We have been on Celebration in about that position & it was fine. I understand ( from the Captains question & answer session) that you only get quite a bit of vibration on the Celebration when she really has to get a move on at top speed to make up time on a long distance - because of the extra generator needed. This generator isn't used during normal speed cruising. We had this a bit on our Norweigan trip, but friends didnt' experience it in Egypt where the distances were short becasue the extra generator wasn't used. Probably there won't be many occasions in the area you are going to where the boat has to really "motor". Your cabin shoul be free from vibration as when it did happen it seemed more in certain parts of the self service dining room & the theatre venue. We never noticed it in our cabin & slept well. Also you are low down & stable. Being on that deck is an advantage when you want to get off the ship as the gangway is usually on that level. Despite a bit of vibration now nad then, we woudl still go on the Celebration again as everything was great ,from the service to the atmsophere. You won't regret your choice.

Seasickness injection available in medical centre for £16. Costs more if they come to your cabin and even more at night. So try to be seasick in opening hours! But worked brilliantly on my son. Vibration very slight. People like to find something to fuss about, I think! You will definitely have a wonderful time.

You'll always get background noise on a ship, even if it's only the hum of the aircon. What is intrusive to some people is not even noticed by others. I take Stugeron for seasickness (or rather to avoid it). You need to take it before you set sail and then use your judgement. Ginger tablets have been proved to work for some people and are not just an old wives' tale. The injections work very well (and quickly) but can make some people very drowsy. As one who has suffered (pre-Stugeron), drowsy sounds good to me! Have a good trip.

We have done this itinerary on Thomson Emerald and have also been on the Celebration twice. The vibration is not a huge problem and is more noticeable at the back of the ship. I always take Stugeron with me but have only taken it once in 11 cruises and that was on Sea Princess in a rough Bay of Biscay!! so don't worry and if it does get a bit choppy stay as low as you can (dining room rather than buffet for meals) and midships. the itinerary is absolutely superb we loved every minute of it!!

Thank you for your rather abrupt response - being new to to this website - which obviously you are not - didn't go back through previous questions just asked my own - which I understand is what the site is for!!
