Been there and done that and am doing it again in May, so it is a fine location. BUT it is a little noisy on the side with the "lifts" because of all the passengers talking/laughing etc. that goes on while using them.
YIkes, you have jogged my memory and are certainly correct, we were on the EOS when that occurred! But it's a good thing when a couple of dozen cruises run together. We are blessed to be able cruise even though my wife is not a junkie like I am and will only go once a year. So I drag my Mom or a friend whenever possible, Robbie
It is strictly up to your fellow passengers since you are by the central location as they head off to or from their rooms on your floor. As I reported, it was a "little" noisy but then again you are on a ship with over 3,000 people. I am pretty tolerant while cruising but if I had a choice of cruising on the "hump" again, I would probably choose a cabin away from the stairs/elevators.
