  1. Hello everyone! I’m setting sale on my first cruise in 578 days (but who’s counting?!? 😉) My husband, 2 daughters and I (along with hubby’s parents and his sister) will be on the Carnival Breeze Feb 2021 for 8 days and stopping in St Maarten, St Kitts, San Juan, and Grand Turk. I live in a landlocked state (our lakes can’t compare to the ocean!) And I’m wondering if I need to go all out and get a rx for the patch. The closest experience I have to a cruise was a ferry ride, I believe in Puget Sound in Washington State? Else it was from Washington to Victoria, BC. It was very windy and the water was choppy. This was a good 15 years ago. I didn’t feel sick, but I experienced horrible vertigo and could not stand or walk without holding onto something. Other experiences with vertigo involve being in a 100 year old cabin with uneven flooring for a week. When standing on those uneven areas, vertigo would hit me. I was last in that vertigo inducing cabin about 3 years ago. The last time I flew I had no problems (also about 15 years ago.) I can ride rollercoasters without issues. But I can’t do carousels, nor reading in moving vehicles. Based on these past experiences, do you cruising pros think it would be wise to assume the worst and get the patch? And does the patch even do anything for vertigo?
