Anyone notice a big difference between mid ship and concierge?

We are deck 11 concierge right at the front of the ship last time we were midship and I still felt the ship on calm seas. Anyone done both and can comment on the difference? We are not looking at calm seas!

The higher up you are, the more you will feel the motion of the ship. That being said, we were deck 10 forward last cruise and the only time the motion was *really* noticeable was when we were going through a storm.

We have been on deck 12 forward on the Fantasy 14 nights no issues at all, one in our party gets seasick, but on lower decks! We have also sailed the magic on deck 8 no issues.

Actually the worst place for seasickness is in enclosed rooms at the waterline, where it is close to the movement and vibration of the sea, and close to the engines.

The cure for seasickness is fresh air and looking at the horizon things you can do on higher decks.

Seasickness is caused by the brain getting mixed messages, ears detect movement, eyes say walls do not move, you need to give it information to correct it.

Fantasy forward no issues at all, avoid Cozumel boats to mainland, as low and enclosed they cause seasickness. Every time.

NB we have sailed through the back end of a hurricane twice on DCL and best place, was our room, the restaurants on lower decks the worst place.
I have personally, seen it, done it, 151 days on cruises, 10 ships, 106 days on DCL ships, wrote the Blogs got the Mickey T shirts.
DCL Platinum Cruiser.
WDW, DLP, DL far too many times.

I felt the combination of being higher AND forward definitely increased the movement.
I could tell the difference in the motion between mid and fore, high and low.
Of course we had unusual seas for an extended period.
And I'm a sensitive guy.
