I have 2 children ages 8 & 11 yrs. We went on a short cruise over to the Bahamas from Ft.Lauderdale....only about 5 1/2 hr long. It was our first experience on a ship ( although it was not very big at all )...and sea was calm. We all did fine.
We are going on our real first cruise ( 11 night caribbean ), and I am unsure how we will fare.
I have a delayed reaction for motion sickness. I don't get sick like throwing up, and I don't feel anything while moving ( like a long roadtrip or airplane or even on boats )...however, once we have stopped, shortly after when we go to sit down or I am walking around, I suddently feel woozy & everything is going in/out & I feel like I am moving up & down. I finally figured out this is a delayed reaction.
Anyways...I am wondering what a 11 day cruise will do to me...will I feel the delayed reaction when on land, or will I end up getting severe reaction after the first day kicks in???
my oldest daughter 11 yrs, seems to possibly have motion sickness as well? But she seems to have it right away. Like road trips etc...she has to take gravol, becuase she doesnt feel well. Even thiongs I noticed like bike riding this year, she would complain about everything seeming to move & bubble, was how she explained it. So, I am wondering should I just give her gravol....or can kids take the ginger stuff as well??
What is recommended for kids ti take? Gravol works for her 7 doesnt make her drowsy BUT while I am ok giving it to her while in car, I think 11 days straight is something else...
PLEASE advise what is recommended for children.
