As to whether or not they might quarantine...nobody can guarantee yes or no; if they can are able to decisively determine it is a migraine, then no reason to quarantine because they would then be certain you weren't going to transmit illness to anyone else. If there are other variables in play and it's not a clear-cut migraine issue - you might be quarantined but likely only for a day to see if you are better. I also suffer migraines so I literally understand your concern, however it's just a risk. Can you take anything oral? (I can't.) Do you know your triggers? Do your best to avoid them and hope for an uneventful cruise - in my experience stressing over it would only serve to bring on a migraine.

Enjoy your cruise!
I live on Excedrin Migraine! And I have never found (nor have any doctors) a reason or cause of my headaches. I have daily headaches as well.... Been on many medications & tried many procedures & even had surgeries (for other reasons) that doctors believed may improve them, nothing has!
And that is my same experience, stress makes it worse! Not stressing - just wondered if it helps to have a note or not is all.
I will simply start praying for a clean sail!!! :-)

Nope... This has been my life for the past 20+ years! I guess that's why I want to be prepared! :-)

I think people understand using a little common sense when filling out the health form. When I was 8 weeks pregnant and cruising I had morning sickness. Husband was not thinking at all and marked the yes for vomiting (it was our first cruise so I'll cut him some slack). When they saw the yes they pulled us aside and made us wait for 45 minutes to talk to the doctor. Once he came out and found out I was just pregnant he rolled his eyes and said I don't think that's contagious and then winked at my husband (uh WHY THE WINK DUDE).

That form is asking about contagious illnesses not morning sickness, not air sickness from your turbulence flight the night beforehand, not you 5 year old who throws up on every car ride, a known migraine condition, or your baby who spits up everything with GERD.

Just some advice for those who have a husband with a terminal case of common sense lack-itis.

Careful -I said something negative about this poster and got some sort of points docked or something.

We go to WDW twice a year and have been on 2 cruises, going again this year. My list of OTCs grows each time... LOL!!! I ALWAYS bring the following: Advil, Tylenol, ain't-gas, anti-diarrheal, tums, Benadryl, band aids, neosporin, etc. did I mention I am a nurse... Last year, DH got very sick while at WDW. This happened about 40 hours before going home. Luckily, he was the only one. I quarantined him to the room myself without getting anyone else involved. He never left between sat afternoon and Monday morning when we left. I took our two kids out of there as much as I could; to let him rest and keep everyone healthy. It worked.

I'm sorry for your Mom. That really stinks...

No, since it is a side-effect of a medication he can prove he takes, it should be no problem. Since he's used to this situation, it's not likely he would go to the medical office so there is no way anybody would know. He should bring along whatever he normally uses to offset the unpleasant side-effects.

Enjoy your cruise!

Well I'm glad for you but we didn't have that experience. I've sailed ten times, only two with DCL. We've only encountered illness twice....guess which two cruises?

Semantics aside, this is not the first thread where people were encouraging others to bring sick kids on DCL ships. Bad idea!
