So do I, but hardly ever on a cruise ship, especially the larger ones. To be on the safe side I take Stugeron for the first couple of days. I also have battery operated "seabands" just in cas.

For sea sickness I highly recommend Travel Bands which prove very effective without causing drowsiness or other side effects.

Yes, we also thought we might be sea sick on a cruise, this is why we had never cruised until 3 years ago, but we have now been on 5 cruises (3 to Med, 2 to caribbean) and think it is a fantastic holiday, and have never suffered any sickness at all, but we did purchase the wrist bands from Boots and pills just in case, as I believe the injection that you can get on board is expensive, we did hear of people feeling a litle queezy, but this has not happended to us at all. We have ever experienced rough seas on the Med an we went in Sept/Oct time, and there is hardly any movement at night whilst in your cabin bed.

Have to be honest and say that we did a Med cruise in September and there were some very rough nights but obviously that will not always be the case, but please be prepared. Reception do supply sea sickness pills and the ship's doctor will prescribe an injection. If you still want to go ahead with the cruise, can I suggest Stugeron which you can buy from the chemist.. they really are very good.

Best Burger at Sea!

By Zara Kelly

Its been a few weeks since I have done a food blog, so I thought I would dedicate a blog to why there MUST be excellent burgers at sea!On a cruise you can never go hungry, food is plentiful but there is something satisfying about a good burger. I am no connoisseur, but my husband is. If ever I need to get into his good book, I know what to serve. I took him to an amazing restaurant for his 40th (see below!).I am a little bit of a food snob, but that all changed when I experienced Johnny Rocke...

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...

The Nightmare Of Packing For A Holiday !

By Camilla Edwards

Camilla Edwards's blog

Watching the Royal wedding this weekend, and looking at the lovely outfits, I started to think about what I am going to pack for my Azamara cruise next week. Choosing an outfit for any special occasion can be daunting, and time consuming, and a Royal Wedding must be stressful to say the least but packing, for a holiday is another thing altogether!The first cruise I ever went on was Fred Olsen Braemar sailing from Southampton. Packing for that was easy, just take everything you want as there i...
