  1. OP - Gravol is the Canadian version of Dramamine Interesting fact - Benadryl (Diphenhydramine) breaks down into Dramamine (Dimenhydrinate) and another salt
  2. If you do decide to go with the new boots, make sure they are well broken in before your cruise

    Whales in Juneau

    We found Juneau Whale Watch to have the best prices for whale watching excursions and they have discount codes if you pre-book online. Ships are modern and clean, not crowded (maybe 2 dozen people on our boat) and the on board naturalist was very informative.
  4. We found Ketchikan to be the most like the Caribbean with souvenir shops all over but there are NO ports I would stay on the ship for - there is always something interesting to see that is free/won't cost much. Even Ketchikan. And excursions in Alaskan ports tend to be a little pricey because the tourist season is so short and resources cost more
  5. Without knowing where they are cruising into or out of, it could become a concern - if they are flying into Canada or Mexico where they tend to be a little more strict about these things. Or if they miss the ship in a port and try to catch up with it in Victoria, BC or Cozumel. Hence my statement, better to have it and not need than need it and not have it, because you just never know, and if the OP is asking about it....... JMHO and YMMV
  6. Even though you are the custodial parent you will most likely need permission from the mother in the form of a notarized letter in order to take the kids out of the country. Its also a good idea to bring the court decision. Also, there are countries that may require certain documentation for travel within their borders. Doubt this would be required on a cruise but again - you never know. Better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it.
  7. The Fascination is the first ship I ever cruised on and got me hooked - I would sail her again without any problem as I like the smaller Fantasy class ships. To be honest, I sail itinerary more than I do ship......
  8. Loved the TR! Our first Alaskan cruise was on the Eurodam - pictures brought back some great memories
  9. Packable rain jackets for us because you just never know
  10. Better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it.
  11. What Hlitner said. While nothing is actually charged to the credit card, the amount of credit available becomes less by the pending amount. For those with low credit limits, this can be an issue.
  12. We prefer Old Time Trolley but than again, use it when we are staying in upper Duval in KW to get around
  13. As of now, Glory will dock at Pier B by the Westin hotel according to the City of Key West's cruise calendar https://www.cityofkeywest-fl.gov/department/calendar.php Southernmost Point is walkable from anywhere in historic part of Key West - from where the Glory will dock is at most a 20 minute walk up Duval. Then take Whitehead street back up to the ship where you will pass by the lighthouse, Hemingway's House and the end of Highway 1.
  14. Salads and vegetables in general. I'm on a cruise and don't plan on eating healthy!
  15. Yeah - but I have to apologize. I didn't meant to say that she was that way because she was Canadian. but only that she was from Canada. That point came out when we tried to make small talk once we were seated. It just went downhill from there......
