We stayed in a FV cabin on Century which was at the back of the ship. There was no balcony but was very roomy for 2 people. I don't remember the exact cabin # but we were on Deck 8 and right by a staircase that took us up to the buffet for breakfast. That was very convenient. Did not notice any more motion or noise. There was a queen size bed w/sliding doors to separate it from the rest of the room, 2 couchs and a pull down. I think it would be quite tight for a family but quite cozy for the 2 of us.
