We stayed on the Lido deck on our last cruise in Decemeber. It was so handy for us. A lot of times we would go out to the elevators forgetting that we were on the Lido> We would just laugh when we realized we were on the deck we wanted to be...(where the food, pool, and deck activities are located) Our balcony cabin was forward......9233 I think. It was quiet, and there was very little movement. We will request a Lido cabin the next time we cruise.....which will hopefully be no later than next spring.
