We were down low and it was SUPER stable. Everybody loved the gentle rocking motion, as if we were in a hammock. We saw others who had slept higher up who didn't enjoy it quite as much. I loved having the window, because you could look out and stabilize yourself.

The girl I recorded with in Nashville, Veda Radanovich, went on a Caribbean cruise and was seasick the whole time.

Well, I had only one problem ever until this cruise. The waters were really choppy but I was doing OK until dinner. The dining room was warm; we were being served too much food and the tomatoes and garlic put me over the top. When I returned to the cabin laying in the bed didn't help as I was rocking in the bed in the same direction as the ship was rocking. I got up and lay down perpendicular to the floor and then I went to sleep. I was fine the next day. The Baltic capitals were absolutely gorgeous.

Also, I am told that it is not wise to look at the horizon. And you're right, keep moving. If I hadn't gone to dinner and had I gone dancing, I would have been OK.

I'm going on my first cruise in December. It's an Eastern Mediterranean cruise. I've been on large ferries before crossing the English Channel, from Italy to Greece, and Germany to Denmark. I was always sick because of the diesel fumes. Do you have the same problems on cruise ships?

I've never had a problem with seasickness on a cruise ship, but my mother has had problems in the past. She's tried a number of different remedies, but Bonine always works best for her. It doesn't make her sleepy, like Dramamine often does, and it is very effective. Bonine is available at most drugstores. Cruise ships are very different than large ferries, so I've never experienced any issues with fumes. The best bet for people who think they may get seasick is to book a cabin on one of the lower decks in the mid-ships center area of the ship - and to come prepared with something like Bonine just in case. You'll have a great time!

Take ginger(in the form of a pill) at every meal. Start one day before your cruise. Also, the workers on the ships swear by eating green apples. Michele Harkins aka The Cruise Chic www.TheCruiseChic.com

My MIL's father was a merchant marine (early 1900). He told her to eat apples and crackers. She never gets sea sick. The ginger tea I brought along was very helpful.

Unless the seas are really rough, it is hard to tell you're moving on these big cruise ships. Some people can feel the slightest movement - I can barely tell we're moving. I rely on the scenery going by. <G> BellaOnline ALERT: Raw URLs are not allowed in these forums for security reasons. Please use UBB code.

Definitely book a stateroom in the middle of the ship. The lower decks are even more stable than upper decks. A window helps a lot as well. I've used Bonine before on very small ships and it works well.
