We were in the 'cargo hold' on deck 1, towards the back of the ship. It was a small but adequate room. The beds were comfortable and I didn't feel the rocking of the ship very much. Because there weren't any windows it was very dark which made it easy to sleep. The only noise I noticed was on port days for Puerto Vallarta and Mazatlan as a lot of people came down the hallway to get to the gangway. Even that wasn't bad, however, because I was ready to get off early each day.
