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.
Pitcairn Island is a remote patch of land between Eastern Island and French Polynesia, and Britain’s only inhabited territory in the Pacific.

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
In the loud, busy and often overwhelming medina of Marrakesh, it can be difficult to find a tiny sliver of solace in which to rest after spending hours negotiating for the best market prices. But one riad truly exemplifies the characteristic of “tucked away,” as it’s located a few connected alleyways from the noise and congestion.
The summer of 2019 will be filled with blockbuster hits. There are some recognizable brands that will perform well and some newcomers that might take the box office by surprise. The season is already starting strong with Marvel Studios finally releasing Avengers Endgame. This massive movie set box office records that likely won’t be touched for years. The film brings an end to the series and fans are not going to wait until it’s available on DVD. Endgame is going to jumpstart the season by bringing people to the movies and reminding them why it’s worth spending money to see a movie in theaters versus at home.
Once business concludes, a world of wonder awaits in many of Italy’s incredible cities.
