Thanks. Usually don't get seasick. I was just curious how bad the seas were this weekend with the snow storms up/down the eastern seaboard. But, I will buy some ginger tablets.

Thanks, Jim. That is just so strange. With so many kids on these ships, you would think they'd accomodate them by having juice all during the day.
