Welcome to Cruise Critic!
Which Ship are you cruising on? What itinerary are you cruising to?
The back and front of a ship experience a lot of pitch and motion during rough seas. You are better off trying to book a mid-ship location, this is the most desirable. You should try and take a look at the deck plans for the ship you are sailing and make sure there is not a public room above you, it might be noisy.
It is always best to try and book cabins that are underneath other cabin decks. You mention you are considering cabins at the very back, the aft cabin balconies? That location is very popular. Most balcony cabins will give you good sun either morning or afternoon depending on whether you are on port or starboard side of the ship.
