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.
