We were on a higher floor with an inside room when we got on the ship. Realizing we would like to have a room with a window we requested at the main desk that if any came available we would like to change rooms. On the third day our wish came true and we were then on the lower deck where the dining room, desk, excursion office was and we loved it. We did not have to wait for lifts like those on the higher decks. But of course it is all in what a person likes. We had a window and was just a few doors down from the laundry area which was very convenient on a long cruise.
