    best part of ship to stay for minimal movement

    Welcome aboard, Amy!

    You must be planning a magical Disney Cruise Line voyage! It's so exciting to browse the website and check out the activities, dining, and see how much is included in your cruise, isn't it?

    Once you've chosen which ship and itinerary you'll be sailing, it's time to book that cruise! You'll get to choose your own stateroom, so if you're concerned about the movement of the ship, I've got a few suggestions. The ships are large, which means you'll feel much less movement if any, than you would in a small boat. But, when the seas are rough, you may sway a bit as you walk down the halls. The center of the ship is the part where you'll feel the least movement, so look for a stateroom in the Midship area, and on a Mid-level deck. We like Deck 6 Midship on the Magic and Wonder, and on the Dream and Fantasy, Decks 7 and 8 Midship are great too.

    Besides less rocking in those areas of the ship, they're right in the middle which means, it's so much easier to get anywhere you'd like. Since there are venues all over, you can quickly go up a few flights to the pool deck, up or down a few to the Youth Clubs and restaurants, and either Forward or Aft for whichever events you're heading to attend. Check out the ships' Deck Plans so you can see where everything is located.

    Please stop back with any other cruise questions as you get ready to set sail with Captain Mickey and his crew, Amy! We're happy to help!
