No outside noise. It was in between the Forward and Midship elevators--perfect to reach the main show room--but a bit of a walk and two elevator rides to reach our MDR seating (the kitchen prevents being able just to walk the length of Deck 5 to get to the MDR.) Shower was a roll-in with great water pressure and plenty of hot water. With a little practice in handling the shower wand, we were able not to soak the entire bathroom floor. Complimentary shampoo/conditioner/lotion was refilled daily (citrus scented.) The soap was a bar, not that liquid stuff. Plenty of hanging closet space but only four small drawers (another four in the night stands.) The safe was behind the mirror. There was plenty of room for Mom to maneuver her rollator in the room. We were able to keep the room cool enough for our comfort.
