We were in 416 and the far aft of the ship, port side. We found the room to be (feel) spacious, with plenty of storage. The bathroom felt larger than others we have had on other cruise ships--and was the first time we had a bath tub. The window provided a partial view and let in lots of light--a plus for us. We did not notice any problems being on the promenade deck--with folks outside the windows on deck at most times. It was not noisy from the deck activity. With its location far aft, it did require quite a bit of walking to get to functions around the ship--but that was a plus for us. There was no interior foot traffic or noise. We did get winch noise when docking or departing port--as the anchor and lanyard winches were located immediately under our stateroom. This was really only a factor when the arrivals were in the early morning hours. Read entire member review.
PROS: Clean, roomy for two (larger than most standard ocean-view cabins on other lines), nice sitting area and work/makeup counter, good size bathroom with shower and tub large enough to be quite functional, good size window, comfortable bed, plenty of closet space and under-bed space for clothes and suitcases. Cabin is far enough from the stern that engine vibration and mechanical noises are kept to a minimum while underway.
CONS: The steward's utility closet is nearby across the hall. As soon as room servicing begins around 7:30am each morning, the noise from scooping ice into buckets acts as a second alarm clock. Window shelf and curtains show significant wear and are in need of replacement. Cabin is just below the Promenade deck so muffled walking and moving of deck chairs can be heard from time to time (in addition to the early morning hose-down of the deck). Mechanical noises can be heard when docking but are much more subdued than the noise in cabins further aft.
