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.

My Cruise Experience of the Tu...

By Richard Smith

Last week I sailed with Thomson Cruises on their new TUI Discovery 2 which has been recently acquired by Thomson and was formerly the Royal Caribbean Legend of the Seas.I hadnt sailed with Thomson before and although I had generally had a very positive response from my clients about them I had been a little bit put off personally by the smaller size and age of their fleet of ships.With Thomson now taking on some of these larger (medium sized in real terms) ships with a more modern design, thi...

Single Supplements Not The Fau...

Freddie Moser's blog

After having my head bitten off yet again this week for simply doing my job, I thought it was high time to set the record straight about prices and supplements for single travels and inform people of the role of the agent, i.e me.In the cruise industry we have many guests in the higher age range, down to the relaxing nature of a cruise, the luxury element, and a lot of the time, because the non-retired can’t afford the time or the money during their work schedule to take in a cruise.Nat...

Off to Rockley

Gemma Coles's blog

Well it is finally time for my holiday. I am off to Poole in Dorset tomorrow to stop at Rockley Park for 11 days. I am really looking forward to a break and spending some time with my husband. We have had a busy year so far and as I am heavily pregnant with our first baby due in August we haven’t been away at all yet this year. It has been so hot the last few days with the heatwave we had and now the weather is turning and the forecast isn’t great for our time away. I wouldn&...
