Hi we were on Golden deck a few weeks ago which is a few desck higher, had small amount of background engine/air conditioning noise. Much more noise caused by the romantic encounters of our cabin neighbours, very loud female woke us up a few nights doing what comes naturally. Asked to get moved, but there were no equivelent decks/cabins free, so were offered ear plugs!
