Ok I work in the shipping industry and just realized something today as I was staring at a pic of the ship I will be crusing on. I am the foward most cabin on the ship. If you look at a pic of the Norweign Spirit I am in the room above the E port side. Ok my question is this.. how much motion will there be? Some folks swear by midships others lower decks others say no diffrence? Whats the real answer from you cruising gurus.

Saying I work in the shipping industry is to let you all know I work containerships for a living and see what the sea offers to those ships so I was wondering about the cruise ship? Does the stabilzers negate the effects or is the bow going to be a rough ride?

Its a fact that the motion is less noticable midships, so if you run into rough weather there is a chance you will feel the piching in your cabin.

The stabilizers are mostly reducing the effect of the rolling.

I agree and know for a fact the front of the ship in rough seas is no where to be. I could not even stand in the shower on Celebration once going back to Jacksonville from Nassau.

Mid-ship and Mid-deck is the best. The front of the ship was going down and up at least 20-30 feet per dip.

The front of the ship will be bad if there are rough seas, otherwise it should be ok.

As for the stabilizers, those aren't used as much as people may think. They are not very fuel efficient.
