So you know, Tiny ... Those wristbands cannot be concealed very well.
Anybody who sees your wrist will know what that wristband is for.
And if you plan on taking photos (of course, you will) ... who wants to see that wristband on your wrist in the picture.
I like the 'TransDerm' patch because you can place it anywhere on your body ... upper arms, thighs, your lower back, or even close to your rear-end and no one will ever know you're wearing one.
Plus when you swim ... the patch stays in place and won't fall off in the water.

I have to wear my wristbands on carousels, so I never care who sees them. I only took them off to shower or go ashore. Yes, I even wore them sleeping.

Once you remove that wristband for more than 30 minutes or so, doesn't the effects of wearing it wear off ?? I've heard the potent level of medicine in your system dwindles down ... and you can become ill even before your body has a chance to absorb the medicine from another applied wristband. This was the case, last April, with one of my friends ... that's another reason why I think using the patch is better.
The patch stays on until you take it off ... and it lasts for about 72 hours at a time. So it doesn't need to be changed that often and it stays on securely when you wear it (without being noticeable)

They're not medicine at all! They apply pressure on a place on the wrist which somehow prevents the sick feeling. They work great without any drugs! On cruises, I never feel dizzy or sick once with them on, and I get sick on merry-go-rounds. They're only 12 bucks at Sport Chalet, with none of the icky side effects of drugs.

Thanks everyone for your tips & suggestions. I ended up geting the waist bands, for all the pharmacies in my local area had a hard time getting the patches. Guess a lot of people are going away for the Holidays.

One more thing. What's the best way to pack clothing made out of linden? I have quite a few items of clothing that iare linden, and there will be no irons or ironing boards in the cabins.

Yes, you're right !! Actually, my friend started taking Dramamine ... because the wristband didn't give her 'continued' relief. The wristbands are NOT recommended for long voyages/trips ... they ARE recommended for short distance travel. She was on a 7 day cruise and she had problems with the wristbands ... as they didn't keep her seasickness under control. She then had to resort to using medicine pills ... since she didn't get any patches.

The wristbands create 'pressure signals' (on an acu-pressure point) that travel through the median nerve (in your arm) which in turn then travel to the brain. Once the 'pressure signals' reach the brain ... the 'neurological pain signals' (which cause motion sickness symptons) are reduced ... therefore offering relief.

Dang. She has it worse than me. My "power bracelets" worked great for the week-long Alaska cruise.

Wash your hands constantly. A boat is as bad as a plane for germs. Consider packing mini purell-type of anti-bacteria lotion bottles. Pack your own pillow maybe. Nothing like drooling all over a pillow that has been used for someone elses pleasures.



Take your u2.com card for those VIP lines.

the wristbands don't help me either. I still wore them the whole time though. Maybe it was mental, though I get sick in the backseat of a car so I may be extreme.

One of my best friends didn't like the patch. If I remember right it had to do with consuming alcohol while wearing it.

Bring a spray bottle and hang your clothes up as soon as you get in to get wrinkles out.I can't imagine packing well enough to not wrinkle linen. I don't buy linen because I'm opposed to ironing.

How was the ocean ?? Did you experience any 'turbulence' from storms ??
My friend's cruise was to the Caribbean Islands and although she went during the Spring months
(as recommended, since the storm weather activity is considered mostly 'dorment' during that time)
she still had difficulty with the ship's motion.
