Default Balcony Room Under Lido - Worth it?

We are booking super late. The only balcony room is on the Veranda deck directly under the Lido Restaurant. Is it going to be crazy noisy? We have only stayed on the really famous persons deck (the Riveria)
This is on the Conquest if that makes a difference. Need quick answers

It may be noisy during the morning and evening hours. Especially if you are under the galley portion of the Lido.

If you can find a balcony that isn't under the Lido you may enjoy it more.

If it is an aft balcony you will probably be fine since there is less traffic and not a problem with rolling food carts and trollys.

Take care,
Mike

We have stayed in a similar cabin twice. The only noise I remover was what sounded like one person walking quickly in heels once each evening. I always assumed it was a staff member making her rounds.

for reference that was cabin 8312 on Valor which is a Conquest class ship. We also stayed a little further back, 8346, on Glory and I remember hearing a little chair shuffling. Nothing that would wake you up or stop conversation.

Just based on this one thread I we moved cabins. There was one that looked like it could have been right over the disco. I opted for on the Veranda Deck forward.

I never book clients under the Lido Deck unless it's the only thing available. Some people are more prone to be bothered by noise than others and sometimes the noise can be more than others, so it's a personal thing. We've been under the Lido Deck on several occasions when booking guarantee cabins and would much prefer to be another deck down. We've heard everything from vacuum cleaners, chairs being dragged, stuff being dropped, people walking hard, etc. It can be rather annoying.

If you have the option, go down on more deck. You could get lucky and not get much noise, but why take the chance if you don't have to.
