I am new to Princess, only have experience with RCCL and Celebrity . I have been researching prices on line for the Star Princess, for Nov. of 2004. I am seeing a mini-suite on the emerald deck for almost $2000.00 cheaper than a mini-suite on the dolphin deck. The cabins on the emerald deck ($838.00pp) are at the rear of the ship (aft?).and the ones on the dolphin deck ($2736.00pp) are mid ships. Are the aft cabins more prone to noise....vibration....pitch and roll... locusts?? Whats The Catch?
