Don't drink.



Seriously if you are on a lower deck you will not feel it as much as on an upper deck. However the pool is on deck 11.

And depending on if your room is forward or aft will make a difference.

Best bet go to the doctor and have him give you some meds.

I fish spring, summer and fall. And have never had any problems onboard. If you can handle fishing in a small boat on a big lake in rough weather you will be fine

My wife has always been a little prone to sea sickness.On our cruise on Voyager, she tried the bracelets she found in the general store. Wow, they worked real quick...pretty amazing!

We were on the Enchantment last August on the New England cruise. Great ship! Didn't notice much movement with 3 to 5 foot waves. Snorkel Mich is right about being lower. Also closer to the middle helps. My advice would be to call your doctor and get "transderm-scop tts" patches. My wife gets motion sickness very easy and never when she wears a patch. It's a small patch you wear behind your ear and change it every 72 hours. She starts wearing one before getting on the plane to where ever our cruise starts. Ginger is suppose to work well also.

Regarding your question about the Enchantment being better than the Sovering... MUCH BETTER!

TexCruise mentioned the bracelets his wife wore
that he purchased in the general store. Was that store on board the ship? Thanks!

Yes, she found them in the store on board. I think they were $14. I told her she was wasting her money but hey....they worked. She did complain that didn't do much for fashion on the second formal night....lol

Thank you so much Tex! My hubby has the patch to wear but due to my medications I am unable to
tolerate it. I hope the bracelet works for me.
I heard the atlantic can get a little rough so I want to be prepared. Thanks again.

My husband and I take Meclizine every six hours during the day, and Dramamine at night. If we didn't, we'd both be miserable - but if we keep our medication levels up, neither of us has any motion trouble at all. (Patches and bracelets don't work for us.)
