LONG - Answered a Question by Culverhouse (18 Jan 08 23:57)

We went on a Baltic cruise in June 2004 and the North Sea crossing was perfectly calm but you can never guarantee the weather!! My wife is very prone to sea-sickness but was OK on this trip. However, when she does succumb, she generally has an injection which tends to make her very sleepy for 24 hours but she is right as rain thereafter.Despite being so prone to sea-sickness, my wife has never let it put her off cruising and we continue to be frequent cruisers.

I was on a cruise in the baltics last July and although the weather was not good (wet, cold and windy just like it was in the UK) the seas were not rough so seasickness was not a problem, However if it is there are various things you can use from tablets, to wrist bands to injections from the ship's medical centre if you get really bad. Cant say you wont get rough seas but dont let it put you off cruising. Even when it does get rough, not everyone gets ill and it certainly doesnt last the entire cruis.

Dont miss your ship.

By Dawn Gardener

Dawn Gardener's blog

For some reason, there seems to be more and more stories of cruise guests missing their ship when in port. I am on several cruise pages via Facebook and have heard this a lot recently where guests comment on how the ship departed leaving guests on shore because they didn’t get back in time. Last year there was the famous you tube video going around of the couple that left their kids on the ship whilst they went on shore and then missed it as it departed from Nassua with her screami...
