Default Post Cruise Nausea???

My wife is feeling nauseated after spending seven days on a cruise. We took Gravol throughout our trip and generally felt fine. On the flight home, she started feeling sick to her stomach. We have been back for three days now, no longer taking Gravol, and she still has an upset stomach at points through the day. Also, we have both experienced the "swaying of the boat" days after the end of the cruise. Has anyone else experienced nausea after their cruise? How did you get rid of it?


P.S. Cruising is awesome!!

You have yet to regain your land legs. It can take up to a week after a cruise to regain your equilibrium. Have no fear...it will subside.
