A rough ride across the Mediterranean By Christopher Elliott | July 29, 2011 We spent today at sea. It was a bumpy ride back to Palma de Mallorca, Spain. But an invitation to tour the bridge made us forget about our motion sickness for a little while. The boys wanted to steer the Epic, but no insurance on Earth will cover a six-year-old. Here’s all of us on the bridge with captain Sverre Sovdsnes. The weather didn’t start to get really rough until later in the afternoon, so these are the “before” shots. You don’t want to see the “after” pictures. Christopher ElliottChristopher Elliott is an author, journalist and consumer advocate.

Nice to see y’all smiling. Belle42 just a heads up, if you or your family are having trouble with seasickness, ginger is good to alleviate it — whether it be ginger candy, ginger ale, or ginger from the sushi bar. hope this helps! Anna Fresh air helps as well. Get out on the deck, watch the ship move through the waves… works for me. http://oussamastake.blogspot.com/ Oussama Concentrate on enjoying the Mediterranean. It is a truly magical place. Lenox862 yeah, we do. where are the “after” shots? John McIntosh I echo the comments on a good looking family. We had a similar experience trying to cross from Italy to Spain last year. Eventually ended up diverting past Corsica to Monte Carlo. A bummer. Suz The sea bands really help with the kids. I use them too if the weather is rough. Looks like it was fun still.
