The cabin had a view of a lifeboat and no balcony (of course) so no way to get fresh air, which I missed (air conditioning worked okay but most of the time I kept it on cool). It was located directly opposite the elevator lobby but we didn't experience any noise from there at night, nor did we hear the door to the outside on the Promenade Deck, 7, below us, at night. Our cabin was "squeaky," especially on the first night out of San Francisco, so we made sure to try to alleviate any sources of vibrations before we went to bed at night (including putting cardboard shivs in the paneling where it connects to the wall, tying open the bathroom door, making sure glasses weren't touching each other, etc.) It wasn't much of a problem after the first night.

This cabin has practically no obstruction. You can see right over the top of a life boat from a large window. Being slightly forward in the ship was not an issue, and the room was quiet with a comfortable bed. Drawer storage is limited but there were lots of hangers in the medium sized closet. Read Less

We booked 3 weeks before so there were not a lot of options. We got an obstructed view cabin. We were pleasantly surprised! Not much of an obstruction at all. Bed was really comfy and cabin was spacious especially with the deep windowsill. Shower had good pressure and temp. control. Would definitely book this cabin category again. Read Less

We really enjoyed our cabin. A lot of people insist on getting a balcony cabin on an Alaskan cruise. However, we didn’t feel like spending that much money, and we like to walk a lot. So, we originally booked a comparably cheap inside cabin. Then, the prices dropped on outside cabins; specially “obstructed view” cabins. We had the choice of two, and upon selecting one, discovered, based on the ship diagram, it was between two lifeboats. The diagram was true to the ship itself, so E231 had a nice view, actually. I definitely recommend at least getting a room with some type of view. As I was getting ready one evening, I saw a whale outside the window. The bed was a queen sized bed. The room was very clean and comfy. Bed had a duvet, four fluffy sturdy pillows. There were 2 nightstands with 2 drawers and a shelf on each. A lamp was on each, but not a “reading light.” There was only one closet, with no door. It had space on the floor for shoes. There was a narrow closet with six shelves and a safe. So, not quite as much storage space as some ships I’ve been on, but it worked fine for us, because we brought a limited amount of stuff and did two loads of laundry. There is a vanity by the bed, with a phone and hairdrier and three small drawers. There are only 2 plugs . There was a chair at the desk and a cushioned chair by the window. The bathroom was nice, and tiled. It wasn’t super fancy. The shower was small, like a typical cruise room shower. Carpeting was in good, clean condition. The room seemed a tiny bit dated to me. There is a flat screen television with movies and shows; of course, “The Love Boat.” The room has a frig, a small glass table and heavy curtains. Water in the shower was either too cool or a bit too hot, and there was good pressure. There’s a small sink with three glass shelves. As far as the view, there was a boat a few feet to the right of the window and another about 6 feet to the left. There were a couple of thin metal posts and cables, but you could still see a lot. It was a very quiet room, with the exception of some of the time when we were in port and they were doing work around the lifeboats. Really be sure to check the diagram and look at the ship pictures before booking an “OW” cabin. Some of them are actually just above the walkway. This one was not, but a couple of times, workers were outside of it on the scaffolding. Read Less
