1264 is on the right side of the ship just forward of mid ships. Randy was the cabin steward and did a great job. The noise from deck 11 (pools-deck chairs, etc) was nothing like what I feared. The balcony was very long but we really didn't use it that much due to the November temps and some rain. The bathroom was very large with two sinks and a big tub. Three big closets and tons of drawer space. Three adults with full luggage and didn't use it all, not even close. The Grand Suite is a great room for 3 or 4.
