The room layout is the typical one for the category and class. What makes this room special is the veranda. The veranda is huge. It is partially covered with the overhang from deck 11. It features the white wall separators with lockable walk through doors to the adjoining staterooms. Furniture consists of two full chaise lounges, one small side table and two standard outdoor chairs. The view from the room is spectacular. When pulling into Nassau, you face the Atlantis resort. When visiting Castaway Cay, you can see the whole island. You can even view the Pirate Night fireworks from the balcony.
Because you are at the end of the ship, you do not hear "hallway traffic." We never even heard our neighbors. Being at the end of the ship, you do have a longer walk to the nearest elevator/stairs. Early in the morning (5 - 6 AM ish), you could hear staff cleaning and moving furniture on the outdoor deck upstairs at Cabana's. I am a light sleeper and I heard it, but it was not enough that I didn't go right back to sleep and it was only intermittent noise for 10 - 15 minutes. Because you are right below Cabana's, there are times when people from above can and will look down on your balcony. You can retreat under your covered area and you will hear people above, but again, it was not enough to disturb me or my family. One thing that we did find a drawback to the location was that we did have times when the funnel exhaust smell and particulate was bothersome. It make the veranda unpleasant, but the periods were short (2-3 hours one day and 1 hour another.) Because of the location, you occasionally do feel the engine vibration when docking. We were not disturbed by it and our daughter loved it in the bunk. I would equate the amount of vibration to having a vibrating massage pad on your back on low. Again, the duration was minimal (10 - 15 minutes on Nassau and Castaway Cay day).
Overall, I would highly recommend the room. It was the perfect size for our family of 3. I will continue to book the 5E staterooms because of how much we enjoyed the extended veranda, the chaise lounges and the view. We were able to put our little one to bed and let her watch cartoons for a bit while we enjoyed laying in the chaises drinking wine. My husband took an afternoon nap out there during the day at sea!
Last Tip -
We had the fruit and cheese plate and a bottle of wine waiting in our room at embarkation. We were able to have a picnic with our daughter on the veranda instead of fighting the crowds at the embarkation lunch buffets. It was completely worth the expense and was such a great way to start the cruise!
