If you are going on a cruise, you might be wondering whether or not you will suffer from seasickness during your voyage. Motion sickness is a common problem, especially on boats- and it can make you pretty miserable when you are afflicted.
Seasickness is caused by conflicting signals in your brain from the motion of the waves. Your eyes are telling you that things are relatively still, but your body’s balance centers can sense motion. This causes the fine mechanisms of balance within your body to become very confused and results in an upset stomach, vomiting, headache and sweating.
