The more you pay, the more you sway says Serene.
This is just a guess but I would say basic physics would tell you the lower you and go and the closer you can go to the center would be the most stable part. That may,,however, not be the best place for a cabin when you have to consider what may be below (or even above) you.Actually the bottom deck(s) are pretty quiet and a good place if you want something above and below you (below is the crew's quarters), however, it may not be the most convenient. You are further from the buffet and pool especially. Thats my biggest gripe, the long elevator ride.

Ah, take the stairs! LOL And just think of all the extra calories you can burn so you can then eat some more. HAHA!

another benefit to the lower decks is that it makes it easier to disembark at the ports of call, if you have a room at the very top, youll have a rough time because theres quite the line to get offMost cruisers don't think of this but it is so true....Heard people complaining at every port how hard it was getting on the elevator to go down....( can't believe they just didn't walk down)
I'm one of the lucky ones. I'm never seasick. In fact, I prefer it when the ship is "rocking and rolling" a little (or a lot). It lets me know I'm at sea, and makes for a great night's sleep!!!!
