Default Aft cabins

We are going to the Eastern Caribbean, November 10 - 17, on Enchantment of the Seas. Does anyone have an opinion on the cabins at the rear of the ship? Are they noisy, or does one feel vibrations. I get a little motion sickness and don't want to have a "bumpy" trip.We will be on the Bridge deck so we will be up high.

Hi Peggy,
My daughter had one on Spendour of the Seas and absolutely loved it, did not complain about any more noice of vibrations, so go and enjoy the cruise. She especially enjoyed the large balcony! You may want to just pack some bonnine, for just in case, hope you have a smooth sailing, enjoy!

Hi
Just returned 18 March from Legend of the Seas, Aus/NZ.
At our dinning table was a man with 84 cruises. Most of cruises have been with RCI.
The only stateroom he ever takes are the varanda staterooms at the aft of the ship.
Says that location is the best.

I know our opinion will differ from most people but many people haven't actually been in the aft cabins for more than 1 cruise.

We usually cruise in suites on the aft portion of the ships. Our opinion is that although they usually have much larger balconies and less 'passenger noise', they are VERY noisy pulling into/out of ports and the ride is a lot more rough in the aft area. If you like sleeping in, good luck doing it in an aft cabin on a port day. It doesn't seem to matter if the ship is brand new with gas turbine engines or older. It's still noisy and rough.

Also, on some ships, there aren't aft elevators so the walk to the mid-ship area can be very, very long especially if you just need to run back to your cabin for something you forgot. It can really be a long trek.

For our next cruise, we're getting 2 balcony cabins that are mid-ship and adjoining. We're really looking forward to a smoother, quieter and more convenient location.
