Well, that week of cruising the Queensland coast went very quickly! As I type this ( 9 hours after disembarking) I can still feel the motion of the ocean, a little sway-ee still, I don't get motion sickness though and I think your body just gets used to being in constant motion. It must be a middle ear thing.

I have heard also if you are able to see the horizon, it reduces your nausea as you are focused on a stable vista. Once, a few cruises ago, we went with an inside cabin, that meant no window or porthole, I would never do that again as I felt quite claustrophobic. As for reducing motion sickness, there were quite a lot of people that used these Sea-bands, and were very happy with the relief they gave them. They all said it reduced their nausea significantly.

It was so lovely to catch up with my Daughter and her partner while up that way. They hired a mini van for us, so we were able to sightsee altogether. On the Monday, when we were going to go on the Sky-rail it rained so we went up to Port Douglas instead. The girls had a hoot feeding the kangaroos and seeing all the wildlife at the Wildlife Habitat. As we still had the mini van we were able to go on the Sky-rail on the Tuesday when the weather was much better
