I have seen concerns about the noise level from the Lido deck pool area which is directly above this stateroom and the suites. Is it common to have issues like this, I have a booking here but have not left the deposit as yet. It is due by tomorrow. Is it a good idea to have a stateroom right below the pool area? Does the noise really get through?

I would move farther aft; we stayed on Riviera deck under the dining area on Emerald (sister ship) and had no noise issues. Those traveling with us farther forward did have noise issues from above.

Great ship, you shouldn't have any trouble at all. The only noisy night will be for the island party. If you don't go to the island party you should just stay home.
