Cruises represent the ability to escape from everyday life for a week of luxury and relaxation. The anxiety many face at the beginning of a trip is seasickness.

 

The first option is over-the-counter medicine brand Dramamine. Dramamine fights nausea and motion sickness. Travelers should take the medicine before actually stepping on board the cruise ship to best ward off effects before they begin. In all likelihood, by the time the Dramamine works itself through your system, your body will be ready to deal with the sea.

 

If you don’t want to take medicine, but are still dealing with some bad motion sickness, there are a number of things you can do to fight the symptoms.

 

Start by sitting down and focusing on a single point. This will help your sense of balance come to terms with the motion around you. If sitting and focusing on a single point is not working, consider lying down and closing your eyes.

 

There is a good chance alcohol and excessive food consumption, as is popular on cruise ships, also hurts your ability to cope with motion. If you find the symptoms only arrive after large meals or heavy consumption, consider cutting back a little for your own sake.

Hotel Bonaventure

While the snow continued to fall at a steady clip, my taxi pulled up outside Hotel Bonaventure Montréal. A quick departure from my cab and a few steps later, I was taken in by the distinctive style of the entrance corridor. A quick elevator ride to the lobby is necessary because Hotel Bonaventure Montréal sits on the final two floors of a 17-story business and professional complex. The hotel is located in the heart of downtown Montréal, and even connects to the city’s underground concourse.
