What is the best deck for a room on a cruise ship?
The lower and more central you are in a ship, the less roll and sway you will feel. Even if you choose a balconied stateroom, choose the lowest level and the most midship one you can find. The higher decks and cabins at the very front (forward) or back (aft) of the ship will rock and roll the most.
Are balcony rooms safe on cruises?

Is a balcony cabin worth it on a cruise?
Balcony cabins cost more than oceanview cabins or windowless “inside” cabins. But they can be worth the splurge if you’re the kind of person who likes a private space to be outdoors during a vacation.
Can you leave balcony door on cruise?
You might want to prop open that balcony door as you sail, but cruise lines aren’t so keen on the idea. For starters, the warm air coming in will cause your cabin’s air-conditioning to work harder (unless you turn it down), wasting energy on the ship. Plus, leaving the door open can have some unwanted side effects.
