Sea sickness cure

I’m not the type to get seasick a lot but I do keep mint candies with me just in case. Works for other occasions as well.

The Seabands (wristbands) have worked for me on numerous trips where I had previously felt ill on cruise ships and ferries. The most extreme crossing I used them on was a ferry trip from Naples to Capri in a thunderstorm where plenty of other people were being ill. Seasickness pills just make me too drowsy and lightheaded which is ok if it is night but not if you want to enjoy the view.

The Ancient Romans used rice pudding as a sea sickness cure. Don’t know if it worked.

Stemetil works for Mr A. but you can only get them on doctor’s prescription. Apple and crackers, dried ginger and wrist bands did not work for my daughter until she tried Sturgeron which are available over the counter at the chemist. The latter do not make you sleepy either, unlike Dramamine.

I used to be very seasick (just standing on the landing stage watching the boats bobbing up and down did it!) However, now older and wiser, those wristbands certainly work for me, plus crystallised ginger, which I love anyway.

Mental is everything. Though try consulting with your local doctor too

A decent wellspring of pre-cruising guidance is your neighborhood drug specialist.
