    This is really a silly question but do you say it "Bonine" ( long i like the number 9) or "Bonine(like neen)?? I know its stupid but I have heard it both ways?

    Thanks!

    I'm personally a "bah-neen" person, but I've heard it both ways as well. They'll know what you're asking for.

    I don't think it's a stupid question, because I've always wanted to know too! I always say "bo nine".

    I say ba - neen. I figure it is because my sisters name is Janine, and we don't say Ja - nine(9), we say Ja - neen. But, that is just my logic! :teeth:

    We say Bo - neen.

    the other way sounds too much like a tumor to us.

    I always say "bo-neen" but only because Dramamine is pronounced "drama-meen" so I figure that's the right way

    Gosh, I never even thought of it...We say bo-nine(9), and I never really even considered there being another way to say it! LOL
    Come to think of it, though, I've never actually heard anyone else say it. I've only seen it on the boards...
    Hmmmmm....

    "bo 9" sounded too close to "bovine" to me, and because I didn't want to get a drug for cows by mistake, I said "bo-neen". ;)

    You guys are too funny! :rotfl: Thanks for my laugh of the day. I never know how to pronounce it either, so I just spell it for everyone. Actually I want to get "bonnie"n out of it myself. I have no idea why. :confused3 Whatever we call it, I know it works, and that's really what matters. :boat: pirate:

    Nah, you pronounce it that way because you're from Cleveland! (It is the right way to say it, after all!!! :teeth: ) I was born and raised in Lakewood, then I moved out to Bronco country...still love the Browns and still hate the Broncos!!!!

    Neen it is.

    Well, I guess I have always thought of it as bo(9), but after reading all the arguments I have been swayed to the "neen" side. Maybe we should post a poll....

    I'm a pharmacy school dropout, but I do remember one piece of info, and that is if the chemical ends in "ine", it's pronounced "een". But what about iodine and urine?, I asked my prof. Well, he said we all should be saying iodeen and ureen. :confused3

    All that I care is that is available for free outside the medical clinic onboard, right? :confused3

    Can anyone confirm that Bonine is available outside the clinic 24 hours a day if you get there and suddenly decide you are seasick? :confused3

    Thank you! We are sailing in less than 30 days on our first DCL cruise! :cool1:
