A full stomach keeps sea sickness away. The less full you are, or if you are hungry, the sicker you will feel. I promise this has been tried and tested. Also get yourself on deck and watch the horizon!

Hi just read the same review we are going on Oceana after you and are not bothered at all it is pot luck the Bay is more fiction than fact?we went last year in Nov and it was smooth as silk came back in March Rough? the reviewer had a cabin at the stern of the ship so trust me it is the best place to get a good bouncing if the sea is bad,as for "it was built for the Caribbean" rubbish we have had 16ft waves in the Caribbean and we were berthed next to Oceana so it can and does cope with rough weather as they all do,enjoy your cruise take some pills just in case and stop worrying ?

A cabin at the stern or bow of the ship is the worst place to be during rough weather, think of it, being bounced up and down over 30 feet and at the same time swaying back and forth 30 degrees!, never mind any roll the ship might have. Midships cabins near the waterline have the least motion in rough weather. As for the ship being 'unstable', all ships have to meet the international regulations for safety at sea, if they didn't they would not be allowed to sail.

Having been on the oceana this year i never felt any movement at all, going to the med or coming back and it was quite rough going out.as i am very prone to sea sickness having been on the braemar which is a very small ship i chose the oceana for size as well as being told what a great ship it was,i need not have worried at all! you will love it and i am sure you will be fine.keep away from small ships unless you are flying out as i felt like i was on a fairground ride! booking oceana for next year. enjoy.

We have done a transatlantic on Oceana and not had a problem. It is a big ship and even when rough you dont get too much motion.

Oceana is a fabulous ship. Been on her twice. Had a force 8 from Barcelona to Monaco Husband didnt wake up at all. It woke me but didnt worry. She is very stable in rough seas . A lot of people get queasy in the calmest of seas .Need wrist bands and injections from the doctor. We have known people being queasy as soon as they have set foot on a ship before it has even left dock. Daughter has a great expression, Ooh! mum I've got waltzer belly! She is off on friday on Ventura I do hope she does not phone and say Waltzer belly again. But all in all the cruises she does are well worth a little discomfort. (After all she keeps going).

Don't worry, no one ever died from seasickness! One tip though, take the pill before you feel sick. e.g. before you sail if the weather forecast is doubtful and keep to the recommended dose. Have a lovely time, I wish I was going too!
