Default Cabin under the Fitness Center??

I am sailing in the Jade (June 13th) and just realized me cabin (#11516) is directly under the fitness center. For some reason I never looked at what was directly above...until now. I figured it was just the pool and left it at that. BIG MISTAKE. Has anyone had a bad experience with the gym being right above their cabin??

Default Yes Not Good!

We were on the Sun in December and were right under the gym. It was very loud with weights being dropped etc. I would suggest moving to a different cabin if you can. This went on at all hours of the day and night.

When were on the Dawn back in 2003, we were in the last AG under the gym/workout area...It was not good....
Vibration and the noise were not fun early in the morning esp. after being out all night : 0 and it would happen throughout the day if we happened to be in the cabin...
The areobics instructor wore a hands free head set so we heard and felt everything.

Hopefully you won't be affected by this on the Jade!

Your cabin looks like it is right between some suite rooms, would they put these suites in a place where they will get a lot of noise?

I don't know but I hope it will be ok for you. I don't think there are many rooms left now for you to get a move, but it may be worth trying.

You're right, there aren't many cabins left...and no AFs. I am so mad at myself...I had my choice of any of them when I first booked. Oh well. Anyone have any positive experiences being under the gym?

I was under the gym on the Spirit and there was definitely noticeable noise from the treadmills. Luckily for me, I'm a fairly heavy sleeper but I'm sure a light sleeper would be disturbed.

We sailed on the Jade when it was the POH, last Sept, and were in an AB penthouse, right under the freeweights. After the first night, we did complain, and they closed the gym from 11pm to 6pm. Also, for the rest of that week, we used earplugs, which helped a lot!!!

Default I'm in the same situation

Hello Exarche02!

I am one cabin down from you and this is my first NCL cruise. I did not know this cabin was under the gym.

I called NCL and they told me that the gym closes at 11:00pm, so hopefully we can get some sleep

Guys...you are not making me feel better here! I checked and there is for sure no way to change my cabin, so I am stuck. Anyone ever have a cabin under the gym and not be bothered by the noise??

Unfortunetely it goes on all of the night because it's after hours that the staff,crew and dancers get to use it.

NOW you will have a fantastic cruise!!!

I didn't want to tell you that the walls actually shook when the free weights were dropped.....which makes you jump out of your skin at 5am!!!

Have a wonderful time!!!

Oh gosh!!! I am so glad I changed cabins now! Thank you for not telling me. It would have made me worry.
