What is the best cabin position for someone who is prone to sea sickness?

Hi,

the very best position would be an inside cabin near the intersection of the ship's length and beam axis on a lower deck (i.e. amidships). Generally, the higher in the ship you are and the more forward or aft you are the higher the motion.

Moya,

Besides the good information that Raoul gave you, I think you should consider the following.

Seasick Remedy:
Many people think about getting seasick. The best advice we can give you is to ask your family doctor for a prescription for [Transderm-SC 1.5mg Dis Nova]. This is a medicine which prevents nausea and vomiting associated with motion sickness. It is a small patch that you place behind your ear. The patch is good for three days, then you must replace it. It will stay on even when you shower. You place the patch behind one ear, the morning of the sailing!!! This gives the medication a chance to start working. Also when you have to change the patch, do it first thing in the morning. It definitely works.

I get carsick, seasick, and whatever motion sickness you can think of, I got the patch and I have to tell you nothing bothered me at all, I took a tender, a ferry and rode in a crazy taxi cab in bahamas, it works miracles, and its not worth worring about getting sick.
