I actually tried to google the location of the engines on the Fantasy and couldn't find any specific info. I'm not an expert googler though. I know the funnel shaft should be somewhere between port cabin R190 and starboard cabin R185.
I think the loudest ship noise I ever heard was in a porthole cabin on a Fantasy class ship when they dropped the anchor. I was wide awake after that. No complaints about it, we were at Grand Cayman and I wanted to get an early start anyway.
Thanks everyone. I knew that I would probably hear anchor noise which like you said that will be okay as we will want to get up and start our day. Just didn't know if I should bring earplugs because of engine noice. I have sure we will be just fine! Glad we are cruising!!
To me the vibes are soothing and lets you know you are on a ship.
Exactly. I like to hear the rumble of the exhaust through the stack and feel and smell things that remind me that I am on a vessel at sea. Perhaps the Machinists Mate in me from my Navy life (post-Marine).
Yes, I like that too. The last time we were on the Fantasy we were "delayed" on the Mississippi. There was a deafening silence if you know what I mean. My wife nor I could sleep until the engines cranked back up which was not until, best I remember, about 3:00 a.m.
