Hi, I posted this message several months ago with limited response...thought I'd try again to see if others have new info. If so, I'd appreciate your comments. I've booked cabins 8552 & 8554 on the PEARL. These are obstructed view cabins. I understand that the lifeboats hang in front of windows of cabins on deck 8. I also understand that some views are more obstructed than others. I'm hoping someone has stayed in either 8552 or 8554 and can give me an idea of how much or little they are obstructed. I think 8052 and 8054 would be similar, but on starboard side of ship. Thanks for any help.
