Default Vertigo prone/ cabin location

Does anyone have insight into whether cabin location makes a difference for the vertigo prone? It would be VERY appreciated! Thank you.

Inside cabin, midship on the lowest deck is your best bet. Modern ships have minimal movement, so you really shouldn't have a problem anywhere. But, like you, I get vertigo easily, so better safe....which happens also to be the cheapest cabins. I got into the habit of booking those back when a huge cruise ship was 1/4 the size of modern ones and did not have modern stability technology. Found that I like the cabins anyway, since they are quieter. But, in today's world, I would not worry much. Take some bonine with you ust in case. Some ships give it away at the pursers' desk.

I don't have that problem but my husband does. What we do is book an ocean view cabin (meaning you have a window) midship. (an inside cabin in the same area would work also) If it gets really rocky you can still feel it of course but it is much less than at either end of the ship or higher where the balcony cabins are.

I have severe vertigo and I am constantly "dizzy". An inside cabin is the worst choice for anyone who has problems with vertigo, balance or dizziness. The reason for this is that you do not have an exterior focal point to focus on. The motion of the ship will conflict with what you feel.
Also,unless you leave a night light, TV or the bathroom light on, the cabin is totally dark and this will aggravate vertigo.

I had an inside cabin once and only once and not having an outside window was the main reason I will never have another one.

Go for the oceanview.

Take care,
