I need some advice regarding best cabins to choose for those that get seasick?
I heard the middle of the ship is best both in deck choice and cabin placement.
Is this true? Would an inside cabin be best for this? Thanks
Yep,,,they are absolutely correct. Low and midship. My wife & I have been on nearly 100 cruises, and she still takes Bonine every morning, whether she thinks she needs it or not. The worst thing that can happen is that she may get a little sleepy. What the heck, she is there to relax anyway!!!!! Don't worry about sea sickness, and enjoy the cruise!
I know what everyone else is saying but I cruised and had an inside cabin lower deck, and really felt the motion of the ship. I was told to go up on deck and look at the horizon or slightly above.I felt better on the upper decks in the largest areas of the ship such as the pool deck or dining room. I also thought the closer you are to the engines the more you feel the roll of the ship?
Im cruising again soon, this time I booked an outside cabin, as I found the inside like a dark cave, and having no light in the morning then having to force yourself to wake up and turn on the bright cabin lights a very bad thing. Im also going to take Bonine before bed every night and ginger pills, and eat mints. Hey whatever works, I have the worse stomach. I will say however i did not actually throw up on my cruise because I took Dramamine, Bonine wasn't out then or I didn't know about it. Good luck, to you. I will post my results after my cruise.
No, unfortunately it doesn't help. I had the post cruise "cruise" feeling for about a week after I came back. I've heard others says to take Bonine or Dramamine as it can help.

Take Bonine about 2-3 hours before sailing and once a day after that. Definitely choose a cabin that is mid-ship.lower level, inside. Take a couple of small flashlights because the cabin is really dark with the lights out, but that's a very small inconvenience to not have the risk of motion!
I have been so sea sick that I had to be removed from the ship upon return, in a wheelchair! That was before I discovered Bonine! Taking my 8th cruise in 11 weeks! My daily Bonine and (cheaper) lower/inside/mid-ship cabin awaits me! :o)
