I've been wanting to do this, too!!! Just can't decide where to go....wouldn't it be wonderfully relaxing...getting to knit with others, eat food, share in our obsession, did I mention eat food? LOL!

There's actually a couple threads about knitting cruises and trips. Knitaly comes to mind.

Too bad I get so seasick. I would definitely find a way to go!

Didn't think about that but I would take the risk! I don't have a problem in a boat on the water but they say the ocean is a whole different matter.

Yeah, they do. However, I have been seasick and it's the most horrible feeling on earth... constant nausea until the boat stops moving pretty much. No way I'll 'try' it. The thought of being sick for a week..

I don't get seasick thankfully, but my poor BF does horribly. Does Dramamine work for you?

I dunno, never had occasion to need it, but my system is usually very responsive to medication so it would probably work for me.

also tehre are homeopathic versions that could work for you also. the over the counter med's (inthe uk anyway) my brother never found worked (he's a pill popper, anything slightly wrong he's straight to the meds).
i'm lucky no seasickness. i love cruises.

i looked into these a while back, not to suire hopw ds would feel about a week on a boat knitting, is this mean mummy time again i think . well i could drag bf along as well just to add to the mean ness hehe.

there are loads out there taht look great though

Your doc can write an Rx for a Scopolamine patch, after the first three days, when you have to take it off, it can be replaced if you need it. I've never needed more than the first one. They work great. Since my right middle ear is in pieces, no patch,no sailing.

A knitting cruise sounds like a blast, though.

Dramamine makes me really drowsy so I usually take Bonine. The last time I was on a boat even taking two pills I was sick as a dog for hours. At least I knew it would be over eventually whereas on a boat..not so much. I doubt I'd try a cruise. It's too expensive to experiment with you know?
