We took Dramamine before our first cruise, but really did not feel any effects, so we just make sure we have it on hand for each of our subsequent cruises.
DH did take some on a really rough day on our 2010/2011 NYE cruise, but the rest of us were fine. He was better by that evening.

Ok. I can see the list... (Thank you for putting it together).. now.. What do we do. I read through some of the posts and it looks as though you put some little gifts into the pockets.. do we do this for each person on the cruise participating? or is it broken down into groups or what? Please let me know. The beginner!

I get motion sick riding in the back seat of a car so I always take Less Drowsy Dramamine before boarding and then I take it the second day most of the time. After that I get acclimated to what ever motion is felt and will only take more if the wave action really increases. I'm not sure I always need the medication but I take it beforehand just in case and have only come close to motion sickness once when seas were 12 to 15 feet and the was a lot of rolling motion.

Moe- you pretty much do what you can. I found things for everyone so everyone in the cabin will get something. You can do one thing for the whole cabin or something for everyone. There is a post in the main board that talks about fe gifts if you need some ideas.

Moe,
Go back to page two and on my post #19 I listed several threads and such that will give you an idea. As said, the gift is totally up to you, whether it be one per cabin or person. No rules or regulations and I have appreciated all given to me and so forth and so on.
Read some of those links and if you have any other questions, let us know.

Andrew (my DH) gets motion sick VERY easily. He takes 2 meclazine (the less drowsy version of Dramamine) every evening before bed, beginning the night before the cruise. I will start to take it if I feel a little funny, but I only take one pill. We bring regular dramamine for the kids (meclazine is only for ages 12+), Brendan (my eight year old) recently started getting motion sick also, so he will probably need it some this trip. When the kids were really young, we brought liquid benadryl (it has some anti-motion sickness properties) just in case.

One medication we will NEVER use again is the patch. It blurs our vision horribly. The last time I used it, my vision did not go back to normal until a week after I took it off! --Katie

Speaking of the patch, I recently had surgery and discussed the patch with my anesthesiologist. He said the same thing about it causing blurry vision. He agreed to let me use it during surgery, but he said to be sure to remove it the next morning. I usually use 1/2-1 dramamine as needed.

It's getting closer!!

Bought the less drowsy Dramamine for the Dream and my husband and I slept the entire day...I kid you not!! We did eat breakfast but after that, it was a wrap! Can't even imagine taking the regular formula.....probably would sleep the whole sailing time. I will try the sea bands this time.

FE Gifts

Hi all! So excited to meet everyone!

I just wanted to let everyone know that although we have two staterooms with two adults in each, we would be very happy with "kiddie" type FE Gifts. We have 7 children between the two couples and think it would be fun to bring back FE momentos to them.

Now back to making all of mine.....

Kelly and Jeramie Worley #5522

That is what I have - I think some folks just don't have their room numbers yet - thanks so much for getting us all organized, Kathy! I also still need some last names, please. I am making a little something that needs the family name - otherwise your FE gift will be very generic....

Thanks a bunch!

Green apples

Althiugh I have never tried it myself I have heard from other passengers that green apples are a sure cure for seasickness on the ship. And I have noticed there are green apples available at the Topsiders Buffet on Deck 9. Sherry
