LIDO deck cabins.

I like deck 7 or 8 on Carnival ships. Empress and Verandah.  How are the lido deck balcony cabins?  Is there noise and disturbance from the Lido and from the spa areas?

I won't do the Lido deck for that very reason.  There's so much traffic in that area my assumption is that it would be noisy.

On Princess, deck 8 above the Promenade is my favourite.

Easy to get around.

When I smoked, it was easy to go out to the port side.

We learned once, do not ever get a cabin under a high impact area (e.g., sport court, pool area, jogging track). Lots of thuds at all hours, it seems.  Spa isn't bad but the gym area (often connected to the spa) is murderous, especially when aerobics classes are being run or free weights are located.  The casino isn't usually too bad unless there is a music stage... then you get the bass line and possibly dancing.

 

Also, we avoid anywhere around service areas. Early morning carts hitting walls and busy crew elevators are noising, no matter how careful crew members try to be.

I like to do Lido or Spa decks. If your cabin is forward of the elevators (and away from the outside doors) there really isn't much traffic. The spa deck is pretty much graveyard quietBig Smile

I figured every cabin up there can't be horrible.

I always get a balcony stateroom on the Lido Deck. No noise and I'm close to the pool and the food. There is an area where there is no traffic because it's at the end of the hallway. There is an exit door that separates us from the traffic that leads to the Lido deck.

Balcony on Lido must be particular to Carnival Lines. All NCL balconies open to the ocean and the access door is into a hall with inside cabins across from them. Some of the suites open to or are above the upper pool decks. I hear the term Lido deck frequently but being an NCL person am not familiar with it as none of the decks on an NCL ship are labeled LIDO. Balconies are usually on decks 8 and upward.On the smaller 8, 9, 10, 11 and the newer bigger 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14. Deck 7 is usually the promenade and above the balconies are the pool deck, sports deck etc.

LIDO is commonly the pool / buffet deck. On Carnival, the balconies overlook the ocean, not the pool. Carnival and Princess, and possibly others, have a block of cabins on the forward Lido deck, with the pool in the middle section and the buffet aft.

The spa deck has balcony cabins on the deck(s) above the Lido deck.
