Frase 11-08-2004 08:56 PM

I just got back from my first cruise ever. Unfortunately I got a bad case of so-called "Sea Legs". That is what they call the condition. All I know is that it has been more than four days since I returned from my cruise and still feel the motion of the ocean. I still can't balance on one leg or change my clothes while standing. Funny thing is that I never got sea-sick and I did not have this Sea Legs condition while at the ports of call: Nassau and CocoCay. It was only after I returned home did I notice it. I heard that it will eventually go away. However, is there anything I can do to make this "Sea Legs" condition go away sooner?
Thanks in advance:

I don't know that there's any way to make it go away sooner, but it will abate, and shouldn't be noticeable within a week or 10 days. I have gotten it every time from a cruise, but each successive cruise the effect was less afterwards. I have even had the same thing from a long train ride (i.e. 8 hours)! It's just your inner ear adjusting for the motion, and now having to readjust to solid ground.

I have found just laughing it off helps - it's nothing to worry about, and will go away, really! Just think of it as a lingering memory of your cruise!
