Okay, This is my 7th cruise. I get really seasick though and need to wear the patch. My last cruise to Bermuda was rough and even with the Patch, I got sick, but it was a very small ship. On my honeymoon (carnival destiny), a 101,000 ton ship, I was actually amused by the people falling in to the walls in the 13 foot swells and I was fine. Now the patches I wore to Bermuda, I have two left and they are good through 2004. The doctor said there is no reason for me to get new ones, even though I did get sick on my last cruise. I just read on another message board on this site that a person returned from the Western Caribbean last week with 12-14 foot swells. I also hear the Grand Princess is one of the rockiest princess ships dispite its size. is this true? If so, am I in trouble? What else can I do (other than eating fruit which does help) to prepare myself for this? Can I take dramamine with the patch? Anything else? Do you think the seas could calm down by this Sunday? Thanks for the help!!
