Our stateroom was aft on deck 11, and, although we were at the very back of the ship, we enjoyed the walk (and the quiet) down the hallway. We were in an S1, which was very well appointed and comfortable. For two adults and a child, it is nice to have cabin space that allowed us room to actually move around without knocking elbows. The cabin had masses of storage space, with plenty of room for storing luggage underneath the bed. The balcony was terrific as it was almost a wrap-around, and afforded amazing views both to the side and behind the ship.
Some noise from above due to balcony furniture being moved, but mainly a quiet cabin and excellent location.
