My partner and I will be sailing on the Celebrity Solstice in February and want a cabin with a veranda. Motion sickness is not an issue and we were wondering on the pros and cons of the side of the ship versus the back of the ship for choosing a cabin. Any feedback is mucho appreciated. Thanks,
Paul and Marc
I've always thought it would be great to have an aft cabin however have been concerned about noise and vibration. It seems as if every time we head aft...it's pretty shaky and noisy. Maybe this depends on the ship?
The only time we had noise or vibration was when we were pulling into or out of ports other than that there was none. And there wasn't anymore motion than the middle of the ship. I would definately book an aft room again!

We had a nearly-aft cabin on Splendor (the last cabin on the starboard side). We had some rough waters due to a hurricane, but don't know whether we had it any worse in the cabin than when we were midship. What we did hear were the thrusters (if that is what they are) when the ship was being turned, it about shook us out of bed and we were on deck 7.
