How long to get rid of "sea-legs"??

Just a question - how long on average did it take you to get rid of your "sea-legs"?

We returned last Thursday (Mar 3) and I am still feeling the ship! I am on day 5 on land. Not so much in my legs anymore (still a little) but I still feel it in my head. Yesterday I actually walked into a wall (my body decided to try to make it part way through the doorway).

Our trip was not the best and unfortunately I am still paying for it (physically and financially!).

Many guest don't have any problems. Most clear up in a few days. Me, it takes a couple of weeks. After the aug. repo cruise I may be in for a month of feeling weird!

I keep taking bonine for 3 days after we get off the ship to avoid any of that & it has worked both times.

It hits me differently each time we cruise. It usually lasts 5-7 days but the last time we cruised it lasted about two weeks. HTH

It usually stays with me about a week, however, this last time we ended up "stranded" in Florida an extra day due to a major snow storm in our area. My DW and I spent our day in Epcot. Once we rode Mission Space, we no longer felt the land move! I think we have to make this a post-cruise tradition, kind of like decompressing from a deep dive.

I would say 5 days is the most.... I always jump in my tub (miss it so!!) the first thing, and I notice it in there the most, feels like I am in the ocean.....

I didn't even think about this. We are driving back home to Missouri after the cruise. Is that safe or is our driving going to be all messed up?

I was fine immediately after we got off the ship, until a day or so later when I was in the shower and I felt like the house was moving. The DH experienced it for a couple of days afterwards.

Realityfreakaholic, it's not really that bad, you can function. I guess some folks still get a little queasy, if prone to motion sickness. I just tend to notice from time to time that the dry land seems to be rocking when I get off the ship.

It's funny when and where you feel it the most. I am OK when I am driving (because I am moving). It is usually worse when I am sitting my desk, standing or in a small space - but still it is always there. I am still on my perscribed meds that I took for seasickness. If this lasts a month like some of you have said I will go crazy!!

I went to the gym this morning thinking that I could sweat it out on the treadmill, but I just felt worse (although the work out was good to help ease the weight gain from all of the food!).

Please tell the ship to stop moving!!!!!

I am probably out of the norm, but I don't mind the "sea legs" after the cruise. For me it usually lasts about 4 days but on my last cruise I learned the trick of taking Bonine AFTER I got off the ship for a few days and I didn't feel the "sea legs" at all.

For me it's always been Tower Of Terror. Keeps me good for a hour or so (or maybe that how long the wait is to get on TOT ) Mission Space wasn't open after our last cruise (we went BEFORE hand) but I'm sure that it will work the same as TOT for me!!
