Ok, I am not sure how you were 'allocated' a room without your knowledge of the room number or where it was on the ship - any good T/A would discuss this with you, but that aside, there is no noise from the lifts - this is a brand new cruise ship. the lifts open inwards so the passengers walk out of the lift and then have to do a 180 degree turn to get to the corridor. You have a room on the 'hump' which is highly sought after so surprised this room was available. I have myself had a room in exactly the same location and did not hear a peep.

....Unless of course you booked a 'guarentee' cabin where the T/A should have explained to you that you have no say over what cabin you are given and the location. Either way you have got a great room and location IMHO.

I also booked last minute for October (next week) and was not given a cabin number by the T/A, all they could guarantee was that it would be a balcony cabin and RC would allocate and we were upgraded to a Junior Suite on Deck 10 aft portside, 4 cabins from the lift, which is great for us because my husband is recovering from a leg op and we wanted something close to the lifts and food areas as his walking is not great yet. So I guess it is a bit like last minute package where you are allocated on arrival only with a better outcome!

We always go nearest the lift/stairwell as it's less to walk & we've never experienced noise.

Make sure you both sign up for the meet&mingle then! Go to royalcaribbean.com - then customer support/faqs and under 'onboard' you will find instructions. RCI throw a party if more than 25 people register.

I would like to know where I can find a deck plan or elsewhere. As well as, figuring out what the alphabet has to do with the cabin catagories such as, H,H,I,L,M,N and Q.
