Wondering if there is a lot of motion felt on the Allure of the Seas? Can you get shots for motion sickness on the ship should the need arise?Under normal sea conditions you should feel little or no motion on Allure but if conditions should be rough there will be some amount of motion regardless of the size of the ship (compared to the vastness of the ocean, even an Oasis class ship is tiny). Shots are available should the need arise, but if you are especially prone to motions sickness you should start taking preventive measures even before you board the ship.
As for the shots, no idea. Why don't you get the patch before hand if you are concerned, they work well for most people.

We were on the final voyage of the SS Norway.
We were on a B2B on the Oasis this April and for two days there was enough motion that the Beach Pool sloshed enough to drop the water in the ends at least two feet (which was a lot of fun).
With that said, I easily get carsick and seasick and always take Bonine when cruising and never had a hint of queasiness on either the Allure or Oasis.
As several have stated, a huge percent of the time you have no idea that you are on a moving vessel.

My boyfriend took Bonine starting 5 days before the crusie, and every day during the cruise. He felt he only needed it on the boat ride to St. John on a excursion.
If you tend to feel seasick there are several medications you can try; some over-the-counter and some prescription. Try this list on drugs.com A friend carries Scopace with her during our cruises. If you want a more holistic remedy, I suggest a bottle red wine. If one doesn't do the trick, take 2.
Overall, I would assume Allure and Oasis would feel less than Freedom and we felt none at all. I saw many folks wearing sea sickness patches, but honestly, if you didn't look at the ocean passing by, you wouldn't even notice we were on a moving ship.
