  1. Not to my knowledge. Auke Bay is pretty sheltered. I am very prone to motion sickness and prefer Meclizine HCL (aka Bonine) to Dramamine. It lasts longer and makes you less drowsy
  2. It was actually on their website www.juneauwhalewatch.com. I just took a look and they have a couple of promotion codes on their homepage now We were actually on the bigger boat but as it was in early September, it wasn't full - maybe two dozen people which was fine with us

    Glacier Bay

    That is when you enter Glacier National Park. Typically, cruise ships spend the day cruising into and out and it won't be for a few hours before you even get to the Margerie Glacier - even then, the ship will probably stay there an hour, rotating so that both sides can view it
  4. We used Juneau Whale Watch for a whale watch/Mendenhall Glacier tour and was very happy with it. Went out on the water for 3 hours, saw a bunch of whales and then their bus dropped us off at Mendenhall to spend as much time as we wanted - we left after a couple of hours to take their last bus back into town. We did hike to Nugget Falls. They charged less than most other outfits and an online discount code saved us even more......
  5. Been almost a month since they cruised - curious as what they did
  6. Uber and Lyft are both in KW. General admission to the KW Butterfly and Nature Conservatory is $12pp. If you do go, its right around the corner from the Southernmost Point in the US buoy
  7. If you dock at the Naval Annex/Outer Mole, you will ride a shuttle to Mallory Square. If you dock a Pier B, you will just walk to Mallory Square. OTT stop 1 is there
  8. Lets just say that the "colorful commentary" I spoke of was extremely graphic.
  9. Formal nights are pretty much history on mainstream cruise lines - they're more semi-formal these days.......
  10. We cruised RT out of Seattle in September and I am extremely prone to motion sickness - my wife, less so. I always take Meclizine HCL (brand name Bonine) and never had an issue. My wife didn't on the first day and got a little queasy and had to leave the MDR that first nite. If you are prone to motion sickness, I would bring/take something......
  11. Exactly. Again, I was addressing the OP’s concern about requirement of passport validity where she stated that she was worried that it expired a couple of months after their return. When I mentioned earlier that about being valid on dates of entry and exit as acceptable, I got a little grief because of my source (US State Dept)
  12. I know it is. My comment is addressing her concern about the timebof validity of her child's passport. I merely stated that if they are worried, they could supplement with the BC Carnival accepts a clean photocopy of BC's to cruise so that should suffice. Certified copies are what is needed in order to establish citizenship when applying for things like ID's. If they accept anything else than there is a bigger issue
  13. You crack me up. Why do I “keep” recommending a BC? Because it is an accepted travel document to cruise with and tens of thousands of people do it every year. I am merely stating that if the OP is concerned with length of validity of their child’s passport they could bring a copy of their BC to supplement it. Passports are just as valuable as a BC - but you leave both in your safe.
  14. I didn't find anything on the Bahamas.gov site only stating that a passport or compliant document is needed to visit, but if you go to the Bahamas.com site, which is supposed to be the official site of the Bahamas, whatever that means, it directs you to the CBP.gov site However, my other comment is still valid - to bring the passport along with a certified copy of his BC and he should be fine
  15. We toured with JWW in September and probably because of the number of hours of daylight, we did the whale excursion first. Had maybe 15-17 people on our boat. We also stayed on the water longer than we were supposed to but no complaints there! Didn't get to spend as long at Mendenhall as we wanted as the last JWW tour bus was leaving the park around 6-ish but we did get to spend a lot of time at Nugget Falls. We also got the 15% discount for booking early
