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.

Two nights on Indy..

By Alison Ranaldi

Last week I spent two nights on the newly revamped Independence of the Seas.We sailed from Southampton in glorious sunshine to Le Havre and back. This was my third time on board this ever-popular ship and I was keen to see the changes to her after a big refit. We had a balcony cabin on deck 9 which had everything we needed for a comfortable break. I’m not generally a fan of mini-cruises. They offer an excellent way for someone like myself to see the ships but I do not think they are a g...
