As indicated in our review of the cruise, cabin number 4098 should be avoided at all costs, unless one is totally deaf. While we are careful to avoid cabins too near the engine room or adjacent to elevators, we didn't dream the cruise line would position passenger cabins directly below galley work areas that would be in use after midnight.
A review of deck plans always reveals elevator locations, engine areas are always to the rear and below and late night entertainment areas can be easily identified by even cursory review of deck plans. However, we have now learned to avoid rooms directly below what appears as undesignated, white space on the above deck floor plans. Galley prep areas should be clearly identified. Their tile floors and metal workstations make resonating noise below inevitable.
