Hi, just in case get a patch- we experienced a lot of rocking in a storm in the Caribbean, plates were flying off tables, we were dancing in the Disco and it was so funny to see, we were traveling across the floor - not by choice.
Anyhow, the patch has the side effect of blurred vision in some but it is a lifesaver when it comes to nausea. Call your doctor- have fun, Karrie
bonine----over the counter works really well and my wife and i have never experienced any side effects. we take one pill a day in the am starting on the day we fly and take our last one the day we leave the boat--we take them even on a shore day
we went through a hurrricane on elation in 98 "isis" when it got a little rocky there were sea sick pills and barf bags all over the place like magic, i did not think it was to bad as far as rocking, you did walk down the isles like a drunk but not that bad, if you get the chance go as far forward on the bow as possible the rain hitting you and the force of the wind it was like being hit with bb's, very interesting, but there were a few big bumps at night ,the wife wearing the wrist things did feel a little sick but she gets that way some times in the car. the ship was very stable it is still a fun topic at party's after all the years.
have fun no matter what
Bonine does well, but makes you drowsy. When we went, it was so rocky they had to shut down activities the first night. People could not stand up without holding rails, and there was puke in the hallways. You could smell it in the elevator (because it stopped at every floor, and every floor hade piles of puke). We could not even get off the ship in Grand Cayman, which is the very reason we chose that cruise to begin with. We had to stay on the ship for four days straight. We still had fun, hell, the food alone made it worthwhile. I spent a lot of quality time with the soft serve ice cream machine.
