HI everyone, this will be our first cruise that I am about to book on the Glory with Carnival. We go on vacation once a year and this year I decided to take a cruise and now I am trying to decide on which room I want.
I am sensitive to the moving waters, but I will be taking motion sickness medicine on the cruise. I want a balcony because I love to just be able to walk out in the early morning or late night to relax.
My question is should I book a midship balcony because there maybe a chance of me getting seasick? or should I go with the aft cabin that is much bigger, but is at the rear of the ship on the upper desk?
I would really love to get the aft balcony, but I do not want to be miserable the entire time that I am on board. I have to be able to sleep and enjoy my room while I am in there.
IS there a big difference in a reglar balcony and the aft balcony????????????
The motion will increase the higher you go up and the farther away from midship. I'm assuming you are referring to the aft wrap around balconys which are considerably larger than the standard balcony, and the suite balconys tend to be a little larger than the standard. Take a look at the deck plans on the carnival website and you can get a better idea of the bacony sizes.
I can't tell any difference either between midship and the aft section when it comes to motion. I'd go for the larger balcony and enjoy the extra space. It also helps just having a window/balcony when it comes to possible sea sickness.
Luckily, neither my wife nor I have motion sickness. As the others have mentioned, we gravitate to larger balconies, such as the wrap-around balcones aft, or the suites, 'cause we also love bubble baths.
I went alone on my first cruise, with an interior room, which was like a prison cell. Since then, I have always had a balcony.
