forward cabins?

I am not new to traveling in Europe, but I am new to cruising. I can only book a forward cabin on Seabourne. I have read that this is the worst place to be in a ship, but I believe that all the cabins are forward on this ship. Are the newer ships smoother? I noticed they have some of their most expensive suites in the forward section. Any advice would be appreciated. I am currently booked on Crystal Symphony, but am thinking about switching to Seabourne Encore.

Are you familiar with Cruise Critic? They have a section with reviews of cabins on particular ships.

I don't know either of those ships, but some of the big ships have the suites with butler service up front, e.g. Norwegian Bliss, so the expense is due to the type of cabin and service.

I have been in a forward cabin on an old cruise ship and indeed there was a lot of motion and noise. Typically the midship and not too high gets less motion.
It also depends on your route and the ship design, so I can't really answer the question.

Thank you for responding to my question. I am mainly worried about getting seasick. The veranda cabins on the Encore are all forward, so I was worried about being both forward and higher up. Cruise Critic says lower, mid ship is better for seasickness, but the Seabourn Encore is a newer ship and I am not sure this still applies. Thanks again!
