The type of room (Junior Suite) and location (midway between elevator transports) worked well for us. It was easy to get to the gym, the windjammer and pretty much anywhere else on the ship. We had no rooms across the hall and never had any issues with noise or high traffic. A JS category room has a great amount of storage including a walk-in closet and plenty of storage along the wall in the main part of the cabin. The balcony is double the size of other standard balcony rooms which was also nice.
