Easing the Journey: Top Ways To Avoid Being Seasick
March 13, 2013

Whether you’re a seasoned cruise addict or a first timer, feeling a little seasick at some point is a real worry. Going a little green in the gills when you’re still trying to find your sea legs is thought to be part and parcel of ocean trips, particularly if the seas are a little rough.

Nowadays, the chance of getting sick aboard a cruise, particularly the larger vessels, is slim to none, but that doesn’t mean it can never happen. With high-tech gadgetry and technology that helps to realign the hulls, even the choppiest of waves barely knock the larger cruise liners, but it’s better to be safe than sorry.

Whether you’re aboard the P&O Azura on your way to Northern Europe, or you are planning on embarking on a cruise to faraway shores, there are ways in which you can try and avoid a bout of seasickness including:

  • Use preventatives – whether that’s the acupressure wristbands, natural remedies (including ginger) or over the counter seasickness tablets, there are plenty of things available that are tested successes.

  • Avoid end of season sails because colder weather makes for choppier seas.

  • Choose the larger ships such as the P&O Azura or the RCI Oasis of the Seas – the bigger the vessel, the less it’ll get thrown around. You can easily book a cheap cruise on a large vessel, online.

  • Choose a central cabin and you’ll be closer to the ship’s centre of gravity and therefore, will move around less.

  • If you are faced with a bout of seasickness, try and look at the horizon to try and recalibrate your sense of balance.

  • Avoid copious amounts of rich food and alcohol, because a hangover certainly won’t help a gippy tummy.

If you head on to your cruise prepared, you can tackle seasickness head on. Hopefully, if you book a cheap cruise aboard a large ship like the P&O Azura, you’ll have no problem at all – rather than concentrating on the horizon, you can just focus on having an unforgettable trip.
