I was just offered a choice between a cabin on deck 10 or an equal cabin on deck 7. I chose the cabin on deck 7. Reason being the deck 7 cabin was at the stern (back) of the ship. Than cabin will have a larger balcony. To me the location of the cabin in more important that what deck the cabin is on. I'll take a bumb out or aft cabin on any deck I can get one.
