You'll feel more motion in the forward cabins than the afts. The afts tend to gently rock you to sleep where the forwards just have more motion.

We had a full aft on our cruise last week and we loved it. Looking forward to our aft again in July.

Default Just one of Many Studies. Cabin Location Does NOT Matter

"BACKGROUND: The prevalence of motion sickness approaches 100% on rough seas. Some previous studies have reported a strong association between location on a ship and the risk of motion sickness, whereas other studies found no association. This study was undertaken to determine if there is a statistical association between the location of the passenger cabin on a ship and the risk of motion sickness in unadapted passengers. METHODS: Data were collected on 260 passengers on an expedition ship traversing the Drake Passage between South America and Antarctica, during rough sea conditions. A standard scale was employed to record motion sickness severity. RESULTS: The risk of motion sickness was found to be statistically associated with age and s e x. However, no association was found with the location of the passenger cabin. CONCLUSIONS: Previous research reporting a strong association of motion sickness and passenger location on a ship, studied passengers in the seated position. Passengers who are able to lie in a supine position are at considerably reduced risk of motion sickness. Expedition or cruise ships that provide ready access to berths, allow passengers to avoid the most nauseogenic positions. The location of the passenger cabin does not appear to be related to the likelihood of seasickness."

Irish, I have to lie down, your explaination is making me diizzzyyy

Good people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

Courage and perserverance have a magical talisman; before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish into the air.

Pick your company wisely! Hang around people who are going to help you become all God created you to be.
