Yes. We were in an obstructed view on deck 8 on the Jewel. It means what it says - all we could see was the inside of the lifeboat - but we did have natural light. But the cruise was terrific and if it meant not going or being in that cabin again then we would certainly chose to go. Hope that helps.
Did you have a window or porthole?
We had a window but the lifeboat was positioned right outside it and all we could see was the inside of the lifeboat which may well have been used as a tender and seemed to be used as storage as we had crew walking over it on occasion. We (presumably) had one way glass but it can be quite disconcerting on occasions. Hope this helps.
