Experts agree that almost no one is immune from motion sickness. Given a strong enough stimulus , anyone with a normal sense of balance will succumb. Some people are susceptible to certain types of motion only or under special circumstances only. Individuals who may experience no discomfort at all riding in a car or plane, might fall victim to seasickness because of the ship's combined motions of pitching from back to front and rolling from side to side.
