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.

Anyone for Tea?

By Jo Cunningham

MSC Cruises are taking British cruisers seriously and have announced that British passengers will be able to vote on the brand of kettle that is being placed in all cabins on board the MSC Magnifica.Having a kettle in your cabin has always been important to British cruisers. We are people that enjoy a cup of tea in the morning and do not like having to call (or pay) for room service to bring it. I am frequently being asked if there is a kettle in the cabin and it is only really the British C...

Port Or Starboard? Whats t...

By Gina Rowan

Gina Rowan's blog

I wish I had a pound for every time I have been asked this question. I could have sailed around the world in Luxury! Aah yes! but would I choose Port or Starboard for my cabin? Or left side versus the right side of the ship?I suppose it depends on where you’re headed. I know that quite a few seasoned cruisers swear by the Starboard side. Although it really depends on what type of cruise you are on.For instance, if you are sailing in one direction, North or West generally people pr...

My NON cruise holiday this Easter.

By Haydn Jones

Haydn Jones's blog

I’ve just come back from a family Easter holiday to Spain, surprisingly not on a cruise this time. My children are of the age where we have to go away during school holidays. We decided on Benalmadena, Spain as we have been before , its not too far, and the boys love it there. The weather was absolutely glorious, we were so lucky this time of year to have 10 days of boiling sunshine. Benalmdena is a town on southern Spain’s Costa del Sol, known for its beaches and the modern Pue...
