We always stay in the middle of the ship which is more stable.  Sorry to hear that pills didn't help your seasickness.  Not a great way to spend a cruise feeling ick.  We have also run into times when staffer pass off food as something else.  With me it was milk.  They kept telling we that the whole milk was fat free.  I don't think that they knew the difference.  After a few times, I just gave up drinking milk.
