Getting seasick would certainly ruin a liveaboard dive cruise for you, and probably everyone around you. If you know you are prone to seasickness, there are precautions you can take to make it a non-issue. Over the counter drugs such as Bonine work very well for most people, but the important thing is to read the directions and take that first pill hours before you step aboard the vessel. The transdermal Scoplamine patch also works well for some. If you've never used one of these drugs, my recommendation is that you try a dose in advance, at home, to be sure you are not one of the small percentage of people who experience unfortunate side-effects.
