We are looking to book a cruise for next year and the cabin selection offered are at the very front of the boat on deck 7 and 9 (ocean view). Does anyone know if that would be a good choice or a no go area?

In general, the very front and back cabins on each deck are considered less desirable than the whole rest of the deck, because they're more prone to feeling the up-and-down and side-to-side motion of the ship as it cruises through the water.

That being said, on the newer, larger ships such as Mariner, there is less motion in those rooms than on smaller ships, but it's still there.

Booking one of those cabins would depend on whether there is anything else available for the date you want to travel, and how prone to motion sensitivity you are. If you do decide to go with one of the front cabins, it's thought that the lower down on the ship you are, the less motion you feel. Choosing between Decks 7 and 9 probably won't make a huge difference.

Are there other cabin categories available when you want to travel? Perhaps spending a little more to move more midships is a good idea.

Many thanks for the reply and the information was really useful. We have cruised many times and usually go for an interior cabin because in all honesty we do not spend much time in the cabin. This cruise will be my brother and sister-in-law's first and she wants to have a window and is really worried about sea sickness, so it sounds as if these cabins should be avoided.I will go back and see what other cabins are available.

If your sister-in-law "is really worried about sea sickness" she should get a prescription for the Transderm Scop Patch (that is how it's spelled). She should get this in advance so that she can try it out ahead of time on land.

Having this medication can make a night and day difference to those who suffer from motion sickness. It can save a cruise.
