Default Teen Seasickness

I figured I'd start a real cruise topic since there really aren't many still alive.

Has anyone ever gotten seasick on a cruise?


I personally haven't, but I take prevenatives like Bonine and the Sea-Bands. Also, I have taken ginger altoids and that helps me a lot.

i normally dont. i use sea-bands too. except i went on two smaller ships one summer after another and i was very seasick on both of those. the seas were really rocky and everybody was getting sick. i dont suggest going on small sailing ships (thats what they were) for fun. the ports were cool but the actual sea-days were not. at all.

Were you on Windstar or one of those smaller lines?

They look like seasickness just waiting to happen.

I love watching the waters rock in rough seas. I was on the Monarch in April and we were in the upper observation lounge just watching the pool turn into a wave pool. It was amazing

You need to see your doctor to get a perscription for those. I might get them for my Alaska cruise.

i like how at night and the ship is rocking..and then that rocks you to sleep!

and i love trying to walk down the hallways during rough seas!! so much fun!!! if a ship was at sea for like the whole cruise...i would be so happy. omg transatlantic cruise here i come!!

and i always see people wearing those patches behind their ears!! they look rediculous..but i guess they help. and im pretty sure you can get them from the ship's doctor.

I love the rough seas!! I like looking up and kinda over and watchingthe edge of the ship move against the sky because you can really tell the you are in fact on a moving ship. I've never really gotten sea sick though but on my last cruise I got a little woozy one night when we diverted into some current to keep out of a storm and our stabilizers were broken.

Here is one thing ive noticed on all my cruises: Kids and teens hardly ever get seasick! Its always the adults!! My mom cruised during Hurrican Michelle in 2001? and she and my dad were seasick...but they said all the kids were still running around the ship!! haha

On the Caribbean Princess I wouldnt go in an elevator for like 2 days cuz the sea was rough and you could here them hitting the walls when the ship moved!!


I love the rocking of the ship, I wish my house rocked like that, or that I lived on a ship!!

If your house rocked like that...you could be in The Wizard of Oz. ill so take living on a ship. even though the munchkins were cute.

ok now you might think im crazy...but being in an elevator and hitting the walls sounds like fun!!!!
hopefully theres a hurricane during my cruise!!

Wherever there is a hurricane you will find me on a cruise ship! I have never been on a ship that hasn't changed ports of call due to a hurricane! I also have them following me! Its crazy! Thats why my mom said in december we need to go on a cruise to see if we get one..and trust me we will! But um, i love rough seas..but elevators in rough seas no thank you! Im already scared of elevators..and the crown princess ones made me even more scared of them!

i have never gotten sea sick... and never really incountered any hurricane problems but i came really close to it! i was on the conquest in 2005 the week before huricane katrina hit new orleans! literally 2nd day i was home from my cruise i heard on the news that hurricane katrina hit new orleans and that the conquest had to take an extra day at sea and go back to galveston instead of new orleans. it was crazy. my family almost took the that cruise too, but we chose the week earlier because i would miss like 2 days of school!
