REALLY quiet, plenty of strategically placed storage. Very comfortable bed, and I'm picky and usually don't sleep well the first night in a hotel, and had no trouble at all. little bit of sun in the late afternoon on the balcony, which was nice. sparkling clean, bathroom well designed as well. Only issue is lack of plugs. I think deck 7 is pretty ideal - 3 floors up to the pool, aquaspa, solarium, and buffet, 3 floors above the main dining room. can walk to either, but also was not a long wait for the elevators at any time.
