Hi sailing April 14 Carnival Sensation i am assigned this room and I was wondering if anyone had pictures or video they would share. I'm concerned about exactly how much is obstructed.
Carnival Sensation V27 obstructed view
The obstruction is a lifeboat. Why are you concerned ?
As stated how much of the view is Blocked? Is the entire life boat in front of the balcony? Does anyone have a picture?
Balcony cabins are usually above the lifeboats. Never saw a lifeboat in front of a balcony. The obstruction may be the rails used to lower the lifeboat. If that’s the case the obstruction should be minimal. Less than a seat behind a girder at the original Yankee Stadium. You should still have a nice view of the ocean.
Without going too far into Carnivals site, the Sensation May have balconies below the lifeboat. I don’t know your exact cabin. You may have a view of the bottom of a boat. Give me some time and I’ll see if I can find V27
This is what I found;
Stateroom V27 Overview Details Amenities
Two twin beds (convert to king) and single sofa bed. Sofa and coffee table. Desk and seat. Full bathroom with shower. 3 closets. Private balcony with obstructed view; patio chairs and table.
Note: View is obstructed by a lifeboat, tender boat and/or steel beam.
All images are representative of staterooms. Actual configurations may vary.
how much of an obstruction, I can’t say. It’s a junior suite, I’m sure the view will be nice.
Thanks for your help
That would be ok. Just didn't want to look at a lifeboat the whole cruise lol
Thanks again for all your input. I feel a bit better. I will share pictures upon return.
I found some reviews on other sites for cabins similar to yours - most of them stated that the "balcony was obstructed, but the view was still nice".
Cabins V23, 30, 34. V42 review is where I took the above quote - same location as your cabin but on other side of the ship.
You can also Google "Carnival Sensation V27" and if any pictures are out there, this search should bring them up.
I have had a lot of success with this method when researching rooms for noise issues, etc.
I'd much rather look at a steel beam than my work desktop
