Needing privacy AND a restful morning....
Tish, deck 5 (upper deck I think) should be O.K. Also, remember that they don't drop the anchor every day. It would only be in ports where they have to tender in, so that won't be a problem on most mornings. (It is quite loud however) You might get a little bit more motion, but I'd bet not enough to bother you. You might hear the waves hitting the bow when the ship is underway, but probably not loud, and many people say this is a soothing noise,,,,not offensive at all. Bottom line, I wouldn't worry at all about this cabin location.

Enjoy your cruise!

I agree with Ken that on the Upper deck you are in a better deck than I was; also my experience was on a much smaller ship (Radiance class); Miracle is bigger; the anchor was a shock for the first time, once I realized what it was not so bad the second time, but it did wake me up both times and unfortunately it was after staying up tooo late. (I am not a morning person at all). Also the noise of the waves hitting the bow was relaxing but I didn't like the constant motion at the front; it was only bad on one portion of the trip when the ship was fighting the current rather than sailing with the current.
