Default ocean princess movement

I have been reading some reviews about the movement of the ocean princess,saying that it rocks from side to side a lot. I have a suite booked for a 4/9 10 day sailing in the back of the ship.Will this be a problem for me,we have always stayed mid-ship?Can anyone offer any input,I don't want to spend all that money and get sea sick????

Shelley,
Can't speak for the Ocean Princess, but was on the sister ship, Dawn, last year. Smooth as glass. If you are worried about being sick, go to the doctor before you leave and get a patch. People I've spoken to swear by them. Have fun.

I haven't sailed on the Ocean but have done the Dawn (South Caribbean) and recently the Sea (Mexican Riveria) and would rate them both among the smoothest trips I've been on. Both had some minimal vibration felt in the aft lounge but nothing really to worry about. This is a nice class of ship.

I have been on the Ocean either, but I was on a 10 day on the Sun, her sister ship. It was a wonderful, smooth ride the whole way. I am sensitive to motion and get sick at the drop of a hat, but I didn't even need mediation on this trip. Be sure to bring some Bonine just in case. It really works great.

Shelley,
I sure didn't notice any more side to side movement than any other cruise ship while on Ocean. I know you are not wasting your money, you will have a wonderful time, have fun!
