Try ginger (with a whiskey in it!) Anything with ginger is good, better than tablets!

Take tablets with you, by all means(the best over the counter are probably "Stugeron",or, if you have a history of serious travel sickness problems, your DR. may be prepared to prescribe "Stugeron Forte) but my advice would be at the first sign of sea-sickness, go to the Medical centre and have a phenergan injection It really is VERY effective; indeed you will probably be feeling better by the time you return to your cabin. that should keep you feeling fine for 24hrs and then if you still feel a little less than wonderful you can "top it up" with Stugeron. Hope this reassures you. Cynthia.

We did this cruise at the beg. of Dec. 08, there was only one night when it was rough enough for the people in the higher decks to complain of excess turbulence. This is why we prefer to be lower down in the middle of the ship. During the day at sea it was also a bit unsteady but not enough to stop us moving safely around the ship and enjoying the amenities and food. Regarding injections be aware that they can be very expensive and are not covered by most insurances. Ginger is good and the bands for your wrist are useful as well. Some people in the lower outside cabins complained of the sea at their windows making them feel ill so be advised to keep curtains closed. ENJOY - WE DID.

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

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...
