Tour of the Ship:

We did have two cabins: 
E2-8538 Deluxe Ocean view Strm w/Balcony
H-4582 Large Ocean View Stateroom. 
Both at the beginning of the hallway - close to stairs and elevators - 4582 in a short hallway was located close to Centrum and 8538 close to forward stairs/elevators. 
I did expect noise from Centrum in cabin 4582 - there was a door between Centrum and the hallway - and absolutely no noise from Centrum activities!
Both Bathrooms did have sliding shower cabin doors.

We had breakfast and lunch every day in Windjammer Cafe - sitting outside on the aft open air deck.
Both for breakfast and lunch there are many different dishes to choose from - also many cakes / desserts!
Below some pictures of the offerings.
In the Reflection Restaurant there is a menu card every day, where you can choose from a variety of dishes. We had a 3 course menu each evening.
