We have taken many cruises but never had any trouble with high seas so I'm hoping someone can provide some insight.

I get seasick so we always book the lowest deck of balcony cabins and the middle of the hump if we can get it. I do find in rougher weather the lower, midship cabins seem more stable.Ditto.
I know about the physics and lower deck midship being the best for less motion. Well my experience tells me (and I know it´s likely a personal thing) midship as high up as possible is best. I´ve been on a couple cruises with really bad weather - think North Atlantic with fall storms and up to 40 ft. waves.That may be true for someone who doesn't get sea sick but it doesn't work for those of us that do..............
I don´t get seasick and even in that conditions I didn´t get really seasick, but there is this slight feeling of being more or less comfortable in different places. I felt much more comfortable high up than lower towards the waterline.
That may be true for someone who doesn't get sea sick but it doesn't work for those of us that do..............When it's rough I take to my bed. For me personally, I am less likely to get sick if I'm laying in bed reading or keeping my mind occupied in some way. If I'm standing up or sitting somewhere I tend to get sick pretty easily. Luckily I've only had one cruise where it was a problem.
People tend to worry about cabin location & forget that they're spending a lot of time out & about. Having the right cabin location is important but you can still have trouble when you're out & about.
OP you may also want to be watchful of the areas of the ship that have no windows like the casino & theater. After trying a lot of remedies, I do pretty well now but when seas are rough, I stay away from any venue that is completely enclosed. (even the elevators!)
