I suffer badly with sea sickness (even on a rowing boat!) I went on the destiny and found if i took one travel sickness tablet 30 mins before we sailed i was absolutely fine.

Get some tablets from the pharmacist and start taking them the day before you sail. Don't wait until you get sick. Take them every day (or as directed) and don't skip one! If don't you'll regret it! Forget the wrist bands - they don't work.

Hope youll forgive me for a little jest. Regarding armbands. (No they dont work. Husband will testify for that) We have seen so many with these on during the calmest of seas and say these really do work. Not felt queasy at all. Sea sickness is not nice Tablets DO help, but failing everything an injection from the Doc. will sort it.The only other thing the more cruises you do the more immune you get. Husband was terrible, but I kept booking these cruises and now hes brilliant. The armbands may work if you believe they will. Its mind over matter (Or so they say) Happy cruising.

For a 'belt and braces' approach you could try ginger in addition to the Stugeron. Crystalised ginger or ginger tablets (from health food shops) have been scientifically proven to work, even ginger ale or ginger nut biscuits are said to help. Have a lovely holiday.

Friendliest Countries in the World

By Zara Kelly

The inspiration for this blog comes from some clients who are travelling to Sri Lanka on holiday this year. I visited the pearl in the Indian Ocean a few years ago, and was blown away by how friendly the country is happy to chat to strangers about spices through to cricket, a passion there!I think speaking to locals give you a real insight into the destination. Other than Sri Lanka, the friendliest place I have been to is Japan, where people will literally stop you in the street if you look ...

Although in reality it is not really totally river cruising as the ships have been sailing from a UK port – Dover or Southampton.German Waterways sails ...
