Is thrre noticeable motion on Deck 10?

I booked  a 7 day on the Slendor today.

Now having some second thoughts....We dont like motion and have stayed at lower Decks.

We are mid ship...just not sure if Deck 10 will experiene noticeable movement and/or noise.

Dec 10 looks to be more forward then mid ship. If your very sensitive I'd suggest as low and as mid ship as you can get.

We were on Deck 10 on the Splendor. The cabins are forward, and we did feel some motion. We sailed in July when the seas were fairly calm. I purposely book high and forward cabins because we like to feel like we are on a ship rather than in a hotel. These are Spa cabins, so they are very nice. It was a very quiet location as well. Since it is one of the higher class cabins, it may be difficult to change cabins. I would suggest calling sooner rather than later if you decide to switch cabins.

On another note, I am very prone to motion sickness, so I start taking Bonine the night before we sail and every night of the cruise. If the seas are rough, or if we are going to tender, I take an extra pill in the morning as well.

I have never once felt the slightest queasiness. Normally, I cannot ride a ferry or any other kind of boat

without being miserable.

Good luck, and enjoy your cruise. We loved the Splendor!!

Depends on the weather.

it also depends on the ship and her stabilizers.

However, in general, upper decks feel the rocking more.

I almost always book a low deck just for this reason. We rarely experience sea sickness. Bring your Bonine with you just in case. Hopefully the seas will be calm for your cruise. Let us know how you do on the cruise. Deck 7 should have less motion than deck 10.

While it is possible that deck 10 would have worked out for us I decided to call Carnival this morning and I changed my room to a different room on Deck 7... that was my original plan and I just feel more comfortable with it.... I didn't want to spend a lot of time wondering what deck 10 was going to feel like so I'm happy with the decision.

Good for you! Now you can forget that worry and be excited while you plan for your cruise.

Yes thank you

I have been on 7 cruises. Never got even a hint of seasickness. This past April we went on the Carnival Triumph and stayed on Deck 10. I didn’t get real sick, but got dizzy and queasy and headachy for 2 days. Not ever staying higher than Deck 6 again.

Thank you for that comment....

We recently did a 4 day on the Inspiration...

Our room was on Deck 6 and we never felt a thing... one day we were up on the buffet deck and there was some serious rock and rolling....

I try to get as high up and as far forward as possible. There is noticeably more motion, but I tend to enjoy it.

(I have found that the more I drink, the straighter I am able to walk).
