The "vibration" during docking comes from the "stern thrusters". For heavens sake,,, you are on a ship. Sounds like a wonder trip you had. Those stern and bow thrusters exert a thrust perpendicular to the ship, enabling it to maneuver to a dock without the aid of tugs. We rejoice in those brief reminders that we are indeed on a ship, at sea.
