Default Cabin selection on Carnival Triumph


Hoping someone can put my mind at ease.
My husband and I are booked on the Carnival Triumph in Jan. and are assigned cabin 7422 on deck 7, 9a. which is at the very back corner of the ship. I am EXTREMELY sensitive to motion and was upset to learn we were not assigned a cabin mid-ship.

Can anyone assure me that this will not be as bad a circumstance as I dread? Or should I perhaps be calling Carnival and begging for a different room?

I would appreciate any reply on this topic or on how to best deal with my motion sickness.

If you are truly concerned about motion then the more midship and lower the better. I would also choose a room at the time of booking to avoid these unpleasant surprises. The bonus is that these cabins are generally less expensive.

You will feel the bobbing motion. I suggest calling your travel agent to see if they can get you a little more midship. Deck 7 is the deck with suites on it, so see if they can get you a midship on deck 6 or 8. Heck see if they will bump you up to a suite!

Some say that the lower the deck the less motion you feel. I had a low deck cabin on my first cruise and a cabin two or three decks up would have been better. I've had a Deck 8 and 10 and I really felt no motion, now I did feel the motion (which puts me to sleep) on Deck 3 in the main show lounge!!!!

Default motion sickness

I personally find the higher decks to be more stable than the lower ones. I do prefer mid section, but its more for convenience than motion sickness

The CAT 9 As are excellent cabins. Large and a larger balcony.

Normally I'd say you got lucky getting one. But if you are "extremely motion sensitive" you could have a problem.

Also better make certain you aren't placed in the aft dining room.
