In 09 I stayed in 2639, Aft, Starboard, Inside Cabin on the Wonder. Loved it. No problems with movement or noise from hallway traffic. You did notice the engines at night but I found it to be distant, unobtrusive and actually very pleasant. I think that the engine noise combined with the darkness of the interior stateroom really helped me sleep soundly. I don't recall noise or vibration pulling into port, but I'm sure there was some, being so low and so far aft.

I just remember loving the sound of the engines at night.

We stayed on Deck 2 on the Wonder last year. I don't remember having any problems with the stateroom in terms of noise. However, I did book this year on Deck 7 of the Magic because I didn't like the fact that our port holes were at eye level with the pier, so we would have to keep the curtains drawn when at dock.

We were on the Magic, aft inside room. We found it quite a good location! WHEN I sail again, I will try to be aft again - because one quick elevator ride and you are at the food, drink, and pool! The ONLY negative was the thruster noise and that was ONLY when we were docking, so early morning on port days was noisy. But since docking meant we wanted to be up and out anyway, it wasn't a big deal. I would do that room location again, absolutely.

We were in 2110 on the Magic in 2009 for 7 nights. We loved that room. Just off the aft elevators/stairs, little motion, and only a slight hum. In 2011, we were on the Wonder for 15 nights in 6039 (forward to mid) and we felt so much more motion than we did on deck 2. And the room creaked something awful. I think I slept better every night on deck 2 than I did on deck 6.

Glad to hear at least a few good reviews of Deck 2 aft! We are located there on the Magic in a few weeks.

We are actually pleased with our location as well, 2nd floor right on the edge of mid-ship/aft. We've heard many good reviews of our room. I wanted a lower floor, due to the fact that we've never cruised before and I don't know if we'll have issues with sea sickness or not. Lower floors don't feel as much movement. I was orig. looking at rooms on 5,6,7 floors and was told that you feel more movement in those rooms.

Been on deck 2 on both of our cruises on the Magic. No problems, would stay on deck 2 again. Some thruster noise, but that was only when they were trying to get into a port. Otherwise, enjoyed that deck.

We were under the kitchen and it was not ideal. Late at night we would hear things being pushed across the floor and by the end of our cruise there was something dark (grease maybe) dripping literally down our wall. Our stateroom host tried to address it, but there wasn't much he could do and we didn't make a big stink since we knew we were under the kitchen.

I cannot recommend it--at all! Maybe not being aft would make a difference because what is above you, but something to consider.

I don't know that I would have "made a big stink", but I definately would have brought it to the attention of Guest Services ASAP. Being under the kitchen is really no reason not to comment to the powers that be about the experience.

Our aft rooms have been under the passageway along side the Promenade Lounge (Magic & Wonder). Except for occasional kids running down the passageway, we have not had any noise issues.

We had three cruises in stateroom 2560 on Deck 2 -- consider it one of our "homes away from home". It is just a couple doors away from the central elevators, and one easy flight of stairs up to the atrium and all the action. We love it!

We cruised on deck 2 on the Wonder last year and loved the location. I would advise you to take a good look at the deck plan for deck 3 and figure out what is above you when choosing a deck. we were directly below the hallway leading to Animator's Palate and we heard a smattering of footsteps every once in a while between 9 and 10 when late dining ended (it sounded like an occasional herd of kids running out) but it was totally quiet the rest of the time. No issues with engine noise at all.

However, we were on the second passenger deck on Celebrity a few years ago and we were directly underneath the kitchens and the noise was horrible! It sounded like giant metal trolleys being pushed across a tile floor and it went on all night!

From now on I will always examine the deck plans for the decks above and below my cabin before booking. That's probably why there is so much variation in the responses; there's a big difference between being beneath a nightclub or kitchen and being beneath other rooms or a quiet area.
