Pleasantly surprised that we had such a good view from our stateroom as it was described as being fully obstructed. The lifeboat outside was situated below window so we had a really good view apart from not being able to see the sea below but that didn't bother us.
The stateroom could have done with a larger closet so consequently, i had to leave some clothes in my suitcase but that fitted nicely under the bed so wasn't a problem.
Nice hot water in the shower.
Hallway did become quite noisy second week of holiday due to children being able to run freely not being supervised by their parents properly. Read entire member review.
E325 whilst having a restricted view is well placed adjacent to the low part of the lifeboat so the restriction is not much at all.However is quite noisy from ships plant.
E516 again restricted view not too bad but you can clearly hear the band from Explorers lounge the deck below. Read entire member review.
Our "obstructed" ocean view stateroom E326 on Emerald Deck 8 was just fine! Actually, just over the lifeboat we had a rather good ocean view. The bathroom and adjacent closet seemed much smaller than we have experienced with balcony staterooms, but were entirely adequate. There was little or no noise from adjacent staterooms, and our location near the forward elevators and stairway was convenient. The middle elevators are NOT accompanied by a public stairway making for a VERY inconvenient situation - if one wants to take the stairs. Read entire member review.
