The stateroom was great, and inside, small of course, but you would know this before booking. the bathroom was bigger than I expected, larger shower than most ships. Plenty of storage, safe in the closet. Comfortable beds. This stateroom in on deck 12, on the transatlantic this was OK, if you are in warmer climates you will have noise from the open deck above, there was some noise each morning as there was a stewards locker below us and the door would slam every morning for about a half hour, if you are an early riser this will not bother you, but if you sleep in, you may be woken up. The location is near Stairway/Lifts B, you do not hear the elevators/lifts, the hall was very quiet. Easy access to the indoor Pavilion pool, and just three decks up from the Commodore Club. All other venues are on decks 2,3,7, a long way to climb the stairs although the lifts/elevators are fast. This is an end cabin so you only have a neighbor on one side.
