Have you thought about asking your GP about Transderm Scopolamine patches. We are trying them for our next cruise on Ocean Village 2. The advantage is the prevent aswell as treat sea sickness so we are going to use them as none of us are particulary good travellers but we do love to cruise.

Duncan again! Forgot to answer this one. Most of the time we weren't aware of very much movement at all. All 4 of us felt a little strange the first day/night, especially when up high in the theatre but we didn't get seasickness. We acquired our `sea legs' by the next day though and forgot we were on a ship when inside. We had one rough night when we were aware of more movement, but we all took Travella Homeopathic Tablets (Boots) and had no problems with sickness at all. I understand that if you do have a problem, you can have an injection administered by Ship's Doctor. This apparently works immediately. We travelled in October and would assume conditions are a little more choppy that time of year. Have a positive mindset and you will be fine.

Sea sickness is a condition some suffer from others dont It all depends on your inner ea.

I've been on OV twice and cruised on other ships. I've never been actually sick although felt a little queasey sometimes. I think the key is too prevent rather than cure. I've found sturgeon works really well. However I'm going on a very small ship in the summer and as a precaution I asked my Dr for something. they can give you the same as an injection but in a slow release tablet form. By all accounts they are briliant. the only time you may feal something on OV is when the ship is on the atlantic side (Barbados) or when the Captain is going very slow between islands due to their close proximity and his doscking time - this is usually late at night. I'm sure you will soon get your sea legs. It really is an individual thing and of course much to do with the weather. Friends of ours were on the QM recently in choppy waters from the caribbean to New York and were ill!! So - just go prepared - try not to think about it and if all else fails just have an extra glass of wine or two and fall into bed.

No never, the ship has fantastic stabilizers fitted so it isvery rare for anyone to suffer, however there is a ships doctors on board although at £40 per consultation, i would suggest that you take preventive medication untill you get your sea legs.

Is River Cruising Accessible?

By Hannah Wilson

Quite simply, River Cruising is my passion, my favourite type of cruise. i have been lucky enough to do five river cruises to date and the next one can’t come soon enough. Top of my river cruising bucket list has to be the Mekong, gliding through Vietnam and Cambodia – one day I hope!You would think that river cruising would be perfect for people with limited mobility, smaller ships with less passengers on, only three decks etc, but is river cruising really ideal for wheelchair an...

Mini Cruise ? Taster Cruise.

By Nicola Milligan

Nicola Milligan's blog

Cruise Companies do offer itineraries for less than 7 nights. Some call them mini cruise, some taster but whatever you call them do not think they are a waste of time. For the new to cruise market this can be an amazing experience to sample the whole experience. For the seasoned cruisers who may have less time to spare these too will fit the bill.Now any duration shorter than a week cannot offer much variety of ports, however with a bit of planning you can get the most from a short visit. The...

Women Only Cruising: Sexist or Smart?

By Freddie Moser

Freddie Moser's blog

So I read a really interesting article recently about a tour company that is poised to start running Women Only Cruising.At first I thought, what a great idea, why should women be subjected to our bloke-ish ways on their holidays, and if the shoe was on the other foot and if the article read Men Only Cruising, i’d be thinking yeah that sounds like great fun, no screeching women, crying, nagging, handbags everywhere etc ………Oh no wait, I wouldn’t say that, because ...
