we were on the third deck, oceanview cabin, no balcony. The location is near the theatre but the rooms are very quiet! There are no inside cabins in this corridor. The only downside, this part of deck three does not go through to the centrum. In order to get to the other side of the ship you must go up to deck 4, walk through the casino, which reeks of smoke, (they do not care about the kids cutting through the casino)and then go back to deck three if your dining deck is on three. If you are going to the Windjammer, you can go directly to deck 11, but then you will walk through the Solarium, the pool area and then come out at the Windjammer. Nevertheless, we don't mind walking and we do love the lower deck.
