Feeling Dizzy After a Cruise Ship Vacation?
Carol and I are just home from a fabulous 10-day cruise of Alaska’s Inside Passage. We sailed with Crystal Cruises from Vancouver to Seward and had a fabulous time. More on that later.
What I wanted to share with you today is that as I’m typing these words, my desk and computer are seemingly moving about as though I were still on the cruise ship. While my sensations are not particularly intense, it is quite noticeable.
If you’re reading this and feeling similar sensations, don’t be alarmed, it’s a symptom called Mal de Debarquement Syndrome (or MdDS). Some have described it as trying to walk on a mattress or perhaps a trampoline after being on a cruise. I’ve experienced this before, and my symptoms went away after a day or so.

Meanwhile, after I get my photographs sorted, and my computer stops swaying from the illusionary waves, I’ll swing back around and tell you all about our Crystal Cruises experience.
