    We are leaving on a Disney Cruise this week on the Fantasy and are concerned that our stateroom on Deck 2 will be rough or noiisey Our travel agent told us that the lower decks are smoother. Is this true?..

    Hi Gloria,

    Congratulations on your upcoming Disney Fantasy cruise!  I'm so excited for you and your's a gorgeous ship, and you'll absolutely have a blast!

    I'll be honest with you, I've never stayed on Deck 2 so I called the cruise line directly to find out.  You should not be hearing any loud noises during your sailing except for the morning of debarkation.  Then you may hear (depending on your stateroom location) the luggage being handled.

    As for rough sailing, also doubtful...the best part of the ship for that would be mid ship.  I have to say that I suffer from really bad vertigo and always go with the seasick patch behind my ear so I'm okay.  My family however, is perfectly fine with the movement of the ships.  You see,  Disney cruise line ships have stabilizers (unlike other lines).  They also don't "cut" through the water.  The ships are painted with a special coating that skims the water surface.  Not only does that make it smoother, it saves fuel.

    I hope this helps Gloria.  Please let me  know if you have any other questions.  Thanks for visiting the Moms Panel.  Bon voyage!
