I'm a first timer to this boad. I'm wondering if anyone of you out there has ever had this happen to them. In '82 I cruised the RCCL, Song of Norway, a beautiful ship, for a seven day Eastern Carribean cruise. While at sea, I was fine, even while visiting all the ports. The strange thing, though, is when I got off the ship and was home again, I felt nauseus, and had to go to bed for a day or two. I thought that was strange, had never heard of this happening to anyone. Any input on this? I'm cruising again mid June on HAL, and sure hope this doesn't happen again.
I have actually heard of that happening, not often though. I think your body had to adjust to being back on land, just took a day or 2. Hopefully this won't happen again, good luck and enjoy the cruise.
Hopefully it was just a one time occurance for you, but it does happen to a rare few - I've heard of it as well. I'm fortunate to have a cast iron stomache and have handled the roughest of seas with zero problems. After the cruise is another story - I walk like a drunk for a SOLID week, not just a day or two.... Hope you have a nice cruise and no postcruise problems.
I also went on a fabulous cruise 2 years ago & was VERY ill when I came home..I had a cold during our cruise but still went scuba diving in Cozumel...I had come too far & spent too much NOT to go diving! So I took extra cold med & had a wonderful time...but got a very bad infection when I got home....BUT as Cheri said, it was worth every beautiful moment of it, and I would have done it again!
This happens to me also. I've been on three cruises and it's happened every time.
When we get off the ship to go into port, I have no problem. But, when we finish the
cruise and I'm off the ship for several hours, I get very dizzy and lightheaded. I have
tried taking the seasick pills afterwards. It does not help. The only thing that helps me
is that it goes away eventually with time.
I am just getting over it from our cruise on the Destiny. We got off on 5/12 and I have it for a good week. I have vertigo (a balance problem) which makes the problem worse. I had to go to my doctor this time and got some mezcline (sp?) and that really helped. I couldn't (didn't feel safe driving) for 2 days because of the severe dizziness and spinning.
I never get sick on the boat just when I get back on land. Must mean I need to cruise more
