Watching fireworks but NOT at the party?

Just wondering, is there anywhere other than the pirate party to see the fireworks? Deck 7 or 8 aft overlook perhaps? Our kids are not night-owls and I'm guessing after a long day at the beach, then playing at the kids club (we're hoping to get Palo reservations that night) that they will be exhausted and probably not up for the whole thing (and I won't exactly be sad about that ). But if it would be possible for us to sneak off to see the fireworks while my sister stays with them, it might be nice. I have no desire to fight with the crowds on the pool decks, though. We are on deck 8 aft starboard. I've heard we can't see them from our verandah, though.

Thanks!

If you go to the deck above the pool, you won't be fighting crowds specially if you move away from mid ship as that's where most folks are.

AFAIK, the fireworks are fired away from the ship toward the midship starboard side and up high. I would't think you could see them from an aft balcony. And, in some verandah rooms, DCL will leave a note requesting you NOT be on the balcony during the fireworks.

On the Magic & Wonder, we prefer deck 10 on the port side midship to view the fireworks.
