This cabin would not bother me in the least....a non issue as far as I am concerned.

We actually request the "obstructed view" balconies on the older ships because I think the slight curvature provides a nice protection from the sun and wind and even cigarette smoke from next door. As far as the view from the couch, it had no affect. I could think that the solid verandah wall staterooms would be more of a problem as you have to stand up to see out.

I would love one of the cabins actually! It gives you more privacy from your neighbors

But that photo makes it looks worse than it actually is. Here is a link to a trip report with a similar cabin. You have to scroll down, there are several verandah photos

I've been in a room like that on another cruise. Wifey and I loved it. We felt like we had more privacy. Didn't have to worry about surrounding rooms peering into ours.

I will be in 8164 in May of 2014, according to the CM who helped me during the rebooking, she has stayed in this same room and she said the obstruction is just a little bit in the upper corner! She said it is very little obstruction so I put my faith in that, I hope it works out for both of us!

We had a room like this on the Dream and again on the Fantasy. Loved it! You won't even notice the obstruction unless you want to. We loved the extra privacy!

If you like your privacy the restricted or Navigators Verandahs are definitely better.
The walls between you and your neighbor go all the way to the floor and if someone really wants to see in your room they have to lean out of their area to see in yours.
I have had 2 different restricted rooms and prefer them over the regular balcony rooms.
Just my .02

We were just on the Dream in that room (8164) and there was very little obstruction. A little on the left side (as you look out), but not a big deal at all.
