Default Monarch of the Seas, Cat I or F3

So, I am going to be taking a theme cruise in October on Monarch. Its only 3 nights so I'm trying to decide if I really want to pay $56 more for an F3 compared to an I (Obstructed). That's $56 for the cabin, not per person. My biggest issue is that I need natural light to help wake up in the morning, and was wondering just how much the lifeboats would obstruct this. Anyone by chance have any pics?

If you need natural light, you'll still get it with an obstructed view. Don't spend more than you have to on this cruise. It's great but only at a good price, we've taken it twice and are going a third time this April

Yeah, already talked to the TA and going for a Cat I. With a list of about 6 or so of the "less obstructed" as cabin requests. Its a GLBT Themed group deal, so the price is a little higher than just booking, but it includes some perks, including a private party on Coco Cay. And $50 OBC, which is kind of nice.
