Talking Freedom
My wife is also prone to dizziness, but, as grandmag said, Bonnine is fantastic for her, and available on shore at many drug and grocery stores (we get ours at local Jewel). It's a once a day pill, WAY cheaper on shore than on board, and works wonders for her. Another consideration is the location of your cabins. Try and get a cabin mid ship, and some even say a lower deck level. Then,even IF the ship is movong for and aft, the movement will not be so easily felt. Also, just a little aside, they're called SHIPS, not boats. People use boats to drown worms catching fish (sorry, little ship humor there)

If you want to look at it, my review of the Freedom of the Seas is posted here
I am going to check it out

Thanks Jim1012 and Grandmag, I feel a lot better after reading your post. By the way, is Aug/Sept a bad time for Cruise?

Thumbs up Cruise
No, I don't feel that it is a bad time. It IS sometimes bad weather season, but two things I know-1) prices are alot cheaper then (Sept) due to weather season, and 2) Captain Johnnie once said "This is a ship. If the weather is bad over there, we'll go over here instead." Trust us all-you're gonna be hooked!! Have a great cruise!
