My fiancee and I are going on a cruise for our honeymoon. He has a really weak stomach and gets car sick/motion sick pretty easy. He will go to the Dr. to get the patch and/or medicine to take and I do know the boat is big and he probably won't feel it and everything, but we are getting a cabin with a balcony. Would it be worse for him to be looking out of the side or the very back of the ship? Thanks.

Everyone has a different opinion, but I prefer an inside cabin down low and in the center of the ship. You will feel a minimal amount of roll and pitch in this location and sleeping in an inside cabin is much more satisfying.

Just my opinion, so don't flame me for it.

Also, if motion sickness is a possibility, I would strongly suggest taking one of Royal Caribbean's Voyager class ships. These ships are so large that they are rarely affected by movement.

Have a great cruise!

I would agree with Tom. Middle of the ship, lower is always smoother, the higher you go the more you'll rock. However I would do an outside cabin, inside can be very dark and not to mention closed in! When he gets sick tell him to look beyond the horizon that should help a bit. We sail quite a bit and it will help to ease his stomach. Plus keep some crackers and soda water in your cabin at all times.

Enjoy your cruise

You also need to factor in where you will be cruising. I think (in normal weather) you will feel less motion in the Southern Caribbean than Eastern or Western Caribbean and less in the Western than the Eastern. Now, if you are doing a cruise from New York through the Atlantic Ocean to the Bahamas, the waters could get a little rough.

I definitely think low, interior, center is the best. But DONT travel on carnival. I love Carnival 2 death, but their stabelizers suck
