The swaying is just a bonus...makes the cruise last longer....but, alas, it goes away...but then again, you can book another cruise...Hope you had a wonderful time....Happy cruising..

You must have a lot of cruises under your belt, I haven't discovered that yet.

I usually get more swaying and movement after fishing in my boat for a few hours than a 7 day cruise....It must be the BIGGER boat....

Looks like we'll be on the same cruise. Happy cruising.

We just finished a cruise. I didn't feel the effects this time, though I have in the past. My partner felt like he was still sailing for a couple of days after this cruise.

Yes Sonny, we do have quite a few cruises under our belts but I will keep the number to myself. We do at least one a year. And if we are lucky we do more. Did 2 this year, 3 the year before. I wish everyone at least one cruise in their lifetime!

Cruise Fanatic,

Yes, I noticed that the other day. Have you been on this trip before? My wife and I were on it two years ago for our 15th anniversary. We just love the ship and the ports and decided to go back.

See ya,

Brad

Brad,
I haven't been on the Adventure before but have been on sister ships Voyager and Mariner. I have been on other cruises that left from SJU. I've been to all the ports before except Curacao.

See ya,

Brad

Your comment interested me because I was thinking that modern ships with their excellent stabilizers don't roll like they used to. After my last cruise on the Caribbean Princess I did not feel that swaying after getting off the ship as I did years ago.

Tonight I came across this item in the Canadian Travel Advisory:

B. Mal de debarquement syndrome (MDD)

Mal de debarquement syndrome (MDD) or disembarkation sickness is a relatively rare syndrome that usually follows a sea voyage but can also occur after extended train travel or motion in a slowly revolving room. Symptoms, which occur only after the voyage, include sensations of rocking and swaying and, usually, imbalance. They can persist for a month and up to several years (mean 3.5 years). By contrast, land-sickness (postmotion vertigo) typically lasts < 48 hours(62).

MDD usually affects women between 40 and 50 years of age. The cause is uncertain. Symptoms do not respond to treatment with medication active against seasickness or dizziness. Benzodiazepines seem to be the most useful treatment, perhaps because of their vestibular suppressant action. No methods of prevention are known(2).
