I have a chance to go on my very first cruise. I am still considering it, but I suffer from anxiety. I don't travel well while others are driving, and most of the time I just wish the driver would slow down.
I have often thought I would like to go on a cruise, as I will not fly on an airplane. Can someone please tell me what it feels like on a cruise? Do you feel the speed of the ship? Can you sense a rocking type of motion? Thanks.

Pretty much no. Unless you're out on the balcony looking out. BUT I do feel after getting back home to my own bed like I'm on the ship with a gentle rocking/wave motion. So it must be very slight. You might feel it when laying in bed depending on what level you are on and how the sea is that day.
Go. For. It.

Yesssssssssssssssssss!!! I was so sick on our cruise I was just miserable. The last night aa singer in the on board band told me about Meclizine and that you could get it free on board. Wow what a life saver. I didn't know about it until the last 24 hrs. but thank goodness it worked and I had 24 hrs. free of nausea. I believe you can get it now in the pharmacy under the name Bonine.

Yes. I woke up feeling like I was in a washing machine. Many people on the boat were sick on the cruise I went on. Meds helped, but that nauseated feeling never left me. Hubby too.

Yes, at times you may feel some motion. It depends on the weather and the size of your ship. Selecting a cabin that is mid-ship and on a lower level will help alleviate some of that feeling, but may not totally do away with it.

I felt nothing. However, if you have severe motion sickness you might get sick. One time I got motion sickness just from being in a revolving restaurant at the top of a building.
Personally I did fine on the first leg of the voyage. But on the return part, I got seasick although I wasn't aware of any movement.
If you don't have motion sickness, I don't think you will have ANY problem
