Neil & Ida Down - Answered a Question by bottrill (07 Nov 08 20:04)

Ships have improved in so many ways and smooth running is one of the improvements particularly with the larger vessels. If you hit stormy weather the ship may move about a bit but you are going in July when the weather in the Med is at its calmest so don't work yourself up because that will just make things worse. Most people do not suffer sea sickness even those who suffer from car sickness so just relax and look forward to a wonderful holiday. ..... Neil.

Sea sickness is mostly in the mind and in todays large resort ships should never cause you much of a problem. When you are onboard and all seems relatively calm, sit on the upper deck and line up the horizon with the ships guardrail. You will see straight away that the ship is rolling and pitching to some degree but the rest of your senses probably dont even notice it. Relax and enjoy it. Rough weather is a good time to catch up on sleep so you can party more when it all calms down.

I tend to suffer from sea sickness and travel sickness generally, but have now been on several cruises with no problem whatsoever. Before I board the ship the first day, I take 1 travel sickness pill - this covers me for the first day - just in case! By the second day I have my "sea legs" and have never had a problem, even in rough seas. Also the bigger, the ship the less you feel the movement - it's not like a trip on a small boat trip round the bay. I am now a converted cruise fanatic. Go, enjoy your cruise.

Just a point of interest. While I find Stugeron an good remedy - taken BEFORE you feel ill, a recent 'Mythbusters' programme dealt with motion sickness remedies and found that ginger pills were the most effective 'non-drug' remedy. Apparently used by Chinese sailors in days gone by. I haven't tried it myself yet.

I get car sick, air sick, bus sick just about all modes of transport! never been ill on a cruise even when it was really rough seas! Just to put your mind at rest take a packet of ginger nut biscuits and nibble for first few hours on board, and after dinner. Ginger really does work! Also your cabin is perfectly placed to avoid motion sickness. After first night you will definetly be fine!

Mysterious Myth or Superstitio...

By Alana Mills

Ahoy there!Sailors over the years have had many superstitions that they believed in. It is no wonder if you think about it as they navigated around the world with no satellites or ship to shore in-case of an emergency. Also, bear in mind as going to sea is one of the worlds oldest occupations, the time these myths were established, it is only natural that where inexplicable events have occurred, superstition and myth have played a major role in providing reasons for their occurrence.So here ...

My first Transatlantic.

By Steve Fuller

Steve Fuller's blog

I’ve just returned from my first transatlantic cruise. I’ve always wanted to sail into the U.S.A and fly home. To say I’ve been and seen my friends across the pond without flying. I have to say i did really enjoy it. I very much liked the ship. There were a couple of hiccups and if I’m honest I probably wouldn’t do a transatlantic again but I’ve ticked it off. Thais why you have a bucket list to do what you want to do and tick it off the list.It had been 10...

Naples a great port to visit

By Shirley McCue

Shirley McCue's blog

 I remember my experience of returning to Naples as a cruise passenger with fond memories. Most passengers were eager to scramble into coaches that would whisk them away to see the fascinating ruins of Pompeii or drive down to the winding roads of the Amalfi coast on their journey to Sorrento. This was not my plan as I wanted my family to experience some of my childhood memories. Naples is a large city steeped in history with lots of hidden treasures, some a little too far to venture to ...
