We’re close to booking our honeymoon cruise on the AOS on July 10. We are going to get a balcony, but I’m confused as to the difference between a Deluxe and Superior balcony stateroom. Is there any difference besides square footage?

Also, what is a good floor to be on in the Adventure? Should we avoid the promenade floors… try to be in the center of the ship? Fore, aft? Does it matter when it comes to rocking and rolling of the ship?

And also, how is the noise near the stairways. On one ship we were right next to the elevators, and we had noise all night long.

Thanks!!

Go to the cruise line's web site and look at the different catagories. Most of the time the differences are where the room is located. A lower class balcony will be at a lower deck and toward the rear of front of the ship. But at the same time your premium penthouse suites will be located next to the lower catagory balcony????

Reading that you have been on cruises before I think you should have most of the info you are looking for. Book a room that is not next to the stairs, elevators, above or below a restuarant, bar etc. You should also know if you prefer to be at the back, front etc

We were on the AOS last year and had an E category (Deluxe) room. My friend and his wife had a D category (Superior) on the same sailing. The only difference is the extra couch space (Category D has an extra couch seat - 3 seater vs. Category E - 2 seater). That made the room size different. Balcony size was the same. I had a posting earlier re: difference in Category E1 and E2 (NancyN helped a lot with her reply!!) Stay on the 7th or 8th Deck. We were in Deck 7 in the middle and it was great. Enjoy!
