Please, please, please do not take our word for it go and ask your doctor or a pharmacist. We have no idea of your children’s health, demeanour or proclivities so don't trust us. .......Neil.

Hi, thanks for reply. I realise everyone is different and of course I will consult a GP etc. I simply wanted to ask if anyone had used remedies such as herbal/alternative to good effect. Ginger, I believe may be useful but in what form for children, I'm not sure. To the comment about claiming back £50 jab onboard with insurance company, I can't imagine you can do that. Has anyone tried?

A trial of alternative seasickness remedies was carried out by Mythbusters on TV. The effects of ginger pills (availble from health food shops or chemists) were quite convincing.

I have always used " Stugeron" for my young boys and myself and we have never been ill. The children enjoyed chewing the tablets as they are quite pleasant to take. I used to suffer terribly until I took these after some bad bouts of nausea, even on short ferry crossings. The children can take half a tablet as recommended on the instructions.

All cruise lines have medical staff-- doctors etc, & anti-sea-sickness pills are usually given free, & would be under medical supervision. Most people do not suffer any sea-sickness-- I have been on 4 cruises, & never came across anyone with this problem.

Having cruised many times before and spoken to many fellow passengers I feel that the best thing to combat sea sickness is to have the injection which is available from the Medical Centre if you are feeling unwell. A lot of travel sickness pills don't work very well unless taken regurally prior to travelling. You will have to pay for the injections (about £50) but this can be claimed back from your travel insurance. Happy cruising!

This may be fine for adults, but I doubt if the 4 and 5 yr olds mentioned in the question would be very impressed with having to have an injection during their holiday!

HI, we have sailed from Southampton many times with our daughter now 6. We all take seasickness tablets called JOYRIDES, go in to your local boots or superdrug where they both sell them, read the packet and see if they will be suitable but our daughter has always been fine taking them. Hope this helps.

I knew that there would be a lot of advice about this but you may find that the suggestion by "Bishop" fits into the criteria and it costs nothing to consult Boot's. or indeed any other, pharmacist. Regards. ... Neil.

According to the blurb put out by the American Space Agency, at the time of the Apollo programme, the only motion sickness preventative/cure administered to the crews, was Ginger in it's root form. The effects of drugs being unknown in space......Wilba .

Exciting news from a Celebrity

By Julia Rhodes

2018 is going to be an exciting year for cruising and Celebrity are really mixing it up a bit!For a few years now we have had the lovely Eclipse based in Southampton, which has been great as P&O, Cunard and Royal Caribbean notably dominated the port until the 5* Eclipse was based there. Just what cruisers needed. I even personally sailed on the Eclipse back in May for a mini cruise to Le Harve. It is a beautiful ship it has to be said and the food, service, cabins etc are all top notch. B...
