We had an aft, deck 8 cabin and could hear the chairs and tables two decks above us being dragged back into their "proper" placement each evening. It was always early though and didn't bother us. They are quick and it's not that loud. The only noise issue we had was one night a large group of teens decided to hang out there around 2 in the morning. They were loud enough to wake me up. I opened the slider to see if there was a party on my veranda I hadn't been invited to and heard a boy shout, "Let's throw a chair over the side!" I quickly called and reported it. I don't think it was 3 minutes and they were gone.
