On our last cruise we never even heard our neighbors, or their TV or any other random sounds. Does the door make a difference?
This is a hard one and is somewhat dependent on the ship. I have had connecting cabins where the door made no difference but I also had one, on Celebrity Mercury, where it made a slight difference. I never noticed a noise problem but the problem was that the cabin had less storage space because of the position of the door. Where cabinet for drawers would have been there was a door.
