We had a stateroom on 7 97140) at the end of the ship. We had a larger verandah than rooms on the sides. The room was a tiny bit larger, but not that much. Sitting and watching the wake was restful and we always had beautiful views of the ports as we left. It was 2 decks right below the buffet and 4 decks just above the Vista Dinning Room...very convenient. We did have some fall out from the pool deck a couple of times but it was more of a laugh than a problem. We usually backed into port so we had the best view and if we did not, we could see both sides being on the end. I am sold on rooms in that area!
