So my wife and I just got back from the AOS on Sunday (which was awesome once again!) So many people talk about getting as midship as you can to avoid getting seasick. Deck 6 or 7, midship. Well, my wife and I had room 1530, which was as far forward as you could go and as high as you could go, which would mean that we would get extremely seasick. BUT...with the way the ships are now, they are soooo stable. With the room we had, we had absolutely no foot traffic outside out room whatsoever. It's great for privacy and being able to sleep in late! Just throwing it out there for anyone question room choice. Hope it helps.

Marcus, thanks so much for that post. There is seldom a call I ever take that someone doesn't say, "I want a mid-ship cabin". Many have no idea why they're even asking for it, they have simply heard its what they should request. Many end up having to pay more and get up to a category where there are still mid-ship cabins available. The vast majority of cruise passengers don't benefit in any way from doing this but it's been discussed so much they feel they'd be making a mistake not to get one. By this practice being so common, when someone who really does need to be in the middle for a pre-disposition to sea sickness or mobility issues or whatever reason, they're gone very early. I personally prefer cabins toward the rear of most ships. The dining room and other things I'm always headed to seem to be in the rear of most ships. I have a long hike to get to the theatre but after dinner I need the walk. I wish there were more post like yours to reasure people that it really is okay to not follow the crowd and book what will best suit your needs and budget.

Cheers, Neil

I know this is the RCI Forum, but just to reinforce what Neil and Marc have said, my favortie cabin on Island and Coral Princess is the first balcony cabin, all the way forward on Baja Deck (the second highest). And on the other large Princess ships, all the way aft on Dolphin or Emerald Deck (the two lowest that have balconies).

Rick, now you've gone and done it. With all the folks that read this forum, you'll never get your favorite cabins again. Everyone will be booking Rick's favorite cabins! I would if I were booking a Princess right now.

Cheers, Neil
