Default Cat 12 question

I'm in cat 12 room U70. It's the first balcolny on the foward part of the ship. ( Inspiration) I heard that the more foward you are the more motion there is. Would this be consiered a foward room? Would I be better off going more toward the middle of the cat 12? I do like the idea of sharing only one balcolny wall. I thought of taking the last room it's more in the middle but it looks like the elevator is right outside the door. Anyone??

Sounds like a cool room to be in. I usually do the aft balcony cabins but would like to try the one you have selected. Bob

The Inspiration has no aft balcony cabins.

Aerogirl,

We had Cat 12 stateroom U70 on the Elation, which is the sister vessel of the Inspiration. We had absolutely no problems with room movement. You will be fine with the room you have.

Strangely enough...we just had this exact same cabin on the Fantasy earlier this month!!

We had reasons for booking this particular suite.

I am not a smoker...so I wanted the FIRST balcony on the port side to try to avoid any smoke from the balconies "in front" of me...and that worked.

We found it to be very convenient and quiet, but the one down side is IF they put the adjoining door on the Inspiration like they did the Fantasy...if you have noisy neighbors....that adjorning door "might" be an issue.

We had wonderful neighbors...so it was not an issue....

But I prefer not to have adjorning doors...not even in hotels...

It has an adjoining door but I'm guessing it's like a hotel with a double door ? What do you think about the last room toward the back it lookes like the elevators are right there. Do you think that would be too loud ?
I don't know what to do. I wanted to do the last balcolny room but not sure of how the elevators are located.

To answer your question about movement. The laws of physics dictate that the higher and further you are away from the center of the vessel the more movement your will experience. To illustrate ,take a loaf of bread and imagine it is a ship hold it in the center, rotate the loaf, and notice the further from that point the more movement there is. The stabilizer systems in use today lessen that effect but it is still present. I wouldn't worry about your cabin choice unless you are very prone to motion sickness. Enjoy your cruise.
