We were lucky enough to snag a guarantee suite (W) at the last minute, and were assigned Accessible Sky Suite 9117. The cabin is located on deck 9 just forward of the mid-ship elevators on the port side. We cringed a little when we first learned the location, but ultimately were thrilled with the placement. Despite concerns of noise from the pool deck above, it was generally quiet. The loudest by far was the night of the White Party (Wednesday night before our sea day) when music could be heard until well past midnight on the pool deck. Never once could we hear the elevator, and traffic in the hallways wasn't an issue either. A few footsteps from above as kids ran by on a couple occasions, but no deck chair noise, and quiet every evening and morning. Being mid-ship made getting around incredibly easy.
The room itself is spectacular. Very spacious given it's 'accessible' status, and while there's no walk-in closet, there is plenty of cabinet and closet storage for a week's trip. The bathroom is without a tub, and storage is at a minimum here. No door on the shower does mean the floor gets wet when you shower, but you quickly realize the benefit of the space to move around! The room isn't without a few knicks and dings, but it's overall in great shape. The balcony has two chairs and a table, and both breakfast and afternoon cappuccino were comfortable. If you're used to the S-Class balconies, those on the M-Class ships will feel small. They're generally narrower -- but still great! The overhang from the pool deck is obvious, but definitely helps keep the room shaded and balcony cooler in the late morning/early afternoon. The angled braces 'straddle' the room, so there's none directly in front of the balcony -- our neighbors weren't so lucky! More so than any other cruise, we made quite a bit of use of the balcony and room given the extra space.
