Default Star & the Plaza Deck

It's getting close and now I am having some concerns about the Plaza Deck on the Star Princess. Once before I asked and was told the Plaza deck is fine but our rooms are towards the front of the ship, off to the side and under the entertainment deck which has the theatre. We have our friends going with us and it will be their first cruise. I guess what I am concerned about is the noise and the rocking of the ship, being that close to the front. Have I made a mistake getting the rooms on the Plaza? I really want this to be a good experience for them.

Default Plaza Deck

Rest assured, your on a deck that has 50% less traffic the all other decks excluding the Lido deck. Your close to the laundry facilties and the theater has it's last show closing around midnight.
Second, All the drunks that sing and carry on between the hours of 2 am and 3 am cruising down the deck corridores will be far more disturbing in the upper decks.
The closer to the water line the better, The Plaza deck is the closest you can go and the elevators during first and second seating are totally packed, especially the central and aft Elevator banks.
Cost was the factor that determined your cabin location.
Only bad weather will effect your cruise.
Remember a inside cabin is like a shoe box, once the lid is closed, it does not matter where you are in the closet.
Besides, turn your TV on the channel with the outside webcam. That is your window.
PS if your still concerned, try the Lido deck inside, center. $$

Happy sailing

We cruised around Cape Horn in March on the Star. Cabin P224. The plaza deck is close to most activities. The dining rooms are on the same deck or just 1 up.
The weather was so windy that we could not dock in Ushuaia, and the sea was too rough to circle Horn Island. We had no trouble sleeping. The theater above did not cause any problens as the stage is well forward of the cabins. An Alaska cruise should be no problem.

How about Star and the Lido deck, same deck as the Horizon Buffet? I'm more towards the front?
