hmm the pills don't wirj for me really so i avoid them, I would generally say that it is better not to use medication to control your seasickness. Most of the time the isn't much turbulence and you will barely be able to feel the ship moving. However, if you do end up getting sick, just sit down and stare into the horizon. It also helps if you have some candy at the same time to distract your mind from the nausea: works the same way morphine does... enjoy!

Hey..I get motion sickness very easily, but out of all the cruises I've been on, I've very rarely gotten seasick..so hopefully you won't. My cousin sometimes does though, and just in case, she has these acupressure wristband things..even if they might be a hassle to wear, I think they work. I've also taken Bonine or Dramamine before, which works pretty well.
Also, as Rand said, staring into the horizon really does help! Good luck! =)
Ps: If you search for 'seasickness' on this board you can find some more good tips..

If you think pills will work for you take the less drowsy form of Dramamine, it helps a lot, i dont get sick but i took some anyway, my mom does though and it worked for her

When I went cruising.... I used these acupressure wristbands. They aren't very pretty... but they dont hurt and aren't medicine. They worked well. They arent a hassle to put on... they are very small... so you can carry them in a pocket or something. You can get them at Wal*Mart.
When you do start to feel that sickness coming on... GO GET SOME FRESH AIR!!!!
Hope I helped!
