Just got back from my very first cruise this past Saturday (9/17). Everyday since, I am feeling a bit dizzy and have this sensation as if I were still on the ship! I feel as if I'm swaying. This is making me feel tired with not much energy- I just want to lay down and rest my head!
Is this completely rare? Should I be worried? When will this sensation go away?
I suffer from this affliction as well. I have had it happen after a cruise and long train rides. I find that Claritin helps for me. Since bonine and dramamine are antiohistimines as well, they may have similar function. It takes me a while to regain my equilibrium. I remember the day after we returned from our January cruise, I was so exausted I had to lay down and take a nap for the better part of the afternoon. I was so glad we didn't jump right back into our routine when we got off the ship and took a little time to recouperate from our vacation. I am sure I would not have been able to function otherwise. I would not try to fight the fatigue, I'd go and try to get as much rest as possible until you have caught up.
Seriously... one of the best things for me about a cruise is the soporific effect you get on board from the gentle movement. Within two or three days even the most energetic type A starts wanting a nap every afternoon. Absolutely the best way in the world to relax.
