  • Do you get seasick?

    Sorry if this is a stupid question but I have never really spent much time at sea so don't really know if I do or not. Is it something you can learn to live with or treat?

    If it turns out I am would it be the end of my dreams?

    Well I would imagine everyone get's seasick at some point when the seas get rough enough. Just like sensibility to ie pain it's a very individualistic thing... Some get it easily, some dont... Some get REALLY ill and some just feel a bit under the weather.(not sure if that's a pun or not, could be)

    So I wouldn't worry, unless you are very sensitive you should be fine, and if you are you would've noticed it all ready. Do you feel terribly sick when travelling on coaches for example?

      Even if you do get sea sick, after the first few days your body should adjust to the constantly moving ship and you should be fine.

        That is great to know and a huge relief. Coaches don't bother me so that is a good sign, and really happy to know I should get used to it.

          Should and Will are two different things.....

          I was on one ship and it seemed never ending.

          The bigger the ship the better it is, and most ships you will meet will be a fair size! Not to worry!

            Just in case, take seasickness tablets and take them for the first couple of days if you're worried, your body should get used to the motion soon enough. Also, extra strength ginger tablets are good, according to my sister (who gets seasick on a boat that's still tied alongside, but went sailing when she was in Australia!)

              Even after [REDACTED] years at sea I still get sea sick, but normal only if there is an odd swell from an odd direction OR if we have been flat calm for a few days and suddenly it gets rough. Normally last a few hours and then goes away on it's own

                I get the opposite...I get sick when I come ashore!! It lasts for about 3 days and I have to take sea sickness tablets for it before I get off!

                    I've had that before on day trip boats, I'd get back onto land and feel as if I was still moving in a swell!

                      Seasickness is something you can overcome over time. When I went back to smaller vessels after being on 90,000gt gin palaces with stabilisers, I ended up a bit queezy. Only once have I been seasick, and that was in Biscay after eating a whole tub of gummy bears (I blame it on the gummy bears), but do get headaches when the weather is particularly bad!

                        I stopped being sea-sick a few years back. Too many bumpy dive boats and eventually it goes away.
                        I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.....

                          I have an uncle who has been at sea for 30years and now a Master, he has to take sea sickness tablets everyday he is at sea he has never got used to it. Both him and the Chief Officer on the ship suffer from seasickness so its not a big issue....you just spend a fortune on tablets!!!

                            Seasickness tablets are available on prescription in Scotland. Not sure which ones but they are similar to Stugeron 15.
