have been told by travel agent relative not to book cabins on either end of the ship but to get in the middle somewhere. she said will greatly cut down on seasickness if you are really prone to get it and even if you are not. thanks patticake. sorry for all the questions about cabins but i will be booking for 9 people of all different needs and want to have a good notebook on all requests when i book for summer of 2005 for family vacation. thanks patticake
You want to book in the middle of the ship, the lowest deck to have the least movement. Have fun being the "travel agent" for the family, that is a lot of fun, but can have a lot of headaches with it too! I always get the job in our family, and I love doing it.
Have a great cruise!

My wife gets seasick staring into the water while at the beach.
Last month we sailed the Jubilee. Older and smaller ship. We were at the front of the ship, only one cabin in front of us. I don't know what they're called but those little yellow pills the pursur gave my wife worked like a charm. We enjoyed having an oceanview and a bigger room.
And yes there were a couple of nites when it was rocky. But the motion of the ocean was no problemo.
We have cruised 3 times. We have had a cabin aft (noisy, vibration), a cabin forward
(room really rocks), and a cabin midship on the lowest deck. The midship lowest
deck was the best. Very little movement, noise, or vibration. I too get seasick and
found the forward cabins to be the worst. If you can't get the lowest deck , get the
lowest possible deck, midship.
