Rough Seas Cruise Ship Holidays  Not For Everyone

If youre like me and prone to motion sickness, then it is important to select a more favorable time of year for the area in which you would like to cruise. Cruise holidays are wonderful and with the size and way the newer ships are constructed today, many times you would hardly know you were actually sailing the high seas, they are so smooth. Our family have been on 3 cruises in past years, sailing the Caribbean, Mediterranean and Mexico. Im happy to say, even with a few choppy evenings, I was able to avoid motion sickness on all 3 cruise vacations. We selected an itinerary that was best for the time of year and that were recommended to us by seasoned cruisers as well. The result was happy sailing for the entire family.

If you use a little common sense and select proper sailings, then your chances of running into rough seas on cruise holidays is greatly diminished. Cruise lines select their itineraries for certain times of the year because of weather, seas and other varying factors. They will even alter their itineraries while on a cruise to avoid rough weather for the enjoyment of passengers. If weather is unfavorable for your next port of call, the ships captain may choose to avoid that destination and head to a more pleasant port. So rest assured, the cruise lines make their best effort to keep everyone happy, safe and motion sickness free.

Rough Seas Cruise Ship Vacations  Can Be Avoided

When in doubt, always take the time to ask a cruise specialist or travel agent familiar with cruising about the destination you wish to go and what the weather is like for that time of year. Read reviews to get an idea whether you may encounter rough seas on that selected cruise. There are all kinds of information available absolutely free both on-line on the internet and at reputable travel agencies in your area. It is possible to avoid the roughest seas and pick cruise destinations with smoother crossings then others.

Cruise planning is fun and with a little time spent preparing, youre sure to have a wonderful holiday like our family have enjoyed in the past. Its not entirely possible to predict what Mother Nature has in store, but you can reduce the odds of rough seas and weather by picking the appropriate destination recommended for that time of year.
