Thank you for the input on N. Dawn, BillyBuzzy. I was hoping you'd stop by.
Honeymooner, I apologize for not getting to your questions sooner. There shouldn't be much noise from the Kids Corner and splash pool. The Kids Corner is behind a set of heavy doors, and the splash pool is rarely used.
There are two main pools on N. Majesty. They're pretty close to each other, separated by an elevator bank. Sometimes they designate one for adults only. Yet, don't expect to lay by the pool as the deck chairs are located one deck above. This is a major drawback of the ship, IMO.
Bars and restaurants. Some very nice choices. We'll start with the main dining rooms. The larger one, located aft, is original to the ship and has great sea views. Definitely go there for breakfast a few mornings... the service is attentive and the food was great. (Macadamia nut blintzes were a favorite on one of my cruises. They get inventive.) The midship dining room has the same menu, but is more intimate. It was a later addition to the ship. Get there early, as it fills up quickly if you want a table for two. We also enjoy the Italian restaurant in the Observatory Lounge. You need to make a reservation. I suggest going to the desk in the main lobby to ask to see the menus for each evening, as they do change. There is also a nice bar in here.
We also enjoy the bar in the Rendezvous Lounge. It's rather large... one side was designated smoking, the other non-smoking as of our last sailing. The seating area runs the width of the ship, and is sectioned off into smaller rooms. This and the Observatory Lounge were our favorite bars. The one off the casino tended to get smokey.
If they are offering the restaurant vouchers, definitely take advantage. We had a very nice lunch in Hamilton. We had to order from a special menu specific to the vouchers, yet it was still very good.
Sorry... have never cruised out of Baltimore.
