Hey guys, we will be doing out 3rd Disney cruise next May, and something on my mind is sea-sickness. The first trip was myself, my husband and our then 4 year old son, and the only issue was me the first night we sailed. The ship was rocking! Now last time, we had myself, my husband, our then 8 year old son, and a new 2 year old son. My 8 year old threw up in the elevator about 3 or 4 days into the trip, and the little one threw upon the table mid-meal. This trip, it is me, hubby, our now 14 year old son, now 7 year old son, plus my 8 year old niece. What do you do (especially for the kids) to avoid getting sick? Dramamine has failed for me before. TIA
There are wrist bands to help with sea-sickness and nausea. Ginger is a natural remedy. And, you can consult with a pediatrician about prescription medication for the kids. Many cruisers have the small round patch behind their ear.
Over the counter Dramamine and Bonine have done nothing for me in the past. I get prescription Meclizine (active ingredient in both OTC meds) which does work well. I also bought Sea Bands last cruise because it was really rough, more so then just meds could handle and the combo seemed to do the trick. I am tempted to try the Scopolamine patch for our cruise in October to see if it works just as well, but I want to try it before we leave to see if it gives me any of the side effects.
