Thanks for all the advice in this thread. We are doing our first cruise in 2014 and one of my fears is getting seasick and not being able to control it. And since this will be a graduation gift, I want to be able to enjoy it. I've been on research vessels that have made me sick the entire time so I'm hoping everyone's else's advice will help.

If I can't fly, let me sing. Or, in other words if I can't be in Disney, let me talk about it !

Does anybody know whether Bonine has an equivalent in the UK, as it doesn't appear to be sold as Bonine here.
Thanks so much.

Our 3 kids are going on their first cruise w/ us in Feb. If they don't get car-sick (never have-not even slightly queazy-& we drive in the mountains all the time), can we expect things to go pretty well in this department?
Bumping in hopes I can get some insight here.....

Do you have non-drowsy Dramamine? They have the same active ingredient. Also, DCL offers Bonine in the medical center on ship free of charge.

The ingredient in Bonine is Meclazine. I believe 25mg is a standard dose, although the generic Meclazine I got is 12.5mg. (so we take 2 instead of 1)
