Thread: mini cruises...

  1. #1
    still looking at options for our small break. Found a really good deal on a mini cruise- 2 nights to Guernsey from Southampton. I really would like to try a mini cruise to see if i get sea sick or not. I always remember feeling poorly on the cross channel ferry and used to take meds but i'm fine on a speed boat..what's that all about? I haven't been on a ferry in a while. This would be the ideal opportunity for me to trial cruising without wasting a lot of money if I'm feeling sick.

    it's a princess cruise and it is the inaugral sailing of it's newest ship. Haven't spoken to Jon yet, just thought i'd get opinions.

    I'm in the same boat.... so to speak!

    We'd like to try a Disney cruise but DW is very worried she'll feel ill. So we'd like to try a short trip just to see how it goes

    so yeah I say go for it! Sounds like an ideal way to start

    I have taken 1 cruise. We did a 3 night on Royal Carribean. I thought I would feel trapped but I did not. I didn't even notice we were moving except when at the railing or looking out the room window.

    I think it's a great idea! Jon and I have cruised several times and love it. Jon experiences severe motion sickness, but has never had any issues on a ship. that it's the same for you, cruises can be great fun!

    It would be cheaper to do a few crossings on the Torpoint ferry then I'd get to see you!
