Donna, I'm sorry to disagree , but we find the dining room very noisy.

When we go, I sit next to my DH's "good" ear so I can tell him what's being said when he misses it. I also have a slight hearing loss and it's a problem for me, too . Sometimes we both miss what's being said!

Melissa, thanks to your DH for his service . I'd suggest that you get used to (unobtrusively) "talking in his ear" if there's no way to fix his hearing. It will become routine after a while. Also, try to make sure that he doesn't mind asking people to repeat what they said, especially the waiter, who may have an accent and be hard to understand.

I do agree that you should ask for a "quieter" part of the dining room, but even that will have people talking and dishes clinking.

Have a wonderful cruise,
