We are sailing on the Golden Princess to Alaska on Aug. 30. Anyone joining us? We haven't booked any excursions as we ususally book ours independently. We are thinking of a whale watching excursion out of Juneau. Has anyone taken this excursion with Dolphin Tours? I have read some info about them and it sounds like what we are looking for, but would like to know if anyone has actually been on this excursion. Also I have heard that it is a bit rough when sailing out of Seattle, especially the first night. Any info on this--need to know if I take a 'pill' before sailing out. We have been on about 12 cruises and never have had rough water--don't want to start now!!!
We sailed out of Seattle Sept 2006 and Sept of 2007. 1st day at sea (Sunday) was a little rough both times. I took Meclizine and didn't have a problem with the motion. Better to be safe than sorry. Enjoy your cruise. We loved the Golden and Alaska is awesome!
