Default Upper / Lower decks

If the lowest deck is supposed to have less movement, why do so many want upgrades to upper decks?

Cherie, I think partly may be prestige factor. But mainly, I think it's because the pools, buffet restaurant and other entertainment venues are higher up.

I think Harry nailed it. The upper decks are closer to the action plus the upper decks are the decks that have the balcony cabins. I also feel that with the larger ships and stabilizers, motion and motion sickness are no longer a factor for most people. I prefer a view and I think the majority of people also prefer one. That is probably the reason why balcony cabins sell so well.

Take care,

We had balcony room on the 8th deck with another cruise line, was very nice. But is it an awesome view down closer to the water also? We have 2 rooms booked mid ship on lowest deck, I think would be awesome to sit an watch the water from your window or am I wrong an pray for upgrade? lol ty
