You should be ok. The pools are closed in the evening at some point and I know they aren't used late at night. So, though you won't be napping easily during the day, you should be fine at night.
Just study the deck plans carefully in the future if you want to avoid this sort of thing. You can always call your TA and ask to be changed, as well.
If other cabins in the same catagory are available, you can easily change it.

If you're really concerned, you should be able to swap cabins. I'd bet that you'll be O.K. with the "under the pool" cabin. I'd be far more worried if my cabin was on a low deck, and either in the bow, or one of the last cabins in the stern.
Re: Should have known better, but now need a solution...
Yikes, you got one of the E-Ticket cabins I have warned folks about. Quick, since it is just one of your cabins, make sure it is not your cabin. Else, buy the wine package for dinner? Take an allergy medication that makes you drowsy? Leave the TV on low?
BTW, not just the daytime people noise, there can be wave slapping at night.

Now that the damage is done, what's the best way to survive a (possibly endless) noisy cabin? For those who have been in such dilemmas, how did you make the best of the situation? Thanks.
