We just "upgraded" to two Promenade View staterooms on deck 6... Are we going to be sorry for the amount of noise/lack of privacy? This seemed like the right thing to do since we were absolutely at the aft end on deck 8, interior staterooms.
I was on the voyager abaout two years back, and had an interior room. I would have KILLED for a promenade at that time. THey are in the middle of everything, but unless you will be in the room during the day, or early evening's, you should not have any problems. At night, all seemed quiet and calm. If you aks me, I think it was a good move.
