We are cruising in a few days and it looks like there "might" be a tropical depression in the area. It is so hard to predict if a storm will be nearby I know... but I thought I might be prepared with some motion sickness rememdies just in case.
I have heard of Ginger, Dramamine, Bromine, Magnetic bracelets, Motion Eze.... Any opinions about these remedies or others you have tried???
Just remember, bromine is very good for sanitizing your swimming pool but it really shouldn't be ingested. You were talking about bonine. Don't sweat if you forget to bring motion sickness medication. Most ship's infirmaries dispense bonine or equivalent medicine upon request for free. Heck, if your seasick, you can't spend money in the bars and casino. They want you well!!
about three or four hours before the cruise I have a bowl of 15 to 20 prunes....I was given this advice by a fortune teller before I went on my first cruise.....and I have never had a problem with motion sickness
sometimes its nice to have them with hot custard,mind you I've only been on four cruises so far but it seem to work for me
Thanks for the advice.... bonine, not bromine.... got it.
I picked up some wristbands today from walgreens for motion sickness. We'll see.
If anyone is on Freedom of the Seas and happens to spy a couple walking around with wristbands, magnetic bracelets, and patches under our ears, popping ginger, bonine, prunes and green apples... well you will know it is us!
p.s. We will definitely be the ones hanging over the side after ingesting all of this!
