Although view was obstructed, we had a good view and have determined the location with its proximity to elevators and only one flight above the promenade deck was superb. We seemed to have easy access to nearly all the things we wanted to do - which largely consisted of standing on deck and gaping at the fantastic scenery! I booked late and selection was slim. As it turns out we were quite pleased with cabin E311 - if / when we return to Island Princess I will book it or its starboard counterpart.

Prior to booking this room, I checked the deck plan and it appeared this room's window would be between a lifeboat and an extension of the outside wall. In other words, it seemed there would be a gap which would afford us at least some view. I was correct.
We could easily see what the weather was like outside and enjoy some of the scenery passing by.
The room was large enough for my wife, 28 month-old daughter and myself. We utilized one of the drop down bunk beds. However, I found the beds less than completely comfortable after a few hours (I have lower back issues) and was frustrated by blankets that were too short. I am just over six feet tall and my toes would protrude.
Plenty of storage, but the shower in the bathroom was probably the smallest I've experienced on a cruise ship. It was difficult not to get water on the floor since the shower curtain was a bit short and would seem to get sucked inward from the vacuum created by the shower spray.
Our room attendant did a fantastic job of keeping our room neat and tidy.
