Cures for Seasickness

I get really seasick on ship. There are so many "remedies" to choose from, but I'd like to know which of them really work. Do you have any recommendations?

With most remedies, some work for some people, not for others. Ginger works, sea-bands work, Dramamine works. Stay to the top of the ship when possible, closer to mid-ship, where there is less movement. Sip water, or clear soda. Light foods, no grease, no alcohol.
My ex started don't wait to take the dramamine on the day of the cruise. Take it a day or two before the trip to get the meds in your system before you sail. This seemed to work for my sister.
Thanks for all the tips, guys! I've heard great things about the wrist bands. I'm not a fan of taking drugs so going to try some natural remedies first.
