From your posts I get the feeling that you are very edgy about the mini suite. Probably now what you want to hear, but perhaps you should move to a cabin that you know and love..... that's not a criticism, just as a fellow cruiser looking on.
PS The noise came from the floor. Re ear plugs, not at all. Re what time it went on until, no idea as we were asleep.
Yes you are correct that I'm wavering about this. If it was entirely down to me, I think I would probably move to the front of the ship, with no noise from lounges, no vibration, no soot and no smokers! Problem is, wife and two daughters would like to be at the rear with the bigger balconies.
Also, it's a full suite not a mini-suite, plus an adjacent balcony cabin for daughters. So, all in, around £10k expenditure. And I'm paying for all of it. So you'll perhaps forgive me for being a little paranoid that my hard earned cash will be well spent.
Problem is, some posts (like yours) reassure me that it will be OK, whereas others (answering the same questions) make me feel it's going to be a problem. If the feedback was consistent, the decision would be easier!
