We did a 3 day land tour and a 7 day southbound cruise. First time cruiser.
I used the patch the entire trip. After getting the patch and reading all the warnings I was concerned and went back and spoke to the pharmacist.
Besides the first day being extremely thirsty, the patch worked wonders.
I would have never survived all the buses and train rides before ever getting to the ship!
The first day at sea on Sunday was the only day I really felt the rocking and rolling, but never felt it in my stomach. The rest of the trip land was always in sight.
Our last day coming thru the straits in Canada our ship made a 10 degree list! I was on the high end. But it didn't bother me and I wasn't scared, I think the patch had me mellowed out.
