Then we found out the next morning we were directly under the treadmill in the gym so every morning at 7 am, a herd a horses were above us. We made the best of the situation and had a wonderful cruise.
I was on a Princess ship, The same problem. The suite was at the forward section. The wind was so strong, you could not use the veranda when the ship was moving. It really sucked.
