Our room was spacious (for an inside room) and was immaculately clean. Deck 7 is one of the few that runs "end to end" on the Freedom which made it very easy to get anywhere. Also, this room is almost exactly mid-ship, which makes it very convenient. this room was very quiet, except during parties held on the pool deck/Lido deck. It's work noting that we cruised at New Year's - so 5,000 to 6,000 passengers and crew were jumping up and down simultaneously almost directly overhead, 2 decks above, during deck parties! The only recourse is to join the party, or go to a quieter part of the ship - but you won't be going to sleep early on the nights of a deck party during a holiday cruise! If you have little ones or like to go to be early, I would choose a room forward or aft so you're not directly under the pool area (where the dancing and jumping take place) - especially on a holiday cruise.
