Would be a quiet room if the weather is nice. When the wind is high, it causes all sorts of noises. Sometimes it sounded like the ceiling panels were cracking, sometimes, it sounded like the people above me were tossing around furniture. I couldn't sleep 4 out of 7 nights. Had to go to Guest Services at 3am the 2nd night to ask for some ear plug, but I could still hear the noise through the ear plugs. They had security come to check out the problem and tried to tell me it happen when the wind is strong. I told them this is not the first time we stay in the balcony, and we never have problem with the wind before. We also had family in the two cabins next door and they didn't have any noise issues at all.
Also hope that they replace the safe in this cabin for next guests, as it broke the first day. They replaced the battery, it worked for two days then broke again. When they finally came to open the safe, they offered to replace it with a new safe. We told them not to bother as we don't have time to wait on them and stopped using the safe for the rest of the cruise.
