My husband and I have booked a 15 day cruise

My husband and I have booked a 15 day cruise from LA to Hawaii this coming March. We will be flying from Memphis to LA with a stop in Denver. He had pneumonia this past spring. He is 80 and has fully recovered. He exercises regularly but still tires easily but no shortness of breath. He also has COPD, a pacemaker and on Eliquis. He has had a flu shot and pneumonia shot. Would he be too high a risk to make this trip?

Yes, I recently returned from a 7 day cruise, and it was celebrating one year after Chemo and Radiation for Stage II Breast Cancer. When I arrived home, I felt dizzy and like I was on a wave. I still feel this way after three weeks, I had fluid in my ears and donot know how that occurred as I never had any under water time. I went to see an ENT....and he thought I should get an MRI on my head. I guess to be safe, but what if it is just Vertigo from the uncalm seas and my fragile state after a rough year? Any suggestions?

Hi, I recently had a very bad case of flu extremely congested, and then I got vertigo it was really terrible. I m over it now and feeling pretty good, my question is this just before I got sick I had booked a cruise to the caribean I have been seasick in the past my dr. thinks that if I get seasick I may get the vertigo again, I purchased transderm-V patch and thought I would try it now before I go on cruise to see if I get any bad side effects. Or should I cancel my cruise and make sure I am really heathy
