I sincerely appreciate your advice on the wrist bands for my sons!!
I definately will go that way then! Could you give me a clue how much they are? And will they have to keep them on during the whole cruise while they are sleeping or taking a shower or swimming,etc,etc? Should I put them on before we even get on the ship or wait til they get out to sea and see what happens?
I didn't experience seasickness myself on my first cruise,but from what you said Mgram about the seas being choppy once you felt queazy. So,just because I survived the first time does it mean that I could still get it on another cruise? Sorry for so many questions!!! I just want to be prepared,I hope you understand! Thanks! You all are such great people here!! I just wanted to tell you that! :-)
Location: Greater Tampa Bay area (south of the BIG BRIDGE!)
Re: Thanks Mgram & Emma!!
I have only been seasick on 1 cruise out of 7.....my last one on Millie this past April. The water was rough from FLL to Bermuda and I was miserable. I put on my Seabands, popped a non-drowsy Bonine and in a couple of hours I was FINE. I don't know which one worked......and I didn't stop using either one for the next 13 days to find out, either!
They must be worn at all times, except in the shower and pool...they are stretchy cloth...like a headband and usually grey. The boys may want to give it a go without anything to see how they do....it's a personal choice. Follow the directions in the package....but I think after boarding, but before sailing is the time to put them on if they don't want to know what seasickness feels like. I plan to NOT start out with them whenever I cruise again......I think it was a fluke...and our cabin location....fully forward facing on deck 6.
The last time I looked at Wal-mart, I think they were $7.99 ... but they shouldn't be more than $10. Walgreens and Eckerd also sell them, I believe.
