Default cabin level

I have heard a lot of controversy as to where the best layout of a cabin is. Some say for motion close to the front, middle or aft is better or some may say the higher the level the more a person can feel the sway of a ship. C'mon all you professional cruisers, can you let a 1st timer know which is better!!! Thanx!!!

Hi Dee,
Yes, its true, the more mid-level you are the less you'll feel any motion. Also the higher up you are the more you'll feel it. It also helps to have a window or better yet, a balcony to prevent sea-sickness.

Hold a pencil in your hand between your thumb and forefinger.

Wag the pencil.

Find your cabin. The closer you are to the center the less likely you will feel any of the movement around the axis. According to one old salt, just a little bit lower and farther toward the bow is actually best. Most of the time, this doesn't matter anyway since the ships are so stable. Hope that helped

I agree. These ships are so big and the stabilizing systems very sophisticated that most of the time you won't even know you are on the water. The seas have to be really rocking for you to feel the motion.
