I sailed Disney Wonder in 2002, had a stateroom w/ not even a porthole and felt pretty queasy the whole trip. We are sailing Enchantment of the Seas, RCCL, June 10, w/ a balcony, and im wondering, will this help me not feel so nauseous being able to see out this time, or make it worse?

Mostly depends on how rough the seas are. If you don't have a cabin located near the center of the ship you'll probably feel the same no matter if you have a balcony or a window. I'd suggest wearing a patch. Good luck...

I was wondering about seasickness, so we booked our room direct with Carnival so I could get one close to the middle. We did not do "guarantee" so I could actually pick the exact room we wanted...as near the middle on the Upper deck. We took Bonine (free on board) once a day and never got the least bit sick, not even a hint of being sick. I believe the Bonine helped, but our ride was smooth with no big waves.

Hi Rodney,
In case you didn't know, you can book an exact cabin with any travel agent too. My agent gets me an aft cabin if available, or a bump out. We usually book while on a cruise ship. That way we get a $100 on board credit. My travel agent still gets the credit for the booking.

Hi sonnyv. Thanks for the tip. Unfortunately, we don't have any travel agents in our area (small town) even though I could find one anywhere.(It probably helps to know them personally) so I am dependent on the internet and "do it myself" for my travel arrangements, ie. airlines, etc. So far, I have had good luck, but I will probably need a good travel agent in the future.
