What is aft facing balcony?

Why are aft balconies better?

Due to their location, aft balconies can be less breezy and, therefore, hotter than regular balconies as the ship’s structure blocks the wind. The view from an aft balcony is of the ship’s wake; the view from side balconies is better for viewing the port (and late-returning pier runners).

Is it better to be aft or forward?

If you suffer from motion sickness, or are a first-time cruiser and want to play it safe; it is not recommended you sail in a stateroom in the forward section of the ship. The most desirable location is a mid-ship stateroom, or if not available, a stateroom towards the back (aft) of the ship.

Is aft better than forward?

The forward is subject to the most movement out of anywhere on a ship. And the higher the deck, the more pronounced that rolling and swaying motion tends to feel. Movement at the aft is a bit less drastic than the forward, but still isn’t the most stable place for those who are prone to seasickness.

Is it better to be midship or aft?

Midship rooms, lower on the ship, are theoretically the best for minimizing motion. After that, I would say aft is better than forward, but that is my personal opinion.
