The waves have to be very big for me to experience sea sickness. It happened once going around Cape Hatteras when the weather was really bad. The staff put out bags along the railings. My husband & my son were the very few passengers to show up for dinner that night. I always carry medication just in case.
Do you suffer from seasickness on cruises?
No, but my husband does.
So far I have been lucky and never got Sea sick. I can remember when I was on the Song Of America getting back on ship in Puerto Vallarta the Captian came over the PA and said "We are expecting high seas, if you have ever been sea sick please take your medications now. If you think you may get sea sick, medication is available at the Pursers desk for free. I would suggest that tonight is a good night to enjoy staying in your cabin and watching a movie. Room service can bring dinner to your cabin. If you go out of your cabin, be careful and only go out if you need to"
I was young back then and just drank enough so that I swayed the opposite direction of the ship so I'd be level. I had dinner at the MDR and hit the bars. I was rolled pit of bed that night as I slept.
I have been on 92 cruises and never got sea sick , I have been on ships in some big waves
I grew up in Vancouver B.C. and for a dozen years spent a great deal of time in Navy Cadets and on the occasional minesweeper. Never been seasick, and I expect I never will.
We’re lucky enough that we've never gotten seasick and we've been in some pretty rough seas. I clearly remember watching all the water tip out of the pool and wash across the deck; then it tilted back, refilled the pool and emptied out the other end! They had barricaded some of the doors so the water couldn't wash inside. We watched that over and over again for quite some time.
Fortunately that’s definitely an unusual occurrence in cruising. We've been on many ships where they've done an amazing job of keeping the ship “in the sun” while there’s poor weather nearby in more than one direction!
I think that one of the reasons that we all continue to cruise is that we are not plagued with sea sickness. Good to hear.
