13. Will I get seasick?
The answer is, maybe. If you’re concerned about sea sickness ruining your trip, see your doctor for medication or buy any number of over the counter products available. Note however, the ships are really big and really stable and with modern radar are unlikely to sail into rough weather. For the first day, be cautious in what you eat and drink until you understand how the ship’s movement will affect you.
14. Do I need to use a travel agent to book a cruise?
You can, but you don’t have to. A travel agent can help you find discounts for large groups, coordinate travel arrangements and make sure your flight arrives in time to make the departure. The cruise websites are easy to use, contain all the information you need to book the trip and offer a help line if you have questions.
