Hi oceanliner5. Restaurant Deck is a good, central location. It's been a few years since I've been on Regal Empress, but I remember that this part of the deck was a stark white...none of those beautiful wood found elsewhere on the ship. But, I would most definitely choose Restaurant Deck instead of Decks A or B, as Decks A and B are maze-like and don't cut all the way through. But, how many of you are going, as the Category 12 cabins are very small.
