Default sea sick

just wondering regarding the motion of the boat, the last time we went, one of friends spent a whole day in her cabin with her head on the toilet cause she got sick....we are taking our kids 11 & 3 - I do not want to spend my vacation in the cabin with a sick kid - can anyone tell me how well the kids react to motion sickness and should we give them anything prior to getting on the boat??

Our daughter, age 10, is prone to seasickness. We used the Sea-bands and a half of a motion sickness pill per day. No problems after that. Hope you enjoy your cruise.

I've read on here that ginger pills or candy work great on sea sickness.

You may want to post over in the health on board section for advice on seasickness or ask your kids pediatrician what they recommend.

i'm also prone to sea sickness, but i was fine. i had to take the occasional bonamine for land travel (car sickness is far worse for me) but otherwise, the boat motion didn't bother me. not sure if kids can take bonamine, but ginger pills (health food store) should be fine. I'd take some ginger, and some form of bonamine (ask doctor if not sure) just in case, but they may be fine. sea bands work well too. have a few options with you and hopefully, you won't need them.

..the correct spelling of "Bonamine" is "Bonine", just in case anyone was looking for it, and my husband and I always take it first thing in the morning and we've never had any problems...seasickness is NO fun!

You can get them at Eckards, Wal-greens, or almost any local pharmacy

I wondered about Walgreens....I thought Walmart would have them, but haven't found any. On my first cruise, I remember taking Bonine the first day, (just to be sure) and I think one night when it was a little bit rocky, but I don't remember if they made me woozy or not. I'd rather use something like the sea bands. Thanks for your help...

We were on the Paradise during the 10/26 cruise and our daughter who is 9 got seasick. Children cannot take Bonine so we gave her a dramamine tablet. They have a childrens formula, but since children can take the regular why buy the childrens which is more expensive. Plus the childrens has Phenyltronics (spelling). So the regular is better for them anyway. After about 20 minutes or so she was fine and didn't need it for the rest of the cruise. Good luck and hope you'll have a blast.

What is so weird is that when I get home after a cruise - I feel sick. It is like I am weaving. I have been on 5 cruises and it is the same each time. I think that I should continue to cruise all the time and maybe that would not happen.??????
