She was fine on our first cruise until the captain said something at muster drill, and she was all over herself about being sea sick, and we hadn't even left the dock. Each box, blue in color I believe, has about 10 pills, good for at least a 7 day cruise. Sorry about the spelling of the product, but it's close enough for you to be able to find it in the drug store part of your area's version of Jewel Foods.
Jim C. - 27 Cruises and I swear by Bonine. Haven't had to use it that much on ship - just when it gets really rough - but I need it for car travel (hills, etc.) and airplane always.

I have such a great time reading all the posts from you seasoned cruise veterans, imagine my excitiment when I could finally help answer a post. As a Nurse and seasickness sufferer I can relate to your friends. My first cruise I spend the first few days a lovely shade of green!

Over the counter treatments such as the ginger and the Bonnine can be very helpful for mild sufferers. However, for some serious sickness they may want to visit their doctors & get an Rx for something stronger. I personally find promethazine (Phenergan) very helpful. My uncle (and physician) often orders Antivert for his patients.

Good luck to them (and to you)

Amy
