Some of the older ships this is inevitable as they are not fitted with the new type propulsion gear, so you need to think a bit bigger to get away from these sort of problems there are plenty to choose from Celebrity; Royal Caribbean; Princess etc I know small should be beautiful but on the older type ships it spells problems, OK if you are a good sleeper, but if a light sleeper not very pleasant.

I fear that you may well be jumping from the frying pan into the fire if you are trying to avoid vibration. Just in case you haven't already noticed. These ships are twins! Both originally built for Holland America Line by Chantiers de L'Atlantique (the same builders as the QM2)in France during the early 1980s. The Spirit is actually a year older than the Celebration! Unfortunately they were a new design, and not very well built. Consequently they have both suffered from very bad vibration since new, especially at the stern. Maybe you should have another think? Happy cruising.
