Meniere's disease and seasickness

Recommended Posts

Does anyone here have any experience cruising with Meniere's disease? A diuretic has kept me from any attacks for a couple of years, but I've been on dry land. I'm a little concerned that the ship's movement might set it off again.

Been there, Done that, I have that. I too, was worried, about the motion of the ship, on the first cruise I took. Matter of fact it was to the Med. 28 Days. I found that the only time the ships movement bother me, was when the ship rolled. I have been in some pretty rough seas now. But it only bother me sometimes and depending which way I was sitting. Mostly when I was in the interior of the ship. If I started to feel a little dizzy, I would go to my cabin and stand out on the balcony for awhile, then I was right as rain.

On my last cruise I did have more of a problem. Love bacon, had to much, too much salt. Stay away from the salt. Lucky it was a sea days. So took a diuretic and a la la pill. I was good to go that evening.

On the diuretic, you know what happens. On the ship ok. On tours, they are not always available when you need it. Try on land not taking to see how you do. I only take if needed. Have fun in the Med. Great cruise.

Thanks, Greg. Good to hear from someone with experience with both the cruise and the condition. I feel like the triamterene keeps most of the effects in check, with meclezine for backup, should keep it at bay. I am in a studio, near the center of the ship, so I'll be aware of that. Good tip on the salt  - probably need to watch the caffeine as well. In any case, it will be an adventure!

My husband has Meniere’s. We’ve been on 5 cruises, numerous ferries, harbor cruises and whale watching tours, and never any sea sickness.  Also take Meclezine with us just in case, but he’s never needed it. Have a great cruise!
