    We are a family of four, children aged 5 and 3, and we are considering booking a 7-Night Cruise on Disney Wonder on 23 December. My biggest concern is about seasickness, as I am not a natural sea person. Should I dare to book? Any advise?

    Hi Caroline!
    It is great to hear from you again!  The last thing you want to do is feel seasick on your magical voyage!  We have been on many cruises, and my husband is affected by the motion of the ship, but he doesn't let it ruin his vacation at all!  Here are a couple of things that has worked for him that hopefully will work for you too!  Dramamine (non-drowsy) is an over-the-counter medicine or the Transdermal Patch which is a small patch you place behind your ear and is prescribed by a doctor.  The shops onboard usually carry seasickness medication too and you can always visit the Medical Facility as well! 
    When you select your room, you might what to consider requesting a room on a lower deck in the middle of ship because this is where you will feel the least amount of motion. 
    I hope my answer helps, Caroline!  Thanks so much for using the Moms Panel!
    Have a magical day!
