We've booked our 2nd Millenim cruise, this time like the last time on the Vista Deck. Our last cruise we were in cabin 7144, nice mid ship cabin. Our next cruise we are futhar back on the ship in cabin 7166, this is one of the cabins where the balcony is on an angle. I'm looking forward for another wonderful experience. As mentionned the vista deck does not have any entertainment decks above or below. Nice an quiet. The Millenium is a beautiful ship. Im sure you enjoy.
The only difference between # 7142 and staterooms further aft on that deck is the view off balcony forward will be ever so slightly restricted by the Celebrity suites immediately forward of you; they have a semi-circular outward curved ''floor to ceiling'' window. Otherwise, very good location, on an equally lovely ship.
If you value being near the stairways/elevators area for convenience purposes, you're ideally situated.
Staterooms below // staterooms above : dead quiet in that regards.
