My partner is a former cop. He detects every little noise around him and is a very light sleeper. I, on the other hand, am totally oblivious to noise or trouble. At home, more often than not, we sleep in separate bedrooms. I really want to go on a cruise but I am concerned that if I snore or if it is noisy he will not get much sleep. He is in his early 40s and I am in my late 40s.
Once in 14 cruises was I able to hear the cabin next door (just a couple young women having a really good -- drunk -- time).
I, too, am snorer from hell. Art and I sleep separaetly due to this, too. We find that if we leave the beds separatein the cabin that helps, and Art never seems to complain about my snoring while on a cruise.
I think it sounds like you will be fine, and just buy those foam ear plugs if need be.
Hope this helps.

I too an sensitive to noise when I'm trying to sleep. My solution is a "white noise" machine. I have this great machine that is a an alarm clock, radio, and CD player but also plays a variety of soothing noises that cut off all other distractions. I got mine from Sharper Image it plays 20 different sounds that I select, such as rain fall, fog horns, the ocean waves, crickets chirpping even the sound of traffic if that's what you are used to. Works for me! I can't sleep without it. Costs about $90. Jimbo
, after 2 years of dating my boyfriend (I guess husband? partner? now) and I have moved in together, and now after 2 months we have resigned to kissing each other good night on Sun thru Thurs night and sleeping in separate rooms for all the reasons that you have stated above. I am the early riser and now have to brush my teeth in the down stairs bathroom. The poor dog just plays musical beds all week long.
