This room was next to the elevators on the 9th floor. It is a very busy area as the pool and buffet is located on this level. The best part is not having to walk very far to the elevators...this is a plus for us. After the 1st day you get used to the elevator noise. Never really heard much people outside our door. You could hear the singers on the 3rd floor but that was actually nice. The room was comfortable as I thought as advertised. I felt I got what I had paid for. We had three in our room, there was a bed that could have been for the 4th person in our cabin. It was tight with three but still okay.
