We stayed in a balcony cabin on deck 8, #8682, port side, very far aft because we booked rather late, but we didn't feel a thing. The ship doesn't have odd noises - no creaking. The cabin has was a very good size, with plenty of storage and a nice size shower with doors - no fighting the shower curtain like you do on older ships. I do wish they'd reconstruct the toilet set up - you have to reach around and move the lid to flush - yuk. It would also be nice to have lounge chairs on the balcony so we could really relax and perhaps snooze out there. The thermostat was a bit wacky - it was either too hot or too cold in the room and we never could find that magic balance. The cabin was clean and in no disrepair. Bedding was super comfortable. The blow dryer provided was lame - it burns itself out after just a few minutes, so bring your own. All in all, I would stay in this cabin again.
