We were on the Golden in March 01 with an inside room. We found the room sort of ok.
we took that room because the price was right plus we did not spend a lot of time in there either. We prefer mostly to have a balcony. My wife got some motion sickness on that cruise but that was because we were going around a hurricane. You knew the seas were rough when they had barf bags at each ashtray around the ship plus the doors to the outside were roped off so people don't open them. Otherwise we could not feel anything because their stabilizer systems are really good. I usually bring Bonine with me any how and when I start to feel a little queezy I take one and no problems.
Hope this helps.

Maybe it's just me, but I find an inside cabin to be better for someone who tends to get motion sickness. I get quesy looking out the window watching the sea go up and down, up and down, up and down, up and down.....get my drift? I do better when I can't see what is causing my discomfort.
I tend to get any kind of motion sickness~air, car, ship, amusement park ride. After two cruises I've leaned the following;
Larger ships have less motion.
Newer ships have better stablizers & less motion.
Cabins toward the center of the ship have less motion. Lower floors & inner cabins.
Don't cruise during hurricane season (late summer through autumn)
Carry plenty of sea sickness medication in extra strong and non drowsy.
Get a patch from your doctor before the trip.
Ginger ale helps and is often available.
Ginger root capsules help only when the rocking is mild.
Sea bands are useless.
