Cabin Rating

Upon entering our interior cabin, an entirely run-of-the-mill choice on Deck 7 Aft, it was clear that it was well laid out. There was a well-lit desk with pencil drawer and stack of 4 drawers and a stool that could be hidden under the desk, and then there was another counter under which were a mini-fridge and 3 shelves. The closet space had ample tall and short hanging space, with hangers, and shelves, and a safe. On both sides of the bed, there were matching nightstands with a top drawer and lamp. No clocks, so bring your own. The bathroom had a shower with curtain, adequate shelving both above and below the sink, and 2 hooks on the door. There were 2 hooks on the wall of the cabin as well, but I could have used more. The shower had a retractable clothesline for hanging wet bathing suits and such. There was a shower gel in a dispenser in the shower, but no other toiletries were provided. We had to ask for the ice bucket to be filled daily and for extra towels for my long hair and for a "Do Not Disturb" sign, but they were all readily provided by our cabin steward. Blue towels, for the pool, were provided but had to be accounted for in the cabin, or we'd be charged.
Now for the downside: though I had made sure when booking that our cabin 7389 and that of our children 7388, on the parallel hallway, were not near any elevators or stairways, it turns out that they were BOTH immediately adjacent to an empty crew area. Well, we were unlucky enough to be awakened multiple nights during our 2 week cruise between 3-6am with an awful clanging and clanking, which occurred directly behind our headboard in our case, and immediately next to my eldest daughter's bed in Cabin 7388. What could this racket possibly be?? Upon investigation, I found in this bright white-painted smoke-smelling crew area that a legion of metal signposts (like those that the following day stood sentry upon disembarkation saying "No Exit this Way" or "To Shuttle Bus") was amassed along the wall, behind which my headboard was. And what was the response of Customer Service when we visited them? "You must call at the time the noise is occurring, so it can be duly investigated." And guess what happens at 4:30am when I am awakened but my husband is still asleep and I am supposed to call the front desk and then they send someone to "investigate" by knocking at our cabin instead of where the noise was coming from, but the noise is by then probably over? After several more nights of this, we even suggested that if these infernal signposts couldn't be moved to the deck where they are actually used (which would be the logical solution) the crew at least pad the walls with mattresses or other padding to dull the sound . . . to no avail. Our complaints fell on deaf ears, for TWO weeks! This to say nothing of the fact that when we, exhausted on our vacation by interrupted nighttime sleep, tried to catch an afternoon nap, we still couldn't rest due to incessant multilingual announcements and running/screaming children in the hallways.
