1. Stay close to the middle of the vessel. The middle has less motion than the bow and stern. Find a place to sit and relax in the middle of the cruise ship deck and take some deep breaths of fresh air.
2. Look at the horizon. The stationary horizon will always appear still and in the same place. Your brain will recognize the stillness and send clues to your inner ear. Your inner ear, then regains its balance and the seasick feeling subsides.
3. Eat a bland diet. Stick to bland foods like crackers and bread. Following the B.R.A.T. diet, which stands for bananas, rice, applesauce and toast, helps, too.
4. Take ginger capsules or eat ginger cookies. Ginger is a natural remedy for nausea. If you can find ginger ale containing real ginger, taking small and frequent sips can alleviate nausea.
5. Use medication. There are over the counter medicines that you can purchase before a trip or get from the ship's doctor to treat seasickness. Anti-nausea patches provide a time-release of medication. These small patches are placed behind the ear and can last up to 3 days.
6. Apply acupressure to the inside of your wrists. Motion sickness bands apply pressure to the median nerve in the wrist, which is in charge of nausea. The bands are available over the counter.
7. Avoid thinking about feeling seasick. Keeping your mind occupied on anything other than the nausea and sweating can help reduce the seasick feeling.
