Why You Won't Get Seasick at Summit

Worried about feeling seasick on the high seas during the OP Summit at Sea? Fear not! The Serenade of the Seas is your stable sanctuary, designed to ensure smooth sailing the entire trip.

Let's start with the basics: What makes seasickness occur?

Seasickness happens due to conflicting signals between what your eyes see and what your inner ear senses. This mismatch can leave you feeling dizzy and nauseous, but rest assured, it's uncommon on our stable vessel.

Dr. Benjamin Shore, Royal Caribbean's Chief Medical Consultant Dr. Shore reassures us that aboard modern cruise ships like the Serenade of the Seas, "seasickness is a rarity." Thanks to innovative design and engineering, coupled with the use of stabilizers, most guests sail smoothly without any discomfort.

Designed for Stability

Measuring 965 feet in length and 106 feet in width, the Serenade of the Seas is a model of maritime engineering. Enhanced by advanced stabilizers, it ensures a smooth and comfortable voyage, even in open waters.

Navigating the Gentle Gulf

Embark on your adventure knowing that we’re traversing the tranquil Gulf of Mexico during the fall season. With its calm waters and mild weather, the Gulf offers an ideal environment for smooth sailing, ensuring minimal motion onboard.

Staying Put in the Gulf

Rest assured, we’re keeping it close to home. Our voyage takes us from Tampa to the enchanting shores of Cozumel, Mexico, and back again. With our entire journey confined to the calm waters of the Gulf, you can relax knowing you’re in safe and steady hands.

Dr. Douglas Shaw and Dr. Glenn Krieger (pictured above) embarked on a 4-night cruise on the exact same cruise ship with a similar route. Dr. Shaw can dispel any concerns about seasickness. Despite Dr. Shaw's previous struggles with motion sickness, the gentle waters and advanced stabilizers aboard the Serenade ensured he experienced no discomfort whatsoever!

If you're still feeling a bit uneasy, rest assured, the Serenade's got you covered; it features a dedicated Medical Center fully equipped with motion sickness medications like meclizine, provided to our guests at no additional cost. For our Summit attendees specifically, we're providing seasickness wristbands and stocking ample supplies of Bonine and Dramamine onboard.

Leave your seasickness worries behind! – book your cabin today and embark on an unforgettable adventure!
