We were in cabin #9722 and it was very quiet and fairly close to aft elevators. The buffet was on deck 12 aft, so that was convenient. Everything else was located more toward the middle of the ship so we did a lot of walking. Cabins on Norwegian are smaller than the ones on other cruise lines we have been on. Two twin beds were made into a king-size bed and it was extremely comfortable! The room was attractive and clean. There was a flat screen television in the cabin, but it got very few channels and had no pay-per-view movies to watch. Surprisingly, you are not able to check your expense balance on the t.v. so we had to go to guest relations a couple times to ask them to print out our expenses. The shower in the bathroom was quite large and had glass doors which was nice. On the other side of the shower was a sink. The toilet had its own enclosure. Beware: I do not exaggerate when I say you are a few inches of the wall on all sides of the toilet area.
Warning: I must again warn people who book cabins on deck 8 (like we did last year) that the Spinnaker lounge is on deck 7 aft and they party until about 3 a.m. with loud music. Last year, we were awake all night long with music from the band and then a DJ. On deck 9, we did not hear a thing.
