    The ship is stabilized with anti-roll tanks and bilge keels to minimize the movement of the ship and prevent any unpleasant sensations or discomfort that may be caused by such movement.

If you are concerned that the motion may impact your cruise, you may consider picking up some medication from your local pharmacy to bring along.
