How is seasickness spread?

Page last updated 07 July 2020

Seasickness is not really considered a disease, and it is not something you catch. However, there are certain people who are more prone to seasickness than others, including women moreso than men and children moreso than adults. If you have had seasickness in the past you may have worse symptoms in on future trips because you expect to feel sick.
