Well Psimmons,having only made one cruise (Golden Princess/ Alaska Sept.'07) I'm definetly not an expert when it comes to cabin location. All I can tell you is that we had a minisuite on Dolphin deck D-409 that we enjoyed emensely. Granted when out on the balcony we could be seen from above but I didn't have the feeling that anyone above was that interested in what we were doing. After all it was Sept. and it wasn't like we were out on the balcony half naked trying to sun bathe. I'm sure you'll enjoy your cruise as much as we did.
