I'd stay on deck 10. You won't have to take the elevator to the windjammer or swimming pools, they are in deck . Your cabin will be about half way between the elevators and the aft of the ship. There are junior suites across the hall from your cabin. I don't think price would change if you took a lower deck, it's a catagory "L" cabin. Catagory "L" cabins are 134 sq. ft.
