Default Sea Bands for motion sickness...have they worked for you?

I don't like the idea of taking something for seasickness especially if I know I will also want an occassional drink...we got a great deal on the sea bands on ebay which might look dorky but aren't suppose to make me loopy either! Have you used them before? Were they successful? Compared to other products - which did you prefer?

Thanks for the advice...

I tried them, but found they really didn't work for me. Of course, who knows if I got them on the right pressure points or not. I've found bonine works well for me. I haven't had any side effects at all and one pill lasts 24 hours. I take one the morning I'm boarding and then only as needed after that. Once I've been on board for 24 hours I seem to get adjusted. Some cruises I've never taken more than the one. Did you see my post on hotels about the Wyndam? I know you were asking about it.

unless you are prone to motion sickness when you drive or fly, chances are you won't need anything on your cruise. The ships are very stable, but with that being said, it is a good idea to have a back-up plan. Our friends have had very good luck with the SeaBands, our family isn't prone to motion sickness so i cannot speak first hand. I get a tad quezzy in the stomach when we first sail and ginger-ale works for me, it settles my stomach.
