I agree, Bob. The motion of the ship is so gentle, nothing compared to getting jostled in a sedan!

I'd hate to spend my vacation in the stateroom with my kids and myself sick

Hats off the the people who are cut out for that kinda work, they are crazy.

I used the patch on the last cruise worked well for sea sickness but please be ware that if you touch your eyes your vision get very blurry and you pupil will get very enlarged for several days so put it own and wash your hands and not touch them after that. But they worked

I have to say I have tried the Dramamine, and prescription Meclizine ( I actually have Vertigo and that is what I have on hand at all times for that), I have tried the patch, and they all work but they all have side effects that are sometimes as bad as the motion sickness.

WHen I use the patch I get a horrid dry mouth and no matter how much I drink it doesnt matter.

I am scared though because I don't want to not take anything and end up sick as a dog.

I had heard about the ginger before but what kind of ginger? I imagine not the crushed spice I have in my spice cabinet lol.

Hi Nici, and Welcome to Cruise-Chat!

It doesn't usually bother me, except with rough seas. If I feel it starting, I take half of a meclizine (non-prescription), it seems to help. Have heard about the ginger too. They have it in pill form in health food/vitamin stores.

I am thinking of giving it a try as well. I don't like the drowsy feeling of the meclizine I get sometimes.

I recently bought some Airborne for my up comming cruise, it has ginger listed as an ingredient for nausea. Will see if it works as a preventative measure, if not I will head to the desk for some free meclizine!

Again, Welcome Aboard!

My wife swears by the ginger...we get it in capsule form over the counter at Wal-Mart in the vitamin/supplement section or at any health food store. It is actually a good daily supplement for digestive health. We take one daily with our other natural supplements (cinnamon, garlic, fish oil). Give it a try!
