Notes: We are not neurotic, we just like this cabin. We have been in this cabin almost 6 times and LOVE it! I saw someone else complain about the rattle from the thrusters when porting but that is going to happen... It does rattle like the WHOLE ship will at port (arrival and departure only for just a few minutes) but it is a VERY quiet cabin. There is virtually NO hall noise and the engine noise is minimal. We like it because it seems to lull us to sleep like a white noise generator.
Additionally, because the cabin is low and aft there is less bouncing during the cruise. I have seen waves splashing the porthole on this cabin back in 2004 but never had better cruising than this area of the ship.
Here is the best part, after huge dinners it is just one (or two) floor(s) down (with gravity) to get 'home'. After exhausting ports of call while everyone else is waiting for elevators you take one deck of stairs and you are home... no crowded elevators, EVER! (If, of course, you can climb stairs.)
Plus, at Castaway Cay the starboard side has the BEST view of the island.
