All aboard! Martha Stewart launches partnership with MSC Cruises so you can cruise like a queen

You can now sail away with Martha Stewart. Well, kind of. 

The lifestyle queen announced on Wednesday morning that she is partnering with MSC Cruises for specially curated and unparalleled experiences for its guests. Think Stewart-approved cuisines, shore excursions, onboard experiences and more. Aptly named "Celebrate, Discover, Experience," the new partnership between the world's largest privately owned cruise line was a fitting choice for Stewart. 

“I’ve always enjoyed introducing people to new experiences, and I’m thrilled to be working with MSC Cruises on a partnership that embodies the true celebratory nature of travel, exploration and discovery,” explained the 77-year-old.

Guests aboard select MSC ships, such as the MSC Seaside and MSC Armonia, have the unique opportunity to take part in enriching culinary experiences, such as classes and food tours, as well as excursions like lessons from local fishermen and horseback riding in the ocean.

"Whether traveling as a family, couple, multi-generational group, or with friends, the amazing thing about a cruise is that there is truly something for everyone," echoed MSC spokesperson Ken Muskat to AOL Lifestyle.  

He continued, "A true highlight of the cruise experience versus a land vacation is being able to immerse yourself in new cultures and explore a variety of interesting destinations in a short period of time. For instance, on our Caribbean itineraries, guests visit anywhere from 3-5 destinations during a 7-night cruise."

How to avoid getting seasick while on a cruise

1. Call guest services

A lot of people feel queasy once on board. Consequently, most cruise lines offer anti-nausea pills at their guest service counters at no extra charge. The motion sickness medicine will help until your body becomes accustomed to the movement of the ship. 

2. Choose your cabin wisely.

A cabin with windows and a balcony will allow more air and light into the room, alleviating queasiness. Alternatively, an indoor cabin can exacerbate these symptoms.

The location of the cabin can do wonders as well. According to Cruise Critic, cabin location is "a question of engineering, really." Choose a cabin lower and more central to the rest of the ship -- you won't feel the ship's movement nearly as much. 

"The higher decks and cabins at the very front (forward) or back (aft) of the ship will rock and roll the most," they said

3. You can still manage in an indoor cabin.

While an outdoor/balcony cabin is better for those prone to seasickness, an indoor cabin might be okay. One insider insists the TV should be turned onto the "ship camera" channel. It "will create the illusion of having a window when you have an inside room."

4. Invest in a relief band

It may be expensive, but a relief band could be your cure. Many cruise-goers insist on this small device, which fits on your wrist like a watch. 

This FDA-approved device has been proven to stop motion sickness and nausea -- just remember batteries! 

BUY IT

5. Opt for nausea-reducing foods.

If you call room service and complain of seasickness, more likely than not they'll send you up a bottle of ginger ale, saltines and green apples. 

Vacationers swear by green apples. For many people, the sour taste is the cure for all sorts of motion sickness. 

6. Keep your eye on the horizon 

In doing so, your brain "can use the horizon as a point of reference." It helps in reminding your brain that you are moving, solving the conflict between your ears and your eyes. 

7. Your journey and time of year matters. 

The rockiness of the boat can depend on the season or even the route of the cruise. Sailing across the Atlantic may face rougher waters than cruising in the Caribbean.

If you're going to the Caribbean, it might best to avoid the summer or fall (aka hurricane season). You don't want choppy waters, high wind or rain. 

8. Go with a more modern ship

No, not for safety concerns. Big ships that were built recently were probably built with stabilizers. Also used in ferries, the stabilizers are used to help prevent sea sickness. 

9. Talk to your doctor about anti-nausea medicine. 

Dramamine helps to calm, prevent and treat motion sickness. Bonine is also a popular medication to treat seasickness. 

10. Check your posture

Some doctors believe that posture can influence how your body reacts to movement, like the rocking of a boat. If you're feeling nauseous, try sitting upright or with a pillow to support the neck.
