Neil & Ida Down - Answered a Question by lount (08 Feb 09 15:39)

I am afraid to say but there is some likelihood of stormy weather in November in the Med. It is a large sea 2500 by 1000 miles at the farthest points so a lot can occur in that sort of area. The most likely part for smoother sea is the South Eastern end but no guarantees. You may be lucky and have it smooth all the way, though. There is also no reason why the ten year old should be more susceptible to sickness than you unless you know that he already has suffered from sea sickness on a cruise ship. Other types of motion sickness do not necessarily mean it crosses over to sea sickness. Gloomy, possibly but I would hate to mislead you. ....... Neil.

I have posted a reply twice on this question but there is obviously a word or phrase which is triggering the with-hold for examination mechanism. My apologies in advance if you get two replies later. I do hate it when it does this as sometimes they never appear even when there is nothing controvertial or inciting competitive action ..... Neil.

Hi Lount, we are experinced cruisers and always take a supply of sea sickness tablets, they work well, and are fine for children in reccommended dose, don't usually get more than one or two rough days per fortnight, so don't worry Rob & brenda.

I do think that in the Med in November, there is certainly likely to be some bad weather. Eastern Med might be a better bet than western if you have the choice. If seasickness tablets don't work, go straight to the ship's medical centre for a seasickness injection. Sends you to sleep but works brilliantly.

The magic jab is excellent, although there is often a fee.

Obvious answer, I know, but you'll want to stick to the fly/cruise options, rather than UK sailings. Chris.

If you're only thinking of a Med cruise in November then don't bother. Sorry to be blunt but you will get rough seas. My relatives did the Med end of Oct/Nov 2008 and 3/4 of the cruise was horrendous. Also your 10 year old will not get sea sickness medication from the ships doctor because of his age. Instead he will be offered apples and dry biscuits (which do work funnily enough) Why don't you check out the cruise reviews on this site for Oct/Nov sailings. regards Ann.

Past Passenger Discounts for N...

By Jo Cunningham

The world of cruising has always offered past passenger dicsounts in order to promote loyalty but in recent years many cruise lines have scaled down their generosity. P&O, Cunard and Fred Olsen all offer less discounts now than then used to.MSC on the other hand, despite being one of Europe’s largest cruise lines are keen to increase their British customer base and are extending their loyalty scheme to non past passengers too.MSC have always had one of the best past passenger scheme...

Two nights on Indy..

By Alison Ranaldi

Alison  Ranaldi's blog

Last week I spent two nights on the newly revamped Independence of the Seas.We sailed from Southampton in glorious sunshine to Le Havre and back. This was my third time on board this ever-popular ship and I was keen to see the changes to her after a big refit. We had a balcony cabin on deck 9 which had everything we needed for a comfortable break. I’m not generally a fan of mini-cruises. They offer an excellent way for someone like myself to see the ships but I do not think they are a g...

Unless you have been oblivious to the cruise news of the last few months, you may not know that P&O are set to launch their new mega-ship in 2020.On Thursday 24th May 2018, P&O kept us all waiting to announce the new name after over 30,000 people sent name suggestions in on what their new lady should be called.An in a very different way to other ship name reveals, they had the help of TV’s very own Stephen Mulhern to help reveal the name all with a bit of magic…So What do ...
