Do you feel movement on the ship or is it well stable, i heard that if you are in the middle of the sip it is not "rocky", but if your in the fron or the back you can feel movement, Thanks for your imput hghrlr!!!!!

Generally true, lower mid-ship is the most stable, but it's still very nice being rocked to sleep. Don't worry about it. The people that I find have the most problems, are the ones that go in the idea that they will have a problem. You'll be fine.

If the seas get rough (usually over 10 foot swells) the cruise lines will make seasick pills - probably Bonine - available at the purser's office; you may be able to get them there even if it's a calm sea, though you won't need it then unless you are severely subject to motion sickness. You can also bring your own; they are available OTC at stores like Walgreens. That brand has worked well for me; others find the accupressure wrist bands do the trick.
I second Sue's comment, that if you don't worry about it, you will be fine. Have fun!

I get car sick (if I'm not driving) and very seasick. However, on cruise ships, it doesn't bother me much. I always take bonine with me, just in case. It is normally more helpful for tenders, snorkeling, fishing or dive boats; since those small boats do effect me much more. In the 8 cruises we have taken, I only got mildly seasick one time and it was on a rough night. I wouldn't worry about being sick; but would take bonine to be safe.

well we went on voyager the biggest and we heard the captain didnt put down the stabilizers to save gas because it produces drag and he gets a bonus on fuel consumption at the end of the year so for his bonus we got sea sick! well almost sea sick we were just swaying. But the last night he put the stabilizers on and felt nothing. Moral of the story bring dramamine!

Hatchbacktyper,
I almost didn't reply to the original message, because I hadn't been on the ship; but I have had such good experiences on larger ships and get seasick very easily. Thanks for the info. I always bring bonine anytime I get on the water.

That is a terrible bonus program if it effects the passengers comfort. Fuel savings are short term and passengers never forget
