Looking at the mini-suite/penthouse cabins on the NCL Sun. These are on all four sides of the ship but having never travelled in a foreward or aft stateroom we thought we would try something new and would like advice on the pros and cons of foreward and aft?
Is it really just wind versus engine noise? How windy can it get? - even in calm seas? - does wind actually increase noise in foreward staterooms? - is there any shelter at all? - if aft can you really hear the engines 9/10/11 decks high? - how much privacy do you get or can those above see onto your balcony? - in general are foreward or aft staterooms really better than port/starboard?
I'm sure there are more questions I could ask but any advice would be great, particularly in relation to this ship.
