Antarctica: Sea sickness?

Jump to last reply

Im considering a trip to antarctica together with my stepfather. We probably would be going with the Vavilov (http://www.quarkexpeditions.com/our-ships/akademik-sergey-vavilov).
My main concern is the chance of sea sickness. Im having motion sickness in very small planes (4-12 seaters).
Im mainly wondering whether it is just during the 2 days in the Drake Passage that you are likely to become sick, or if its during the whole trip?
If its during the whole trip, is it something you get used/adjusted to after a couple of days?
And lastly; are there any good medicines out there that really help?

I would hate to spend such much money on a trip I might not enjoy cause im constantly sick ;) looking forward to hear your insights and experiences!
