I've got a cabin request also, we are sailing out on the llirica cabin 10095 if you could dig up a pic that would be great!!My answer is assuming you are on the ship before August as from 31 Aug to 9 Nov she is being stretched and refitted and I can't find a deck plan for after then.
Couldn't find much info on this ship, found a deck plan but not sure if this is a good spot or a noisey one. As i've found some noise complaints in my searching.
As you have a balcony suite on deck 10 you are bound to have overhead noise , unless you were in one of the front cabins which are below the spa. your cabin is below the open air caferteria and I would expect there to be early morning overhead noise as the crew move tables and chairs when getting ready for the early risers having breakfast al fresco, along with footfall from early bird guests.
I recently had this type of cabin on deck 12 on both Opera and Sinfonia and even there on deck 12 we had overhead noise from crew setting up deck chairs. i'm afraid the overhead noise comes with the territory of a balcony suite on this class of ship.
The other point is it is across the corridor from the central "white space" which houses the exhausts en route up to the funnel. I have no exprience as to whether this generates noise, but at least it isn't a crew stairwell which can be the source of noise as crew move about the ship.
I've included the position of your cabin from the outside of the ship plus some photos I took myself of the same type of cabin ( 248 sq ft with a 52 sq ft balcony) that I had on OPERA and SINFONIA recently. I hope they give you an idea of what they look like.
