I guess it would depend on what you'd rather have above you, the Windjammer or the pool. We found the cabins to be very soundproof so I don't think you'd hear much from above. I think you feel movement more in the front of the ship than the rear. At least we thought so. I prefer to stay mid ship but if that's not available I think I'd go with the rear. No matter where you end up, you're going to have agreat time!
