Although we booked a guarantee 4A, our TA is trying to get us an upgrade to 4D which is the Empress deck. (we had that deal on the internet and went with the TA so she is trying to get us the same upgrade). Now I'm having doubts if we want to be right under the galley/lounges/dining room. If any of you have "actually" been on this deck, could you please comment if it was a mistake. I don't know if we can even do anything at this point, but if so, we'd like to be able to try. I like the idea of being closer to the action as we'll have our son (14) going off to different places, but I also don't want constant noise all night long. Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.
We had the same concern. We were on the Empress deck so I took a map of our floor and pasted it under the floor of the deck above, matching the elevators. It indicated that we would be under the third table of the dining area.
I was right.
We never heard a sound. We were on the Celebration, though which is older than the Elation, I think.
