The Benefits of Watching the Beauty of the Sunset on a Boat Cruise

By | Onboard Rani | No Comments

Who is not mesmerised with the beauty of the sunset?

Viewing the setting of the sun whilst on a boat cruise is pleasurable. It’s because sailing as the sun sets makes you feel so close to it.

The sunset’s yellow orange and reddish hues that gleam on the ocean makes you feel attached to it. Furthermore, it also leaves a feeling of fascination and relief especially when you are sailing along the still waters of the sea whilst sipping on your silky red wine.

Looking at the brilliance of the sunset allows you to relax, meditate and reminisce. Moreover, watching the sunset soothes the soul. It is somewhat therapeutic as it allows your mind to be cleared from all the stress of the week. In like manner, it helps put your worries to rest as the day ends.

As the boat sails smoothly on the stretches of the sea, you will be most delighted to view the sunset while the breeze of the ocean kisses your cheeks. Hence, it refreshes your soul, mind and body. Thus, you become energized!

This enchanting moment of being on the sea while gazing at the nostalgic splendor of the sunset creates an atmosphere of tranquility. That feeling of calmness makes you forget all the noise of the city. In the same way, it allows you to temporarily leave all the troubles of this world which recharges your spirit.

OVERCOMING SEASICKNESS WHILE ON A CRUISE

By | Onboard Rani | No Comments

Seasickness will spoil everything…

 

For whatever reason you’re taking a boat cruise, partying, celebrating special occasions, island hopping or simply taking a tour, seasickness will ruin your trip.

It’s not good to feel sick while everybody is enjoying the ride and all the activity that is taking place. The worst part is, you might as well bring trouble to your companions who’d simply want to enjoy and relax while on cruise.

Don’t let seasickness get in the way!

 

Let us give you some tips on how to overcome seasickness:

Lady experiencing seasickness

  • Don’t think much about the fact that you’re on a boat. Instead, focus and enjoy the music, and the people. Keep talking to others so you forget that you are sailing at the moment.
  • Look far and straight ahead. Quit looking at moving objects ‘coz it will send signal to the brain which it will pass on to the sensory system (of which coordinates the balance and movement). Thus, triggering seasickness. Since the horizon is the only thing that is not moving, looking far ahead will reset the internal equilibrium therefore preventing seasickness.
  • Relax and stay calm. Think happy thoughts to divert your attention. If you need to close your eyes or sleep then do so if you can.
  • Get good supply of fresh air.
  • Quit eating greasy food and those that are high in fat because fatty foods spin around your tummy like water in the head. Also, have a light meal before boarding and eat just enough while on board.
  • Quit the sugar ‘coz sweets can make you feel wobbly and light-headed.
  • Keep well hydrated as this alleviates the symptoms of motion sickness.
  • Quit the alcohol ‘coz this might worsen your seasickness.
  • Chew on ginger or ginger candy as this helps relieve the symptoms of motion sickness.
  • Always carry along aromatherapy oil or ammonia as this relieves the dizziness, alleviates the aches and pains, improves circulation, reduces stress, and promotes relaxation. This will also help you zonk out which is very helpful during the agony of seasickness.
  • Put on Scopolamine patches. These are medicated patches that look like small band aids that are worn at the back of the ears. The medicine the patches contain secretes into the skin that inhibits seasickness.
  • Sleeping is the best remedy if nothing else works. Take antihistamine and sedative medications like Diphenhydramine, Dimenhydrinate, Promethazine and Hyoscine. These meds will help prevent motion sickness and can even knock you off. Hopefully, once you wake up you’ll finally be ok. Otherwise, sleep again… awww!

Travelling on boat cruise is so much fun. Therefore, make sure you relish every moment while on-board.

Try these tips so you can enjoy the party and the activities that have been prepared for all of you to take pleasure in. Hence, every moment you spend on cruise becomes memorable!
