Will I Get Seasick on my Cruise Vacation?
Not likely. Cruise ship itineraries visit some of the calmest waters in the world and modern technology allows the captain to avoid inclement weather. Modern ships also have stabilizers…much like wings under the water, they reduce rocking motion. In the unlikely event that you do become ill, all cruise ships provide free motion sickness pills (Bonine) upon request. ShipOuts.com prefers to buy the motion sickness wrist bands that are available "over the counter" at all pharmacies. They work by pushing on a pressure point in the wrist that alleviates nausea. It is amazing how well they work! Buy them before you depart, though, since they will be more expensive on the ship or in your ports during your cruise vacation.
