Where are the sea sickness tablets?

The first time we went on the ferry to Ireland, seven years ago, the seas were also described as "moderate," meaning house-sized waves and gale-force winds. I'm the only one in the family who doesn't get sea sick, so the rest of the clan spent the three-hour cruise in considerable distress, laying as flat as they can on the deck. Fortunately, "moderate" seems to be defined rather broadly (I'd hate to see "heavy") and the trip this year was comfortable.
