Default Room location on a ship

I was booking my first cruise today with a TA. She dropped our deck from level 9 or 8 to 6 indicating this was a much better choice. We are travelling on the Celebrety Summit in July. The initial room she offered was forward on either deck 8 or 9. By the time we finished booking, we had gone to deck 6 in the middle of the ship. I guess the room placement is better since it is away from the elevators. But is she right in telling us there is less up and down movement in that ship's general area?

Default middle is good

I get sea sick standing on a wet carpet but we have always booked middle and on the 6 cruises we have done on Sea Bourne and Silver Seas I have never felt sick.I have been told the lower down you go, deck wise the less movement one feels so you should be happy.

Fredr22r:

Your TA was correct. In the past we always stayed mid-ship, on Deck six on Celebrity's Summit, Millennium, Infinity and Constellation (all have the same layout).

Only within the past couple of years we found the "bonus cabin", some look for and accidentally find. Our favorite cabin now is Concierge Class, deck 9 - cabin 9038 or 9045. They are both forward, one Port and the other Starboard. The veranda has a bump-out, so it's almost twice the size of a standard cabin. Also, the view is wonderful, you can see forward and aft without any problem at all.

Yes, there IS more movement the higher you go. A good way to see this, when you're on your cruise - visit the Thallossotherapy pool in the Aqua Spa on a Sea Day. You'll see the water slosh all about, creating quite a show, lol. It really is more mild mid-ship and deck 6 is very nice too. There are some "bonus cabins" on Deck 6 too, with a larger veranda.

Happy Sailing!

Freddy, you have a great TA, totally correct to move you, a mid-level deck in the middle of the ship is the most stable cabin you can find, that is our preference on all of our cruises
