Thanks! He would love to cruise for free, but I can't complain because his fare was cheaper than his tax and port. He might want to have his own cabin though (he is with his grandma and brother) should be pretty tight on this ship.
I'm with you on the countdown. The only time I have ever had rocking was on the way back to Baltimore from the Caribbean. We were returning on the Galaxy and going though Cape Hattersis. I too saw a lot of sick people. RCCL claims 5% rocking is the maximum for passenger comfort. Thats a pretty good roll on a big ship.
