We were on Acadia last December in a balcony cabin (starboard side) below the Belverdere Restaurant. There was an element of noise from the staff pushing trolleys around, normally early morning (5-6am) but little else. To be honest, we soon got used to it and it rarely disturbed our sleep. It was a bit like being reasonably close to an underground train tunnel - a dull rumbling noise. hope that helps.
Thanks for your reply, we are also on the starboard side room A107, We are going on the grande voyage to Australia for 48 nights so I hope we will be alright with this cabin. Are cushions supplied for the balcony chairs?
As I recall our stateroom was about midships, four or five from the central lift lobby so would have been close to A107. You don't get cushions on the chairs, but we just got by with pillows or cusions from the sofia. Have a great cruise - a tip - if you don't get a bathrobes provided drop your stateroom attendant a few pounds and he will find a couple after a day or two.
Hi everyone, just got off Arcadia, cabin on B deck balcony aft and our chairs outside both had blue fitted cushions on them. We sailed from Southampton so they were a bit soggy for the first couple of days but soon dried out as we headed south! We didnt hear any noise from the restaurants however we did develop the smell of the cooking in the cabin particularily in the cabin and a strong smell of bread baking in the early hours, seems that would be nice but the bread was really sickly. Great cruise though with excellent food and friendy and eficient staff.
Best wishes Carol Guy.
Dec 20th 2008 cruise Cabin A100. We found the thunderous trolley noise unacceptable and no matter who we complained to never got any satisfaction. the noise was continuous while the Belverdere was open.We were told it would stop at 10.30pm we phoned at 2am 4am & 6am and the stupid reception would phone you back an hour after phoning to say it had been reported to a supervisor (we pulled the phone plug after every complaint)we only saw one of them to question us (7.30am I dont think so)we came to the conclusion in the end give up its like talking to a plank and the staff have developed the attitude that your the only one making a fuss.
