Really, I did look at the deck plan. It showed Cabin 2414 below another cabin, but very near the Galley. I can't believe that every cabin below the Galley (that would be most of the Cove Balcony cabin's) would have as much noise from above.
Since we were given some OBC for our "discomfort", I think that Carnival knows that this is a very bad, noisy cabin. I'd suggest they save it for overflow or for an entertainer's cabin.
After a week and a half they offered us another balcony cabin. It wasn't worth moving at that point.
This won't stop us from sailing with Carnival, but we'll be much more careful in choosing a cabin next time !
