We are about to book on the Triumph Feb22 out of Miami, western Carib. I have never before had issues with motion sickness until lately. So now I am looking for advice on what stateroom might give me the best ride, so to speak. I have had 4 bouts with vertigo in the last 4 months. I will be talking with my doctor about preventive actions for cruising, but a stable state room will help. My last cruise on Destiny was Port side as far forward as they had on deck 8. It was nice except the return to San Juan on rough seas was hard to take even then.

I was thinking mid ships, balcony no higher than deck 6. Or is aft a better bet?

A stateroom as close to the center of the deck is best for motion. Aft cabins will have as much movement as the forward cabins. Also, the lower down on the ship, the more stable. If you want a balcony room, the lowest deck of balconies is the most stable.

well my wife booked us in 7334. Not exactly what I asked her to do, but I guess it is OK, At least it is not to far forward or to far aft. She claims that deck 6 gets noise from deck 5, any basis for this that you know of?
