A cruise is one of the best ways to combine a lazy vacation with travelling the world and exploring new cities. However, for some people, such a vacation can be a real challenge if they suffer from seasickness, an unpleasant condition that occurs as a result of the ship's motion.

Nausea, vomiting, dizziness, fatigue, and headaches are just some of the symptoms that can dampen the joy of a luxury ship vacation. The Omio team shared their tips with The Mirror on how to avoid getting seasick on vacation.

Choose the right route

Experts advise to give preference to European destinations and avoid cruises "that pass through any crossings of the North Atlantic, as well as the Caribbean during the hurricane season, which lasts from June to November."

The best route options: Mediterranean, Gulf of Mexico, or Caribbean cruises that don't operate during hurricane season.

Book the right cabin

The most stable cabin is the one in the middle of the ship on the lowest deck. You will feel less motion sickness there than in other parts of the ship. In addition, experts advise looking for a cabin with a balcony.

Look for information about the age of the ship

"Before booking a cruise, look at the age of your ship as this can affect how seasick you will be when it goes to sea. Newer ships have better stabilization methods."

Do not drink alcohol

Strong drinks can only aggravate the symptoms of seasickness and make passengers feel worse. Alcohol also accelerates dehydration, which "affects the body's resistance to the effects of ship motion."

Avoid fatty and spicy foods

"While cruising, the food you eat will affect the level of motion sickness you experience. Avoid heavy, greasy, or spicy foods as they can increase the nausea you may experience."

Instead, you should choose light snacks and small portions. Tourists were also advised to make sure that nausea does not become a cause of vertigo.
