Default Room position on Dream class

My DH and I are planning a Mediterranean cruise on the new ship Breeze for next fall. I would much rather go cheap on the room and spend the extra money on the shore excursions, so we are looking to book an inside room. My question is: would it be better to book a forward room on the Main deck, or a mid or aft room on the Riviera deck? Both are the same price. Thanks!

I would go mid-ship on the Rivera deck - a little less motion and perhaps less ship's noise

I third the previous recommendations. Mid ship Riviera.

We were aft Riviera on the inaugural cruise of the Magic in the Med and felt no movement whatsoever. As for spending money on excursions, don't assume that just because it costs more, it is a better option. We did all the ports on our own, which just requires a little research (which I have compiled on my website) and saved a ton of money as well as not having to wait for the slowest person on the bus to use the bathroom or shop. We could have our own experience in Europe, rather than share it with strangers. Please ask any questions!
