Are you asking about shots? I know that a girl on our first cruise who was very ill got a shot but it didn't help her with the seasickness. So, they do have the meds on the ship.

I have a question I hope you can answer.

My family of 25 are cruising on the Wonder April 23-27, 2006. Only 2 of the 25 have been cruising before so I don't know if anyone in my family is prone to getting seasick.

I have bought Dramamine and Bonnie.

Do you know if we need to take these motion sickness pills each day (one per day) or just when you feel seasick?

I have always taken bonine when we cruise. DH doesn't take anything. IDK if I would get seasick but choose not to find out. ;) I take one the morning we board...sometimes the day before if we go to WDW so I can ride the spinning rides with the kids. I take a pill each morning. I have heard that it isn't easy to get rid of sea sickness. It is easier to prevent it. BTW, I continue taking the pills for a few days after we get off the ship. Many people talk about swaying after getting off the ship & this helps to prevent that.

I have one more question about seasickness.

Do children get seasick? I have children going who are ages 3-9 yo. Should I put them on preventive pills too? Do you know at what age a person is apt to get sea sick (if children do not usually get sea sick). I just don't want any of my family members missing out on their vacation because they are sea sick. I'm also taking lots of sunscreen lotion - don't want any of us sunburned either.

Why not ask for "the Patch" from your doctor before you leave home?

Consult with your child's doctor before you give them anything. Most of these meds are for adults & children either can't take them or need a much lower dose. Neither of our kids have gotten ill from this on 3 cruises.

Hmmm, because the patch is evil :maleficen at least for me. I know all have different reactions. But, I am curious about these "jabs" :confused3 I'm wondering if it is similar to what can be put in anesthesia to stop nausea.

really, two? I loved it! But I was REALLY needed it, so maybe it is relative. I was puking all night before I put it on. I always have motion issues, but we also had heavy seas. (The Captain even had to come on and make an announcement: The ship is not in trouble.) So I was loving it.

Fostermim,
It doesn't seem that any of us are familiar with the 'jab', but if it works, get us the info!! Maybe your doctor would let you bring one in a hypodermic and administer yourself?
