I will be on the 8th deck on the Sovereign of the Seas and was told my oceanview room has a 25% obstructed view. I asked what the obstruction was and was told it is a lifeboat. Can anyone tell me if I would still be able to see the ocean or any view outside of my window with a 25% obstruction?
If there is a 25% obstruction, then there is 75% with no obstruction. So I would say, yes, you will be able to something.
SS Norway (12 times) '85 - '97; Radiance OS 06/01; Island Princess 11/04, Grand Princess 11/04/05, Golden Princess 7/21/06, Golden Princess 2/24/07, Explorer of the Seas 12/23/07, Island Princess 11/15/08
From looking at the deck plans on the RCI website, I'd say you'll be looking at the very top of the life boat. It says that decks 7 & 8 have obstructed views, so I'd "guess" that deck 7 has the main view of the lifeboats.
This is just a guess. Hopefully, someone who's been in one of the deck 8 cabins can tell you more.
Have a wonderful cruise!
