Default Another ?. Which part of the ship?

With the help of so many of you here I'm finally narrowing down my search but I still have quite a few questions. I really appreciate all the help.

So, I'm wondering....My wife and I and our daughter and son are going to sail on Allure in May of 2012. My son will be 2 1/2 years old by then and we're going to get connecting Ocean view balcony staterooms. Because we're limited because of the need of adjoining cabins what part of the ship and or deck would you say would be the quietest? My son will probably be sleeping early and I'm hoping he won't wake up during the night. I've been on ships where I heard lounge chairs on the deck above being dragged around every morning so the crew could clean. I'm looking at cabins toward the rear of the ship on deck 8 and 9 but noticed that Dazzles is across from the cabin. Do you think we would hear the loud music in our cabin. Either category (D1, D2, D3, D4) is ok with us.

Thanks again.

best rule of thumb for a quieter location is to check the deck plans, and choose a cabin with other passenger cabins both below yours and above it.

I would suggest midship; and midlevel. You don't want to be near the pool, or you may hear noise from that area. I have heard from previous posts that the Central Park area is the quietest area.

Plus, midship has less ship motion and is usually close to elevators and stairs if that is an issue. Just make sure you have guest cabins above and below your cabin and you shouldn't have any noise problems.

Have you considered cabins 9202/9204, 9602/9604, 10202/10204, 10602/10604, 11202/11204, 11602/11604, 12202/12204 or 12602/12604?
They are adjoining cabins in a part more fore than aft, but they all have bigger balconies than the standard balconies (80 sqft instead of 50 sqft).

All those cabins have other cabins both below and above, thus no risk for noise from deck chairs or public areas. Avoid cabins on deck 14 as the pool deck is on the deck above.

Thanks again for the great advice. And to Funnel, Yes I'm hoping to book 2 of the staterooms you mentioned. Hopefully my travel agent is in her office today.
