My wife and I just got back from a cruise. We took along Dramamine just in case as it was our first cruise. We also bought two sets of Sea Bands. They're terry cloth sweatbands with a plastic bead in each one that puts pressure at a point on the wrists that stops nausea. The bottom line is that several times on the ship, my wife was green around the gills with one entire day on the ship having winds across of the deck of between 40-50 knots (46-57 mph.) The ship was rockin' and rollin' that day. Within 10 minutes of putting on the bands, she felt fine. I thought folks may like to know about these cool little deals.
