So, does that mean room 7570 and 7568 will have an obstructed view as well??

I completely agree. Even the word "obstruction" seems a little over used here. From what I can tell within the cruise industry an obstructed or partially obstructed view is something that covers a portion of the window while looking to the outside world (lifeboat, etc). I wouldn't think Disney or any other brand out there for that matter could justify reclassifying such a room bacause of such a small issue. I think I can honestly say that the small portion that runs down the side of that balcony wouldn't affect my cruise or perception thereof. I think room size and location has a lot more to do with the classification than the peripheral views from the balcony or verandah.

This whole family reunion cruise was my idea and it want it to go so well.
My cousin-who ironically has this room- lost her husband recently. He was a policeman killed in the line of duty. We are all trying to have some fun from so much sorrow. I sure hope her and her son are not disappointed.

Please accept my condolences for your cousin and her son. Sadly and ironically, this was our first cruise in the two years since our daughter Amanda died of breast cancer, so we understand that this will be a bittersweet experience for your cousin and your family. Seems like 7650 is somewhat of a "memorial cabin". Our daughter was an avid Disney cruiser, and only because it was a new ship were we able to try it again. We are Platinum from cruises on the Magic and Wonder, but I'm not sure we can return to those ships. Too many memories!
My condolences to both of you. How wonderful to honor the memory of a loved one on a cruise like this, even tho as you said, it is a bittersweet memory at best.
I was going to ask if anyone had info re: Stateroom #XXXXX - but that really doesn't seem important anymore.
The important thing is that our grandchildren will be WITH us on a memory-making occasion - and "so what" about the view? It will be our time together that matters - not some fleeting view, or the food, or anything else...
Thank you both for putting things into perspective.
Please know that I'm saying special prayers and sending warm thoughts to both of you and your families.
My best regards,
Gretchen

Ah thanks. You know I get caught up in all the details too, but you are right. Wonderful memories will be created and I will be half sad when my cruise starts cause it will be that much closer to the cruise being over.

I agree...we had 6560 on the MV, and I didn't think this was any kind of any issue...the view was still fine. I wouldn't classify this as obstructed either. I loved our view!

I agree with izzinmac, after looking at the pictures how is this obstructed?

I looked at the pictures and the only ones with room 9590 and 9592 look to be taken before the panels were put on. Am I just not looking at the pics correctly?

9592 does not have this "obstruction". It runs directly up from between the lifeboats, so 9590 and 9588 do. The pics in the link I posted are before the panels were added.

Thanks for the help. My online ressie says 9590 and my mailed confirmation says room 9592. Hmmmm. I'm guessing the online one is correct.

Perhaps I missed it, but did you take any/post pictures with a 'straight ahead' view? I mean, yes, your view might be slightly different, on the sides, but does it really obstruct a view that much? I would like to see what it would look like from a forward direction. Then I and others could make a more educated comment on whether or not we fully agree with you.

Quite honestly, the verandahs are so shallow you are seated or standing very close to the railing anyway. So any loss of visual angle is minimized. Basically, you aren't behind the panel, you are next to it. Your room is not a connecting room, so you don't have a connecting door. Plus, the hall configuration is very convenient. Since the room forward of you starts the larger family verandahs, there is a nice jog in the hall there that makes the hallway seem shorter, and makes it impossible to not find your room. Heck, you could be blind drunk, and not miss this cabin.. Just stagger or crawl down the hall til your head plows into a wall, stick your room card out to the left, and, walla, your room door is open!

Thanks for giving me a laugh - makes me realize I'm being silly about worrying over nothing. This will be my first cruise so it's not like I have anything to compare to anyway.

I also want to say sorry for your loss. My mom survived breast cancer (I suppose) but eventually cancer came back a few years later and that was it. Sucks.

Really, Chuck E Cheese??? I'm sure Disney has a higher standard than your refenence. There are other Cruise lines that might be more to your liking if it looked too cheap.

Can anyone help me figure out is 6108 is one of the rooms with this so called obstruction? Looking at the deckplan it is on the other side of the ship from 6608. Does anyone have a photo similar to the first one on this post but for the other side of the ship?

Thanks
