Default Smaller Cruise Ships & Seasickness

I'm thinking about a Tahitian Island cruise on the Tahitian Princess in December. Holds about 600 passengers. Has anyone experienced the 'ride' on this or any smaller cruise ship. Does the size make it more likely to get seasick?

Of course the smaller the ship, the more you will feel the movement of the ocean. However, the majority of inter island travel usually (don't hold me to it) is not in the main currents, and therefore not subject to a lot of "rockin' & rollin". You should have a fine cruise..just take your meds..

I normally get sick on the smaller ships....the Carnival Sensation I got really sick but only while in the Gulf during a noreaster and the waves were very rough. On the Triumph I didn't get sick but it's a much larger ship too.

Bring some bonine with you and you should be fine!
