All Inclusive Vacations: Cruise Packing List for Motion Sickness
The magic about vacations is loving the experience, and what's better than an all inclusive cruise. For one price, you get entertainment, food, and sometimes even all inclusive alcohol. Feeling the wind in your hair on the deck, dancing the night away on a swaying ship, or dining with new friends is not complete without the guarantee that you won't be trapped in your cabin due to seasickness.
DON'T forget Motion Sickness Remedies
Forgetting to pack some sort of anti-nausea medication, remedy, or vomiting relief product can lead to a doomed cruise vacation. Most people assume that they won't get sea sick because the boat is so big so they don't think to pack anything, that they never got seasick before, or have never had a problem with motion sickness.
Nausea or vomiting is the most common side effect of travel. Cruisers forget that they can contract food poisoning or get sick from the water in other countries, may contract a cold or flu from being in close quarters, and the weather is unpredictable so just because you didn't get sick before doesn't mean you won't hit rough seas this time. What passengers don't know is to see the on board doctor is hundreds of dollars if the freebie pills they have in a bowl don't work. As an anesthesia provider who deals with puke all the time, those anti-nausea pills don't actually cure nausea, they just sedate you (make you so sleepy) so you forget you're sick in the first place because people don't throw up while they sleep.
DO bring remedies that work for you
Make sure you find a product that works for you whether you have motion sickness, get a cold or eat food your stomach does not agree with and bring it with you. your sick and bring it with you. Talk to your doctor about prophylactic antibiotics, or research online the best seasickness medications.
I personally prefer natural products and always bring these essential oil
infused acupressure wristbands from www.nomonausea.com
