Default Mini Suites, Balcony cabins on Aloha Deck on the Diamond Princess

Does anyone have any information for the mini suites on the Emerald Deck, regarding position, noise and balcony cover, also Aloha cabins under pool area for noise.
thanks..

Mini-suites on Emerald are fully covered, as are balconies on Aloha. Minimal noise might be heard in the most aft port side minis on Emerald, but it stops by 11pm. On Caribbean, it did not bother us at all. EM

Emerald minis are the best.
There are only a few and they go fast so if you are thinking of booking one grab it and mark the booking NO Upgrade!

I'd mark it a "meta" upgrade just in case they want to upgrade you to a full suite

Thanks for the information, still have 5 hours left before we book, it comes down to if we want to be near friends on Aloha deck. We just had a junior suite on Voyager of the seas, and the more room, is good.

We were on Diamond on the Aloha deck, aft cabins A749 & A751. When we are on our balconies we could hear deck chairs being moved, but never heard it in our room. I should mention we sailed to Alaska, so the pool was probably not that popular. I hope you enjoy her, we did!
