Let's talk about seasickness. I've been one 2 cruises before & always get light-headed/dizzy that 1st night & while sitting down for dinners. Do you call your dr for med? Over the counter?

My ex gets sea sick from riding a merry go round. The OTC stuff caused extreme drowsiness, so last time he got a prescription patch that he stuck on his shoulder before we even got on the boat, and he didn't have one bit of problems for the full 5 days.

I too get motionsick very easily and used the patch (scopolamine) last time. I only felt mildly "off" twice during the week, both times when the seas were extremely rough. I'll definitely be using it again.

One word of advice if you plan to try the patch-get the prescription filled ASAP. For some reason that med seems to frequently have production issues, and can be hard to find. Last year I waited until a week before the cruise and had to call about ten pharmacies before I found one that had it in stock.

Bonine has always worked well for me. I just take it the night before the cruise. Then I take it right before bed every night. Everyone is definitely different. Your doctor should be able to help you out.

My Travel Agent just received ours on Wednesday. You can always call the cruise line at (800) 951-3532 and ask when they were sent.

Did you book through a Travel Agent? If so, it may take a couple of extra days for you to get your docs, as they are sent to the TA first. Don't worry too much, I still don't have mine, but I'm on the west coast. It takes a bit longer for them to make it this far.
