Balcony (obstructed views) Cabin Reviews
May 2017
We had an "obstructed view", but it was only obstructed in that we couldn't look straight down the side of the ship for there was a lifeboat, but had a perfectly open view to the ocean and coming back to the shore. Would LOVE to have this room again!

Cabin 5241

Pleanty of room as this room was larger because the balcony was longer, even though there were lifeboats obstructing the view, which we knew in advance. We paid $200 more than our friends who had a regular balcony room on Deck 5 and it was a lot smaller than our room, but in mid deck. I think there were only 4 of these types of room on Deck 5, two on each side of the ship.

My up graded cabin, an outside Obstructed life boat room was very nice with a sliding door railing access to fresh ocean air, CA. & AK. views! It was nice to wake up on a king size bed to an ocean view!

Mexican Riviera Miracle By: crAZytwinmomma
For 5 people we had 2 cabins. Plenty of room. We had the crew open the screen to connect the two balconies. Deck 5 was the same floor as camp carnival. Felt very little movement at all when in the cabin. Only downside was that you could feel the vibration of the engine a bit.

Cabin 5237
Apr 2016
Our family of 4 with 2 adults and 2 children (ages 4 and 7) shared an obstructed view balcony cabin (5237). The cabin itself was a standard carnival cabin, which is a good thing. They are big, have lots of storage and are well laid out, even for a family of 4. The bathroom was good sized, with great water pressure in the shower. Our stateroom was in poor condition. There were nicks and scratches all over the wood trim, scuffs on the ceiling and burnt light bulbs that were never replaced. Our cabin steward didn't help our impression of the cabin. On our first day, I noticed some cheerios under the desk that were still there on the last day! Our cabin steward was friendly the two times we saw him during our cruise, but he seemed to do the bare minimum possible. My kids got the floor sandy after our day in Cabo and it was still there 2 days later.

If you can afford a room with a balcony, I would highly recommend it. It was worth the extra money. Also we were on Deck 5 I think. It was helpful to be lower in the ship on days/nights when it was rocky.

Cabin 5236

Partially obstructed 7A with a very long balcony. The lifeboats are below the balcony, so they only block your view looking down. This would be a great balcony in the Caribbean or Mexican Riviera, it come with 2 chairs and a recliner.

Good size room. The room is partially blocked by the first tender on the port side almost mid ship. Interesting to see how they launch and recover the tender just outside our balcony. Plenty of storage space and especially like to be able to store our large full size luggage under the bed.

A Bad Rap By: ny cruisequeen
Huge amount of storage space, very very quiet room. Lifeboat obstruction is completely below balcony railing so view is completely open with no blockage to jar view of the ocean or ports as you pull into or out of towns. Loved the magnifying mirror in bathroom. Bathrobes provided are large, warm, thick and cozy, and the toothpaste was surprise.... nice touches!

Cabin 5151. Obstructed balcony. Can see between the lifeboats, so can see down to the water somewhat. Cabin is a standard balcony with nothing different from a regular cabin except for the lifeboats.

Carnival Miracle....NOT By: Mrsdstewart
We had a suite with an obstructed view (top side of the emergency boats). Though not that bad, next I will reserve a balcony suite without the obstructed view.

Good Time on the Miracle By: Bekster87
Obstructed view exactly what were expecting. Roomy enough in the cabin with ample storage space. Carpet stains here and there and mattress was "adequate" but not really comfortable. We were very satisfied witht he accomodations.

This was an obstructed view cabin - we knew that the live boats would limit downward view and were satisfied with what we paid vs what we got. Overall room was good with very good room service.

Cabin 5190
Mar 2012
We had an obstructed view balcony (room 5190) it was fine. We were leery at first but found that it suited our needs. The obstruction was not that bad life boat comes to the floor of the balcony and in this room you can see to the water looking down in the left hand side other then that you can clearly look out. The room itself was nice a standard balcony room bed was comfortable, linens were always clean and the pillows were just fine. The stewards kept the room clean and we would actually recommend the obstructed view to anyone who does not mind or wants to save a couple of bucks. We are booking the same room on our next cruise. I would rather have a massage then spend more money on an unobstructed view.

2 day cruise to relaxation! By: CruzLuverFromCT
Like the closet full of shelves, better than drawers. Bathroom was well lit, would like to see an outlet in there for 110. (night light would be nice) Close to elevators, but not too noisy. Those elevators drop us right to the dining room. Nice. Don't mind seeing the lifeboats up close, but they do collect cigarette butts and debris from above, not a great site.

Reduced price for an obstructed view balcony made it possible for us to have. Mattress was not the most comfortable.

Miracle - It was GREAT!! By: crazydaisy90
Great location mid-ship, limited obstructed view, could see out, not down, small balcony, balcony doors slam which can be heard way down the way if there are kids in the area.
