For anyone who has experience cruising the Mediterranean--how are the seas with respect to motion. We are sailing on the QM2 this summer and I'm trying to get myself fully prepared for the motion (medication and all). I know it's usually dry (and hot!) but are the waters that rough??
Alot of it depends on what time of the year you cruise the Med. My wife and I did a cruise on Millenium last June ('03), and we couldn't have picked better weather. It was my first cruise, and I was a bit worried about motion, so I stocked up on dramamine ahead of tim. I couldn't have been more pleased with the voyage, however. The seas were COMPLETELY flat, and the motion was BARELY perceptible. It was ironic that we were well out into the Med before I realized we'd departed the first port (Barcelona). Throughout the course of the cruise, I never had ANY ill effects from the weather/sea state, and returned home with my dramamine contain full.....:-)
Go online to the Sharper Image catalog, they have a motion sickness wristband, it is a little pricey ($110.00) but it really works. I use to take the Bonnie, but is makes you drowsey, this way you can turn it off and on as needed.
Check out these wrist bands, they only cost $ 10 and do not need batteries. they are 100% resuasble and work very well and there are no drugs in them.
The company is in Canada, but I had the company send them to me and paid $25 for 3 pairs , they paid the postage. very easy to deal with.
the web site I ordered through is www.travelband.com
try it, they really worked for us. My wife even wears them now to get relief from her morning sickness. and my son wears them in the schoolbus every day.
hope it works for you, as we and our friends will not use drugs if there are alternatives working just as well or better.
good luck to you
