Deck 6 Balcony Cabin recommendation

Recommended Posts

We're currently booked into 601, which appears to be fully forward and under the bridge.  Any pros/cons to these cabins (601/602)?  Our main concerns are possible noise from the loading/unloading of Zodiac rafts from the bow of the ship or from the bridge area / bridge deck outside that is above the cabin, so wanted to see if anyone on here has stayed in those cabins before.  Thanks!

Can't speak to the potential zodiac issue but did experience sounds from the Grand Salon below in a prior trip in 607. Can't say it really bothered us but if you're concerned may want to consider other cabin.

I wouldn't worry about the zodiacs on the bow being moved. They don't look like they're moved on a regular basis. The tenders are on the sides of the ship. We have heard people mention noise from the Grand Salon below their cabins, but the entertainment doesn't last very late at night so it shouldn't be too much of  problem unless you go to bed early and need it to be quiet.

Thank you! From the deck plan there appears to be a door across from the cabin’s door, but may only be used to access the bow (or an emergency exit) so mostly concerned whether that door may slam on occasion or if traffic through that door/area should be light.  Seems it will be relatively quiet since it’s at the end of the hall.  


Had a bad experience on another cruise line when our cabin was right under the gym’s freeweights, so trying to ensure there won’t be a 6am wake up this time around!
