Post Aft-view Extended Balcony VS Midship Blacony

Hi everyone, I am about to book my first cruise on the Glory for May of 2011. I want a balcony room but which one do I choose? The midship balcony or the Aft-view Extended Balcony that is in the back?

I am worried about having motion sickness. No matter what type of boat I get on, it happens. I want a nice view, but do not want to feel the vibration, motion, or anything that may happen during my stay on the ship.

The midship balcony is on the 3rd deck and the Aft-view Extended Balcony is on the 7th deck. Which balcony would be best for me?

The carnival planner stated that I will not feel any motion or vibration or hear any noises on the Aft-view Extended Balcony-Is this true????

I want to be able to enjoy and relax in my room without feeling sick if the motion does happen, which balcony if anyone knows, please help!!!

Hands down, the aft balcony. I've never felt any more movement with a cabin in the back. You get the added balcony space, plus a great view. Normally, you'll have to walk midship to get to stair/elevator access, but worth the price. Go for it and hopefully you will not get sea sick.

personally i would go for the aft extended balcony, you get a larger balcony and you are up a few decks, closer to all the centers of activity on the ship.

If you are prone to motion sickness I would advise you to book the mid-ship cabin.

The motion in the aft balcony is not excessive but if you are extremely sensitive then you need to have as much stability as possible.

Take care and take the mid-ship cabin.

Without a doubt, you should take the aft balcony.
