this is our first cruise experience, and as expected, we are perturbed by a lot of factors about which we are not sure what decision to take.
We are just about to book our rooms and so need some urgent help if possible. we are being offered the obstructed view rooms on deck 8 on Norwegian star. From the pictures of the ship and looking at the deck plans I see that these rooms are right behind the lifeboats. One good thing about these rooms are that they are wheelchair accessible and so they are roomier than the regular oceanview staterooms. The rooms in question are 8122 or 8622 ..
My first question is, has anyone been in an obstructed room on norwegian star, and if so how bad( or good ) is it ? Does it really affect our cruising experience? If you have any pictures of the view from this room that would be terrific.
The second question is :
We are planning to go on the alaska tour to sawyer glacier from seattle.
One of the rooms is on starboard and the other - port side. Which one is better for viewing ( assuming that there is a little bit of view from these rooms )
Thanks in advance, and look forward to hearing from you.
