These Oceanview Staterooms that have a porthole with an obstructed view, can accommodate up to four guests. Includes two lower beds that convert into a queen-size bed and additional bedding to sleep two more. And of course you'll have access to room service and tons of other great amenities on board.
Good location on the ship close to the stairs and elevators and also O'Sheehans bar on the same level where you can get all meals. Cabin was small and you were obstructed getting down each side of the bed by a pull down bed on one side and the desk on the other so you have to crawl across the bed to get in. Square oceanview window with an unobstructed view straight out. You have a zodiac lifeboat hanging below the window and a wall forward of the window for the hydraulic room at the front of the ship so you can't see forward out the window. A bit of banging around in the hydraulic room in the middle of the night on a couple of occasions but generally quiet. You could just hear people from the promenade deck if they were really noisy. There is a light right outside the window so the room doesn't get overly dark but the curtains block out most of it. Overall a good budget choice. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was very clean and was cleaned at least once a day.
For 2 people it was comfortable. There was an extra bunk bed but three people would have been too much. We travel light with only carry-on's and there was enough closet space. Overall a very nice room Read entire member review >>
We had cabin 8062 which is coded as a guarantee obstructed view. When we initially booked it was just coded as obstructed view. The truth behind this cabin it's view is not really obstructed at all. There is a straight light of sight out of the window to the ocean or what you would see where you are at....there is no large life boat in the way. The issues of this room that we found are minor but are that it is above the promenade deck and we heard noise all the time (well when people were yelling) - one night it did keep us awake but nothing we could do about it. There are lights for the promenade deck and they will show around the curtains - it will not be 100% dark in this room at any point. Overall would we book this room again - NO. If you need a room with a window book it - because it is coded obstructed but really isn't obstructed - 8562 on the other side of the ship is the same way so book either of them. We would book an inside cabin over this room based upon cost only - The reason for us booking it was that it was the same cost as an inside room (with the NCL on board credit that we got). Deck 8 has a lot of turns for it's hallway as well - look on a deck map - I'd rather be on a different deck with a straight hallway. 8062 is next to 2 turns in a hallway and we only heard kids running once because the hallway is ramped next to this room. It has a great location for the stairs and elevator which is a huge plus for the room as well. Cabin TV - ok here is an improvement from the last time we cruised.... they are offering more current local (USA) TV and 2 movie channels.... I won't give it 5 stars yet because by day # 5 I had seen all the TV shows at least once - I've got to watch about 1 hour each night before I go to sleep - force of habit I guess - no one goes on a cruise to watch TV but don't repeat the same shows at the same time of the day.

It was supposed to be 90% obstructed view was only 10 so that was great. However there was a light on outside at all times. The curtains kept it out though. I thought it was plenty big enough for the 2 of us. As my wife stated in the newlywed not so newlywed game the shower was plenty big enough for 2 to "exercise". It was clean and comfortable.
