I was also worried about this on my first cruise 18 months ago to Carribean. Read everything I could and took tablets with me. We had one really rough day and I stayed on deck, didnt read and looked out to sea (this is what I'd read you should do)- I thought I'd be scared but I wasn't! I never felt a twinge of nausea (didnt have to take tablet). Partner who thinks he's a salty sea dog went to cabin and turned green!

Hi there, I have been on six cruises and suffered from sea sickness twice.First time was while going through the Bay of Biscay and second time while sailing to Barbados,. On the first cruise i had to see the doctor on board and was given an injection which thankfully worked within 10 minutes plus some tablets incase i needed them- which i did not. Second time I just took one of the tablets and had no more problems. i was advised that it is better to book a cabin as near to middle of the ship as you can, something we always try to do now.also the wrist bands were of a great help. hope this helps and have a great cruise, sure you will. hopefully you will not have any problem, i was he only one to suffer and there were four of us in our party.

I suffer sea sickness and my experience is that it is far cheaper to go along to your local chemist and purchase some travel sick pills and take them as directed. Check first to make sure they are compatible with any other medications you may be taking including herbal and homeopathic remedies though. Have a great cruise.

From your question it appears that you have already booked your cruise on the Independence of the Seas to the Mediterranean, so there really doesn't seem much point now in telling you to book a cabin as low down as possible in the ship and as near to the middle as possible? If you feel a bit light headed at any time, DON'T retire to your bed in your cabin! Go up on deck, have a walk around, and have a good look out to sea. Try to eat normally. Don't drink too much alcohol. It will probably take you a day or two for you to get your sea legs. Tablets and wrist bands can help, but don't just rely on them. I am sure that you won't even think about being on a ship for the majority of your cruise, the ride will be that smooth! Happy cruising.

Hi, I find wrist bands help a great deal, would not cruise without them! Have a great time.

We were talking about this when on Mariner of the Seas last week, and the level of movement on the ship on the Med was the surface of a glass of liquid was virtually undisturbed, so it's unlikely you will feel ill unless you hit a storm. The best method by far are natural ginger capsules, start taking them two days prior to sailing and for as long as you feel worried. One of my family was so travel sick he had to carry a plastic bag on his daily school bus journey for years, and as an adult had to travel extensively for his job, when he realised he had to use the Irish Ferry from Holyhead in winter he tried the ginger capsules (being worried he took a double dose), he ate a meal on the ship and has never suffered since despite travelling in rough seas.
