Cruising is one of the best experiences someone can enjoy. however, the cruise is unlikely to be pleasurable if you can’t avoid sea sickness on or after the cruise.
Unfortunately, if you have never been on a cruise, it can be hard to tell whether you will suffer from sea sickness cruise. However, being informed about this unpleasant feeling can prepare you for the cruise.
What it is Seasickness on a Cruise?
Seasickness on a cruise is comparable to any other travel sickness, caused by a feeling of confusion in your mind and senses.
A mismatch between the information relayed to your brain from the sensitive inner ear canal and what your eyes see is what causes sea sickness on a cruise. According to the inner ear canal, you are in motion based on the movement of waters. However, your eyes see otherwise because the deck and cabin are stationary. This results in your mind receiving conflicting information; hence, you end up feeling sick.
The symptoms of seasickness on a cruise ship vary from one person to another and also depend on the severity. Vomiting is a common symptom as the brain assumes you are hallucinating due to poisoning hence it triggers vomiting to get rid of toxins in your body.
Other symptoms include;
- Production of excess saliva
In extreme cases, these symptoms can result in dehydration and low blood pressure. If you have symptoms of dehydration, you should see a doctor immediately.
Since the problem is caused by confusion in your brain, the treatment solutions for the sickness revolve around fooling the mind and reducing the amount of conflicting information you send its way.
Some ways to do this include:
- Concentrating on the distance rather than objects nearby and motion of the waves.
- Stay in a place with fewer movements, such as the centre of the cruise ship. This way, your brain will not receive conflicting signals.
- Get busy! Taking a walk around the ship, rather than staying in one place, can also help.
