As a rule cruising is a lot easier for people who may suffer from travel/motion sickness. I myself suffer from Travel sickness and have cruised a number of times. I recommend you visit your GP before you go and ask for the injection to help prevent Travel sickness.

A ship is a bit more stable than a boat of course, but you'll still get a certain amount of movement. I suffer from sea sickness myself but there are plenty of over the counter medicines that cure it. Ask your doctor or pharmacist. You need to start taking them before you board, because if you wait until you feel ill it'll be too late. Think 'prevention' instead of cure. Otherwise, you can normally get a jab on board, but this can be costly, and the tablets they give out at the purser's desk will just zonk you out. So the message is: sort it out before you go. Good luck.

Were Turning Japanese!

By Collette Apak

Collette Apak's blog

Over the last couple of years we have seen a huge rise in the number of people booking cruises that visit Japan. Maybe it’s the fact that many people have done the Mediterranean & Caribbean itineraries and are now wanting to look at somewhere different or whether a certain Joanna Lumley has prompted people’s interest after her TV series? Who knows? But in answer to this demand we are celebrating all things Japanese this week. I would certainly like to take a trip there and see...
