I am sailing on May 14th on the Triumph....We booked a guarenteed inside room and we were upgraded to the Lido Deck, but I am not sure if it is such a good thing with so much stuff on the Lido Deck. Or is it a good thing because there are not even half as many cabins on the Lido as there are on other decks, I would love to hear from anyone with some input.
I answered this question just the other day about a similar cabin on Destiny, a sister ship. The cabin location is great. They are isolated from the noise and hubbub of the Lido deck activity. You hear nothing. Yet, you can run back to your room for sun screen or get a cup of coffee and not spill it on the elevator. The hallway is about 25 % as long
as on the other decks so you get 75% less traffic and noise.
It may have been the best cabin location we have ever had.
Definitely not the verandah right under the Lido. There are about 6 rooms on each side of the ship that are right under the part where everyone sits to eat on the Lido. You hear everytime someone moves their chair at 6am in the morning until the last person from the deck party goes back to their room at 2am. The floors are teak in that area so you hear everything!
We loved the Lido deck....right there near the buffet!!! carried our food back to the cabin and ate on our balcony. This next cruise we booked a Cat 8 room instead because we got one of the "L" shaped rooms that have a much bigger balcony, otherwise we would have selected a lido deck one.
