Default Room assignment

Does it matter whether you are assigned a room to the front, middle, or back of the ship?

While the general "rule of thumb" is that midfship/low is best for people prone to motion sickness, I've been forward/mid/saft. No effect on me...and most others that will ever tsake a cruise on cruise ships today

A cabin at the very front of the ship (bow), or the very rear of the ship (stern) is sometimes more noisy than a mid ship cabin. When the ship goes into, and out of port is when this noise is usually heard. At the bow, the anchor chain is quite noisy (it'll make you jump right out of bed if you're asleep) and very often the thrusters both in the bow, and the stern are noisy going into, or out of port. Also, if you're on a low deck, and at the bow, you can very often hear the waves hit the hull of the ship, when underway.

For me I like to be in the middle of the ship.
I always book and pick my room to make sure I am
where I want to be.

Try to look at a deckplan for the ship and see what is above and below your choice of cabins. Things like the casino or the disco or the galley can be noisy, too.

My first cruise (on the Holiday) I had a cabin at the very back of the ship. The second night out at sea the ship was rocking and rolling, and the cabins at the very back of the ship pitch and roll quite a bit, at least I thought it did, I almost felt like I was going to fall out of bed!!!!! I also got the fright of my life when docking in Cozumel at 6am when they cast the lines out the are motorized, so the noise from that was loud enough to wake the dead!!!! The only days I got to sleep in were sea days. The day we docked back in Miami it was early, before 6am and I had gone to bed well after midnight......I can say that by the time I got home at around midnight (2am EST) I was a zombie. I could have slept on the plane but I was unlucky and sat next to two boys, both of whom I am sure were the sons of satan because by the time we landed in Toronto 3 hours later I should have been dragged off the plane in handcuffs for either assaulting those two little bast*rds or killing them......

The middle of the ship you feel the roll, but not any of the pitching up n down. Rather, you feel like you are being rocked to sleep in a giant cradle....

I prefer midship. I have found least noisy and for getting around the ship it is a bit easier to me.
