Default New cruiser, questions about Pearl for honeymoon


We're planning our honeymoon for August 2009 and I just booked Penthouse category AE to Alaska the other day before the $500 onboard credit promo expired. In hindsight, I don't know if I did enough research... and was hoping for the answer to some questions:

1) How is deck 8 for category AE? Just looked and saw that deck 9 right above has staterooms but deck 7 has the disco. Is it going to be noisy? Are we going to look down from our balcony and see the disco or is the disco thing inside?

2) Didn't really think about the back of the ship... how is it? How will the glacier views be from back there vs. the side of the boat?

3) If I call NCL and ask to change staterooms (is 9th floor better?) will they do so without fee?

4) I am somewhat anxious about having splurged for AE. IF I wanted to downgrade (like sometime now in the next few days) to a mini-suite, will they let me? What will they charge me? I thought the butler & concierge would be nice with AE and it doesn't seem like you get that with mini-suite. ANy other obvious advantages to AE (other than the size of the cabin?)

We are a little older (30) honeymooners and are generally quiet people who want a relaxing time and don't necessarily want to deal with crowds... am hoping this cruise will fit that bill (I also don't want to have to "plan" activities).

Thanks in advance for your help & advice. I've been on 3 cruises, my fiance 1, but all when we were younger & with our parents, so I feel like a fish out of water!
