Default Front of Ship vs. Back of Ship- Carnival Victory

Got our room assignment! We will be located in the upper front part of the ship. Will we feel more motion from sailing? Are rooms located towards the rear of the ship better? We sailed on the Spirit before and our cabin was located near the back of the ship> no noticeable motion/feel.

If you booked a guarantee, your cabin could still change up to the day of sailing.

I have been in the very most forward cabins on a couple of cruises, and have felt no more movement there than in mid-ship cabins or aft cabins. The only thing is that you might hear the anchor dropping when in a port, and it is LOUD. Lasts only a few second, however. I prefer the far forward cabins, as there isn't much hall traffic, thus less noise.

Thanx....I agree with you about the privacy thing> less hall traffic. I never thought about the anchor dropping, so I guess I'll know when I hear that sound that it's the anchor...Hopefully, I won't be nursing a hangover when it does drop 8)

Just got back from the Victory Western Caribbean cruise. We had a
Riveria deck mid-ship ocean view cabin. We had 2 rough sea days.
There was much less rocking and movement felt while we were in
our cabin. Last year we had an eighth deck balcony cabin in the
front of the ship and during the rough sea days, we really felt the
movement. From now on we will stick with a lower deck mid-ship.
Happy Sailing...........

Rule of thumb is the lower and more midship you are the less movement you will feel. Unless the water is rough you will most likely not feel any movement no matter where you are.

I personally enjoyed the movement we felt last year while cruising through 9ft waves. It was just enough to rock us to sleep. We were on the 8th deck near the Atrium.
