I get very queasy too, but am generally OK on a ship as long as it is about 70,000 tonnes + I also recommend taking Sturgeron with you - they work brilliantly! I'm not sure if I'd recommend the Fjords as although they are calm, the North Sea can be horrendous; we travelled across in August and had a force 10 on the way back which wasn't very pleasant. The Med might be a better option. Also ensure you have a cabin in the middle of the ship, as low down as possible as this is where you will feel the least movement... and they'll be the cheapest too! Hope you have a great time!

There does not seem to be any correlation between car sickness and sea sickness apart from the workings of the inner ear so go, you'll have a great time. .... Neil.

I also get very car sick and this stopped me cruising for many years. I know how horrible it is. In the past 2 years I have been on 5 cruises with Ocean Village! I was fine around the Greek Islands - very calm seas - and then went to Caribbean but was very sick one stormy day ! I now always wear the wrist sea bands, and also take a half stugeron travel sickness pill each morning - this is also for any trips on coaches I may be on. I have been fine ever since. Cruising is fab - I would recommend Greek Isles as a good first choice. Get booked !

Pick a summer cruise, in warm waters (Med, Carib etc), on a big ship, amidships cabin and you will be fine!

Probably best to choose a bigger ship as small ones move around a bit more (I still prefer small ships). The Norweigian fjords would be a good start as you don't often get waves in fjords. I take my Stugeron before crossing the North Sea (just in case!) and then keep an eye on the weather forecast. If you feel sick the ship's doctor can either give stronger tablets, or the injection, which is supposed to work very quickly. There is a charge for this, but if you are ill it's got to be worth it. A tendency to car sickness doesn't mean you'll be ill on a cruise ship. On a large ship, half the time you don't know you are on a ship at all. Have a good time.

I have suffered with car sickness for all my life. Glad to say that cruising is no problem to me, I am always fine. I suppose everyone is different but my advice would be to go and give it a try. I love it.

When is the best time to book a cruise?

By Collette Apak

It’s a question that I am asked many times.Last week I spoke to a customer who booked a cruise way back last Summer with Royal Caribbean to travel this year. They received an early booking discount from Royal Caribbean (plus free parking from ourselves) and were outraged when RCI decided to announce they were now including a deluxe drinks package PLUS the second passenger goes half price. When we added the cost of the drinks package on to the price they paid for their original cruise th...

Toddlers and pools on board

By Kerry James

Kerry James's blog

Choosing the right ship for any age is important, but even more so when picking one that is suitable for children, toddlers and babies. Older children may want the kids clubs, some are just happy with the pool, or some might want more adventurous activities like rock climbing, ice skating etc. But what about toddlers/infants?Some parents with children under 3 might not want to leave their children in the kids club all day, and actually just be happy with a pool that the child can use –...

Sea Legs that is!?If you are a seasoned cruiser the chances are you have but not everyone can handle the ship’s movement and although seasickness is hardly fatal, with symptoms such as nausea, stomach cramps and vomiting, it can certainly put a damper on your cruise funThe thought of Seasickness can be enough to stop new cruisers even setting foot on a ship but there are a few handy tricks to ease you throughGenerally speaking being midships in the lowest part of the ship – the n...
