What if my guests or I get seasick?
Generally, getting sick on the calm waters of Clear Lake or Galveston Bay is rare, but Panacea is prepared and stocked with several non-medication methods for preventing and controlling seasickness, including special wrist bands that apply gentle pressure to an acupressure point in the wrist that relieves nausea. There are several recommended ways to prevent and/or combat seasickness: 
 
*   Eat a light meal, non greasy meal the night before the cruise
*   Limit alcohol consumption the evening before the cruise
*   Take an over-the-counter preventive medication, like Dramamine, a few hours before the cruise
*   Get a lot of rest the evening before the cruise
*   Ask your doctor for a prescription medication that's suited for your personal needs. Then use it!
*   Bring products with ginger in them, such as ginger cookies, ginger ale and candied ginger, as it is proven, effective cure for most people suffering nausea caused by seasicknes
