I went on a 2 night cruise from Sydney to Brisbane in May and the sea was quite calm but for a short time I felt a bit queasy (when I was in a bar watching an art auction. Maybe it was because the room was so stuffy and I was sitting on a high bar stool) so I went back to my cabin and took a tablet, that I bought from the chemist before my trip. It worked and I felt better within half hour but had an unbelievable dry mouth that lasted for ages! I was also wondering if it was the tablet that made me better or lying down in my cabin!
I am going on a 7 night cruise in Feb to New Caledonia and am a bit concerned that if the sea is a bit choppy I will definitely need to take something. (hope we don't hit a Cyclone!)
I have also tried the bands don't know really if they worked or not. I ended up taking them off as they were really tight on my wrist and left marks and were annoying.
Also am I better off taking something only when I feel the sickness coming on or taking something from day one?
Any tips or pointers on this will be very much appreciated
