Hello to everyone. I'm embarking on my first cruise in about six weeks (Norwegian Sun, Santiago to Buenos Aires). I have an inside cabin on a lower to mid-level of the ship. I have felt motion sickness in a car on occasion, but it usually resolved itself, i.e., slept it off, had some 7-up, have never actually tried dramamine for those reasons. It was just a mild annoyance.
So I've heard the waters around Cape Horn can be really rough, and that seasickness is more prevalent. I went to my doc the other day and got a prescription for Scopolamine transdermal patches to place behind my ear for 72 hours at a time. But he said some people have gotten sick from the patches themselves. I've never heard of that problem before. Is it common? Is dramamine just as effective as the patch to begin with?
Just looking for advice... thanks!
