Hi rc, welcome to Cruise-Chat. We were towards the front of the ship on the Royal in December/January. She's a much smaller ship than the Crown and we were in heavy seas for the first 2 days. I can honestly say, I didn't notice much of a difference. I will qualify that statement by saying neither my husband or myself have any trouble with motion. We were rocking and rolling and the spray from the swells was over our balcony. I was also in the 400 section of the Riviera deck on the Caribbean Princess and felt no motion at all. The seas were pretty calm on that cruise. I don't think you'll have any problems at all. The Crown is a good size ship with stabilizers. Hope the weather is perfect and the seas are calm. If you have time, drop back by and let us know how it went when you return. Best wishes, and once again, welcome aboard!

That's one of my favorite locations on any Princess ship; you only have a neighbor on one side; very little foot traffic past your cabin; and very little chance of smoke wafting past your balcony. And even though you are up high, Crown Princess is big enough that you should experience very little motion.

We were in cabin R201 & the only complaint is that it's a long walk to anywhere on the ship. Motion wise it was better than an aft cabin with the constant shaking.
