a platform. The cabin is very large with lots of storage in the drawers and the closets. You have a full bathtub with plenty of storage under the sink and over the toilet.
The Crown is an older ship built for longer cruises and transAtlantic crossings. There is only one main dining room. Some of the alternative restaurants are quite small. It is an easy ship to get around -- you will not get lost! Smoking can be a problem in the casino and the adjoining lounge since they abut each other.
Hope this helps.
