Last September, we went on a cruise to Alaska and my husband had problems with sea sickness.
NOW...I'm wanting to cruise round trip from Miami to the Carribean...but, understandably, he is hesitant.
I heard that the waters south are smoother than the waters in Alaska. Plus, we will only be at sea for 15 hours MAX and most of that is at night when we are sleeping.
Anyone have any insight?
I have cruised Alaska and to St. Maarten in the carribean. The waters were much smoother in the Carribean. However; time of year makes a difference. We did the Alaskan cruise at the end of May and the Carribean the end of April. You husband should take the seasick pills or patch prior to getting on the ship. Book a cabin in the middle of the ship on a lower deck, also bring crystallized ginger with you. I think that would help.
Here is a link to a crystallized ginger recipe. http://www.recipezaar.com/Crystalliz...r-Sugar-102933
Here is an article on seasickness, I hope it helps. http://www.helium.com/items/315247-h...ss-on-a-cruise

I only felt abit quesy once in the Caribbean. It was January, and cold...the ship was rocking and rolling, for sure....but other cruises in January had no issues....sail prepared, and, you will do fine.
Trip, with her book & tea!

Never book a cruise during hurricane season. Get a ship on one of the lower decks in the middle of the ship. My experience is with a newer ship there is less movement becuase of the new technology.
