Cruisin' to the BahamasTuesday Feb 23, 2010
I’m going on a Spring Break Bahamas trip! I’m super excited, but the one issue is that we are going on a cruise. I’ve always had motion sickness, so I’m extremely worried about my health while on-board the ship. My friends convinced me to go on this trip, and I didn’t want to turn them down because I want to go on Spring Break ’10. They all assured me that you can’t feel anything on cruise ships. I don’t understand how that is true. There are days when the ship doesn’t even dock, how is it possible that I won’t feel the movement. And what if there is a storm? I pray that there isn’t for the sake of my tan, but what if?
So far I have taken a few precautions. My mom bought me those sea sick wrist bands. I’m not sure the technical name for them, but they look like sweat bands with a little ball on the inside. My mom told me the little ball activates a pressure point and you are less likely to feel the motion. I don’t know if I believe her, but it's some ancient Chinese remedy so I hope it works.
And if those bands don’t work, I’m bringing a stash of Dramamine. Even though that stuff knocks me out, I know it works. I will let that be my very last resort especially because I want to enjoy my Spring Break Bahamas trip!
If anyone has other suggestions for motion sickness please let me know. Or if anyone has more insight on motion sickness on a cruise, I would love some more feedback.
