Living in the Baltimore area, you probably know what the ocean is like at your time of sailing. I know in New England it can still be pretty rough. The Galaxy is approximately 80,000 tons but she did rock a bit more than I had expected on our cruise at the beginning of November. There was remenents of a hurricane in the San Juan area (although our weather was fine). We did not get sick or notice a lot of uncomfortable people, we did detect the motion. Bring Bonine and sea bands as a precaution if you are worried. You will be fine.
Bon Voyage

You never know how the seas are going to be at a given time. We've sailed from NYC to Bermuda twice and found at least part of the time at sea to be a little rocky, but nothing major. I guess it depends how one reacts to motion at sea & if there are any storms around.
As far as Cat 2 on Vista deck, we've booked them twice & love them. They're 172 sq. ft. with plenty of sorage for everything. The balcony is 42 sq. ft.- with 2 chairs, 1 footrest, & a small cocktail table. Enough room to sit & watch the world go by but not enough to do a lot of entertaining.

Galaxy is a beautiful ship, you'll love her.

Have a great cruise!!!!!!!!

Having crusied out of NYC to both the Caribbean and Bahamas, I do know that whenever you pass Cape Hatteras, the seas are up.

All ships will have motion. The Galaxy has good stabilizers, but there will be rocking back and forthin all but the quietest of seas.If you are amidship, the motion will be less noticeable. The motion for me is very relaxing and I miss it now I have returned home. The veranda cabins on Galaxy are very nice and well worth the extra money.
