We are cruising Alaska in late August. Helpful hints on type of clothing to pack?
Alaska Travel & Packing
Always bring a good sweater. A lightweight weatherproof windbreaker is also a very good idea.
I have lived in the area and even on land anywhere I have those with me.
Layers! You will want to bring lots of layers as the temperature swings throughout the day can be 30 degrees +. Here is a full packing guide we put together after cruising in Alaska during early September. Oh, and a rain coat (pack able is better) you are going to need it! http://eatsleepcruise.com/2015/05/what-to-pack-for-an-alaskan-cruise-for-your-next-alaskan-cruise/
Thank you! We don't mind cooler weather (in fact, it is our favorite). Don't want to over or under pack. Thanks again!
Seattle to Seattle. Sounds like Mid-Westerners will do just fine if we plan on layering clothing. Thank you for your input!
Not to get nosy, Toontes, but what line are you on? We are on Celebrity departing Seattle on 8/26.
Carnival Legend! Alaska is a bucket list item and we are very excited to spend out anniversary there!
Great information. I have been kicking around an Alaskan cruise but not sure since I don't really like the cold and prefer the sun and sand. Then on the other hand, how else am I going to get my Artic Circle Certificate?
Alaska is my bucket list too... I decided on my lunch break I need to start investigating and deciding which line is best, which itinerary and then go from there.
A hat or ear muffs is essential when up on deck ... wouldn't have enjoyed the glaciers as much with the wind blowing and chilly temperature.
