It really depends on the ship and how rough the sea is. I've done South Pacific and then South Pacific/Fiji - the first night on the south PAC/Fiji was pretty rough and a bit of a struggle to walk. You do get used to it though and in three cruises I've never been sick. I've done two P&O and one Princess and absolutely loved Princess so I know we won't go back to P&O. If you're looking at South Pacific though they do tend to have a slightly better itinerary. I love cruising, it's a great way to holiday.

I did a Christmas cruise through south Pacific. It was 10 or 12 days I think. It wasn't particularly rough but you could feel movement.
I loved the Islands. But I would never ever do cruising again. It was with P&O and it was crap. People were complaining a lot on board about their cabins. Our drain kept getting blocked. The air conditioning wasn't working properly. The crew had a loud party one night and we could hear it. Our show got canceled and the food was awful.
Yep... I know lots of people like cruising but it wasn't for me. At least not with P&O.

We have done a few over the years with Carnival and Princess Cruises never P&O as I've heard it compared to a floating RSL club!!!

We've been on one cruise with Princess and it was fantastic! We went around new Zealand - the first couple of days heading south had some pretty rough seas and I felt a little off, but after that it was fine! We're really keen to do a south Pacific cruise and would definitely go with Princess again. The service was excellent, the food was delicious and it was one of the best holidays we've had!

We've done great cruising with Princess and Royal Carribean. Wouldn't ever go P&O. The rocky nature depends on time of year, weather , location and where you are on the boat. We always book cabins close the to middle to minimise sway. I also wear sea bands which help a lot

We are about to cruise for the first time, 4 nights in the Bahamas. It is just hubby and I and it's a tester to see if hubby could handle a longer cruise with the children as we want to do a Disney Cruise.
Hubby gets severely sea sick so we could have issues but have been assured by numerous people he will be fine.

We went on a 7 day cruise for our honeymoon. I got nausea tablets from my GP as I was worried I'd get sick. DH ended up taking them for 2 days! I couldn't look out the windows for the first 2 days. After the 2 days we were both fine. We were told depending where your room was on the ship also determined if you'd feel sick more or not.

I a looking at Carnival Spirit at the moment- there are some great deals ex Sydney for August/ Sept, with some onboard $$ credit thrown in. I haven't been on a cruise before but and favouring Carnival over P and O by the research so far. Cruisecritic blog has loads of reviews, and they might help with the best cabin locations to avoid seasickness.
