I agree with the use of Stugeron, it got me through 17 hours of gales up to force 10 . I never even felt sick although we were confined to the cabin (and our beds) and were very uncomfortable. I was on them at the time for vertigo, the doctor gave me them. Take them and enjoy your cruise.

We cruised with cunard on the qm2 and there was never a chance of getting seasick. BUT just in case they have a doctor on board who will give you an injection which will avoid i.

I also suffer from sea sickness. The first cruise I went on I had to see the doctor and have an injection, which makes you sleepy. For the rest of the cruise I was completely fine. On my second cruise I took some pills that my local pharmacy recommended and I was OK, just a little queasy for the first day. But it has not put me off. I think after a day you get your 'sea legs'. Hope this helps.

I get extremely travel sick too - but I love cruising. They can give you an injection on board, which makes you sleepy, but I find over the counter tablets called "Stugeron" work a treat (and I've tried several different types until I found this one). Although the tablets make you sleepy, you take them just before you go to bed - so you get a great night's sleep too, and usually the next day, you're in port, so you don't need to take one. Also, because you start taking these just before your cruise sets sail - you don't end up feeling unwell. I've tried the wrist bands and ear clips too (natural remedies), but found these of no use at all. I cruise twice a year, and since taking the Stugeron tablets, have never been ill..... the only place I advise you to avoid is the Bay of Biscay - so if you're going to the Med - do a fly cruise - so you get all the fun, but none of the illness. Don't be put off - if someone had told me about Stugeron earlier - I wouldn't have had the problems I had for the first 3 cruises I did!!!!!

How Fred Olsen compares

By Charlene Thackeray

We are recently back from our first Fred Olsen cruise.Whilst this is the smallest ship we have been on as a family there were lots of great things and a few not so great things for us. We knew there would not be much for Charlie on board however he had a great time with all his new friends from the Entertainments team. I can honestly say the entertainment team were really friendly and put on some great shows. I loved how the stage rose in the Neptune lounge making it a great area for lots of ...

Sailing like a Celebrity Part ...

By Molly McIntyre

Molly McIntyre's blog

As I was only on board for two nights we did not bother with any speciality dining on this occasion so we ate in the main dining room which was amazing. We had opted for Celebrity Select Dining which means we could choose when we wanted to go for dinner and could just turn up or you can pre-book a time on your planner. We pre-booked 6.45pm on both nights. On arrival at the dining room entrance we were escorted to a table towards the back of the restaurant and were immediately greeted by two l...
