fotofan, we are doing a 16 day South America/Antarctic cruise on the Star Princess beginning Feb. 19. I have done a lot of reading and reports of others who have cruised, and it is hit or miss whether it will be rough. I know that Dec. thru early March is best, but some have still hit very rough seas and all have great respect for the Drake! You did not say (or I missed it) what month you are cruising. I am going, hoping for the best, with every possible seasick remedy in my arsenal. I usually do fine with my electronic wrist relief band, but for this cruise I also purchased MotionEaze which is a natural remedy you put behind the ears (a lot of people swear by it and you can get it at Walmart). I am also taking ginger tablets and generic dramamine along.
