On our first cruise they up graded us to the Riveria Deck, Ocean view cabin. We didn't know much about cruising so we agreed. They placed us in a rear cabin. It was very nice room but we had a lot of propeller vibration, and linehandling noise. For now on we always select a balcony stateroom located in the middle-middle part of the ship. In the middle part of the ship you are less likely to feel any viberation and less movement. My wife gets seasick without the patch. The sea doesn't bother me...I'm prior U.S. Navy Destroyer Sailor. Have a great first cruise.
We love anything assocated with crusing and traveling. We are retired U.S. Navy...and loving it, "Been there...done that"! (almost).
