Adjoining cabins, however, are a different story. The doors are really not very soundproof. We were unfortunate enough to have very noisy people next to us. They fought a lot, and did other extremely noisy things as well. Enough to wake me from a sound sleep, and I am a very heavy sleeper.
If you can avoid connecting cabins with strangers, do so.
If you have a specific cruise ship in mind I would post this on the cruise line board for that cruise.
Ear plugs don't take up much luggage space and can be used in case of noise from other cabins and the hall.Ditto that, I'm a light sleeper and all of the ships I've been on have had enough noise to wake me up, (same for hotel rooms). Soft, squeezable, foam ear plugs will work wonders!
Thanks, i was thinking about sounds from us as wellIt could be worse. You could be next to a wise guy like me who applauds when 'your noise' has finished. It could ruin other private moments through the remainder of the cruise.
It failed only once when the folks in the next room were attending a high school band competition and thought that practicing would be best done at 2:00 AM.
For cruise purposes, it is perfect.
Prices range from $50 - $130. The more expensive ones have seagulls, waterfalls, rain, etc add-ons.

Mostly I hear cabin doors when they slam shut. I never hear anyone talking or the TV from the cabins next door. If you have a public area above or below you, you might hear some noise.Ditto......maybe in the hallway once or twice but never inside our cabin? Hmm?
Just do not book under the jogging track or basketball courts, friends did hear some "noise"/pounding on their deck a few times
