Most of the time, it's smooth sailing on a cruise ship. But certainly not always. And if you didn't take any Dramamine along....
The Carnival Fantasy was delayed for a day on its return to Mobile, thanks to some rough weather and some 15-foot waves! So there were plenty of seasick passengers. But fortunately, according to our WKRG News 5 story, a great crew to help make passengers more comfortable.
Some people are better at handling rough seas than others, and I've actually gotten a lot better at it. First time out on the water was a fishing trip on the Pacific Ocean. Nobody was catching anything, and as an 11-year-old boy, I was the first to get sick. Yay! A few years later, Dramamine got me through on a ferry boat.
But last year, we went out on some rough seas on our vacation to Alaska. Several people were sick; but finally... not me.
There are a couple of things you can do to avoid getting seasick.
- Take Dramamine or some other seasickness remedy, before the water gets too rough
- If you're feeling bad, fresh air will do you a world of good. Stay outside for awhile, until you're feeling better.
