I've been in Aft cabins before on their balconies and although I am one of the rare few...I don't like them. I find that there tends to be extra noise back there from the ships motors or whatever, just creating more "water" noise then is to my taste.I'm also one of the rare few. I prefer to be mid or forward. The noise and vibration in the aft bother me.
I notice that the most expensive cabins..Penthouses, Garden Villas and Romance are in the very front of the ship. I can't imagine anyone spending that kind of money if they were going to be rocking and reeling all week. I know for sure that Hawaii would not be a good place to be in a far forward cabin, because you do get rough seas, ......We had a forward Penthouse (I think it was the 2nd door from the front) On our Hawaiian cruise - I loved it and I am extremely sesitive to motion. there was only one night that was a bit rocky but I saw people stagger all over the ship on my way to the room. I took extra ginger capsuls and had no problems.
