How To Prevent Sea Sickness

Now I don’t know if you have ever been seasick, but if you have, you know how awful it is. Working onboard a cruise ship it is inevitable that there will come a day that you will get seasick. Most of the time it is fine because these ships are so big.  You can rarely feel the waves but just in case it is not always smooth sailing, it is good to know what to do to prevent seasickness.

Be sure to book a room in the middle of the ship.  If you are at the front or the back there will be a lot more movement.

Green Apple
Whilst I have no medical evidence that this actually helps, friends and I have tried it and it seems to do the trick.

Sea Bands
Sea Bands (wristbands) have a plastic knob sewn to the inside of the band that puts pressure on the P6 acupressure point.   Pressure on this point has been proven to reduce the feeling of nausea.

Tablets will minimise the effect of seasickness.  Some may make you drowsy, so be sure to check when buying them if they are the ones that will send you to sleep.

Ginger Ale
Ginger Beer is a remedy for an upset tummy and really seems to help with sea sickness.  It calms the stomach and takes the edge off the nausea feeling.
