The stateroom was called a Jr. Suite and it was not a suite by any stretch of the imagination, and had less storage than a regular stateroom on Princess, or Royal Caribbean and that's not saying much. It did have a shower that was a little larger than usual (I could wash my feet without sticking any part of me out of the shower.) But the room was tiny. The balcony was more of a Juliet balcony. You really had to squeeze to get past the chairs...regular chairs, not reclining deck chairs. To sit in the chairs, you had to turn them sideways. You could have fit one reclining deck chair if you put it sideways and didn't need to walk past it, that would have been the size of the whole deck. They didn't classify this an obstructed view, but there was a big boom kind of thing that did obstruct the view.
We had originally booked an ocean view room but were offered a great deal on an upgrade to a jr. suite so we took it. I was completely shocked to find that people could see directly into our room. We were the second suite from the aft end and there's an observation deck that juts out to the side. Anyone standing on the observation deck has full view of the balcony and partial view of the inside of the cabin. Are you kidding me??? I was laying in bed reading and made eye contact with a guy on the observation deck. Because of this we were unable to enjoy our room with the curtains open and the balcony was just like being on the pool deck in full view of anyone. If I'd paid full price for this cabin I would have been livid. I would avoid V3 at all costs.
