I have been on many small habor cruise ships in Boston and didn't get sick, but is it easier to get sick on a big ship or small ship?
I will be going on my first cruise soon and am getting worried about this.
I strongly doubt that you will become seasick if you take a cruise. Becoming car sick while reading is because your body is feeling one thing while your eyes are seeing another. The only exception that I can think of is if you spend a lot of time in an inside cabin with fairly rough seas.
I would be precautionary and take Bonine (Meclizine) with you.
