I returned from my cruise two days ago. And I have been aflicted with the condition known as "Sea Legs".

I suppose that is the term used to describe the sensation as if you still on the ship eventhough you are on solid ground.

In my case, I would describe the sensation as if you are on a beach, in waist deep water and are being knocked around by the waves.

Funny thing is that I experienced it on my first cruise, and then now on my third. I did not experience it on my second cruise. So, I believe the location of my stateroom had allot to do with it. On my second cruise, my cabin was near mid-ship. On my first and third, my cabin was located all the way forward near the bow. So, for my next cruise, I will try to book my stateroom near mid-ship.

So, I was wondering if anyone knows a cure to this so-called "Sea Legs" condition.

A few days at work and on dry land usually cures it for me. If is still going on you may have water in your ear that is throwing off your balance etc.

How about hopping on another ship? That would cure you for sure!! Mine's normally gone in a couple of days, but I sure do ache to get back on another ship as soon as I leave the one I'm on. Happy holidays!

With me, it usually lasts a week, sometimes more. It seems to be lasting a shorter time the more cruises I go on - so maybe Penny has the right answer!

For me it lasted a week or so after my very first cruise. After this last cruise I didnt have it at all. Time cures all so hang in there. May want to try a motion sickness patch, dont know but it might help somewhat.

After my cruise 2 weeks ago on the Radiance, I only had a few moments of 'sea legs'. This was the smoothest cruise I have ever been on. I find that the rougher the waters the longer my 'sea legs' last.
