I was a little worried at first with the description "Obstructed view" but the view from the cove is just fine. The lifeboats are over the balcony so you are offered some privacy plus you don't have to worry about rain if it is bad weather. You are close to the water, which makes it seem like you are on a smaller boat. There are chairs to sit in and a small table. I loved sitting out there in the early morning,drinking coffee. It also provides a quite place to relax and unwind. The room itself is pretty standard. Not overly roomy but big enough for two people. Plenty of places to put all the stuff you bring. The bathroom is small but functional. The cove was also very quiet and we did not feel much of the ships movement. I think there was only one night where we felt any rocking at all. Its a good room for people who might be prone or concerned about to seasickness. The only drawback is that you have to wait on elevators because they take a while to make to to the 2nd floor. But the coves are also just one floor below the MDRs so it is an easy walk. All and all, it is good value for the money.
