Most reviewers say the vibration aspect is not as bad as some others have reported and if your cabin is mid-ship or forward no problems, but if you have a sea sickness problem pop into your doc's surgery and get prescribed something you could take with you just in case. We were on the Mercury last year and a few Ameicans had acupuncture for this problem and most reported it very effective but they never said the cost of the traetment.

Vibration is not generally regarded as a cause of sea sickness. If you know that you have a problem in this direction take advice from your doctor or pharmacist or look up the many and various answers, from ginger to acupuncture, in the "Find a question" section above. ..... Neil.

The answer is "no". I hope TA will permit me to refer you to the following http://www.holiday-truth.com/holiday_truths/cruise_reviews/43/ You will find lots of reviews of the Celebration with hardly a mention of either sea sickness or vibration. And Neil is correct - it is the motion of the ship which normally causes sea sickness.

Low deck cabins can experience vibration from the engines but this does not cuase seas-sickness. It can be a little annoying, though.

All Aboard The Caribbean Princess

By Pippa Hayden

Living up in Lossiemouth I had a training course in Glasgow on Wednesday and a training course in Edinburgh on Thursday but the highlight of my week has to have been my Ship visit onboard the Caribbean Princess. She was in port in Invergordon for the day whilst on her 12 night British Isles itinerary so I took the chance to hop onboard and see what she had to offer.When I arrived I was greeted in the Piazza by John from Princess Cruise and some othe...

Lovely Eclipse Weekend

By Lee Johnson

I have just had a fantastic 2 night cruise on the wonderful Eclipse.The mini cruise was part of my month long 40th Celebrations and was a little getaway for me and my partner. It is the first time in 14 years that we have been away without the children and although we missed them we had such a great few days.We started the break by heading down to Southampton, which is a bit of a trek from Barrow-in-Furness but I find it no problem by rail. I would recommend staying over in Southampton the ...

Silversea was not meant to be!

By Barbara Hopley

Barbara Hopley's blog

On Monday 22 May I was booked to go on a ship visit of the ‘Silver Whisper’ by Silversea Cruises. We get invited to see ships all the time but do them on our days off as too busy to take time out of a working week. That’s how dedicated I am to see as many ships as possible as so much easier to sell when you have seen them.I had been looking forward to seeing this ship as have never seen a Silversea ship, it had been booked for a few weeks and I made my arrangements at home ...
