8188 or 9176 on Fantasy?

I'm trying to decide between these two staterooms. It seems they are identical, except for the deck. Is there any benefit to being one deck higher? Noise, vibrations etc.?
Thanks

We stayed in 8188 on the Fantasy in October. LOVED the deck. You'll get some vibrations in either room when the ship is moving fast, but it's not too bad. The vibrations when docking are very bad, but very brief as well, and I think you'd feel those anywhere aft, so I can't see any difference there either. Didn't have any noise issues. I'm attaching a video I took of the cabin. Good luck and have fun!

Thank you for the video!
We have this stateroom in February of 2014 and I was kind of undecided if we should keep it, but seeing HOW huge the veranda is, sold me on it!

So glad I could help! Make sure you guys are up early on Castaway Cay day, you'll have the best view on the ship as you're pulling in!
