Default cabin #628

Hello everyone....In December we'll be cruising on the Coral Princess for the 2nd time, but my question is this.....has anyone had cabin # 628 in the back of the ship? I'm told the balcony is larger back there. We're cruising with friends we met on our last cruise and our cabins are next to each other...they hv 626....I'm wondering if I'm going to hv motion sickness from being in the back like that...also..what is best to take for motion sickness? Thanks in advance [/b]

I'd recommend posting this question on the Princess board.

In general aft balconies are a little longer. Some ships are slightly terraced at the back so you might be visible from above. In regard to motion sickness, you will feel a little more motion of the ocean fore and aft than midship, as well as higher than lower. If you are concerned about motion sickness I'd visit your pharmacist before leaving.

All I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by; John Masefield

Like Green-Red says, yes, the balconys are generally larger at the aft end of the ship, and generally more private and with better views. I've personally never sailed "Coral", but have sailed most of the other Princess ships, and can say with authority that you're going to LOVE your cruise.
In reference to motion sickness, yes, you MIGHT feel a tiny bit more motion at the aft end of the ship, but certainly not enough IMO to change cabins. I'd recommend taking Bonine (Mechlizine) that you can get at your local drug store. It works, and it has almost no "sleepy" side effects. Take one a day or two before you sail, just to make sure your body doesn't disagree with it, then take one every morning of your cruise, whether you think you'll need it or not. You'll have a PERFECT cruise, with no worries about motion sickness.

I've never really felt more motion in the back. You will love the extra space and the views, just beautiful.

Enjoy that balcony, bet you love it.
