True, it would have been really nice to have the banker + mailbox + tavern on the top deck, however, I am content with them making a room with banker + mailbox + auction together.
Besides there are always ways to minimize swapping through decks.
Just assign a specific deck (e.g. 1st upper deck - just giving it as an example as it contains the most room points), as your "interact-able" deck, so you can place all your bank+mailbox room / tavern room (Spirit binding area + tavern area are currently not working i.e. changing spells + recharging sp+hp,) / all restocking rooms (divine + arcane ingredients + ammunition + scrolls (when they fix it) + Crafting halls + etc etc. That way you will only need to click on the buff all button once .. go to the designated "interact-able" deck area ... restock, etc and be on your merry way (through a farshifter placed on a same deck to make it faster) .. Tis what we have it setup as on ours to save some time and loadscreens
That said, as mentioned earlier, it would ofcourse have been nice to have them on the top deck and skip a lot, specially with buffs being soo long ... just for an easy sell + repair.
But gotta admit the "non-disappearing on death" buffs are a pretty good addition ;-)

I want to hang out on deck ... not below decks its dark and I don't like it, please have a way to get the mail, tavern, auction, teleporters on deck.
It would be nice to have access to the mailbox, AH, a banker and a bar (iirc, a teleporter is unnecessary as that will come with the farshifter's chambers through the captain).
Turbine could make use of the existing amenities for this and continue removing at least a bit of plat from the game.
Technically speaking, the Top (Weather deck) is so dreary because it's not coded properly/not complete. Try looking down on your toons shadow, it's stuck in a base pose, as is everything else. Something is missing and causing it to look dull and dreary.
As for lacking things, I don't know what they Dev's have in mind for the top deck, but I too missed the quick and easy access to base amenities such as that found on the former layout of the top deck for the Stormglory Tempest (Bar, Bank, Auctioneer and Mail Box). Now it's one too many clicks to reach a location for the same thing (4 clicks total and 2 loading screens to reach lower deck). In less clicks and loading screens I could be in the other houses and doing the same stuff, only there's no guildies along then, and doesn't feel like a place of gathering. But that's just me.
Due to the lighting issue on the top deck only, I'm going to guess that the top deck is going to have an "Environment" buff or cosmetic that can be applied to it in the future.
Sunny. +5% Healing Amp, Regeneration (1hp), +5 Positive Spell Power, etc
Rainy. +1 Reflex Saves, +5 Acid Spell Power, +5 Cold Spell Power, +5% Cold Resistance, +5% Acid Resistance, etc
Snowy. +1 Fortitude Saves, +5 Balance, +5% Cold Resistance, etc
Night. +5% Incorporeability, +5 Spot, etc
With appropriate lighting and environment effects visible.

I guess then then the captain needs to be there too! Maybe I just want a big flat floating island/cloud and not a ship at all!
I like the new ships but having no hookpoints on the top deck is sort of a deal breaker for me. After a quest it was nice to hit my ship and buy/sell/repair/swap spells/maybe hit the training dummy a few times/bank ect. all without having to explore the depths of my airship. It would also serve as a sort of social hangout for the guild. If you they at least add a tavern to the top deck I could live with that.
