Mid-ship location was convenient. Layout was pretty standard and met all our needs. Sometimes heard a big swishing water noise, which I can't imagine was from outside due to location, although it sounded a bit like the sloshing of water around a boat. I wonder if we were near a laundry water outlet or something else to do with the interior water system? There was also a repeated slam-slam-slam noise for about 5 minutes during our choppiest night on the ocean, but that never happened again so may have been a loose closet door. Overall, we slept well in this cabin and found the location good.
