We take our first cruise in June aboard the Fantasy. We have been assigned a stateroom on deck 10 (10618). I have been avidly reading these cruise boards and, thus far, have not heard anybody say anything positive about staterooms on deck 10 I read that you can get a fair amount of noise from the deck above. When is this at it's worst? I can't imagine it will be overnight or that it would trouble us during the day, as we will most likely to be away from our cabin, and enjoying the ship or the ports of call. If it is early morning I think we will cope, as my husband and son are both heavy sleepers and early risers. I am probably the only one who may be troubled by early morning noise. The other main complaint I read about deck 10 is the veranda overhang. I see us using our veranda mostly in the morning (for enjoying the coffee delivered in the vacuum jug the night before - see I am reading all the tips ) and maybe during 'getting changed for dinner time'. Will the overhang be a real problem? I was quite happy with our stateroom assignment until I started reading about all this, now I am not so sure!!! Has anybody got anything good to say about deck 10 or is it really that bad?
