Default Aft-view Extended Balcony VS Midship Blacony

Hi everyone, I am about to book my firts cruise on the Glory for May of 2011. I want a balcony room but which one do I choose? The midship balcony or the Aft-view Extended Balcony that is in the back?

I am worried about having motion sickness. No matter what type of boat I get on, it happens. I want a nice view, but do not want to feel the vibration, motion, or anything that may happen during my stay on the ship.

The midship balcony is on the 3rd deck and the Aft-view Extended Balcony is on the 7th deck. Which balcony would be best for me?

The carnival planner stated that I will not feel any motion or vibration or hear any noises on the Aft-view Extended Balcony-Is ths true????

I want to be able to enjoy and relax in my room without feeling sick if the motion does happen, which balcony if anyone knows, please help!!!

Conventional wisdom says the lower and more central your cabin, the less motion you feel. I'd go with the mid-ship balcony.

All I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by; John Masefield

I think the view from the aft balcony is much better, also, the balcony will be larger than the standard balcony. I have only noticed the vibrations when the ship is pulling into the pier, and even then it wasn't that loud.

Without a doubt, go with the mid-ship balcony.
