Expect cold if you go up the White Pass and on or by by the glaciers, expect wet everywhere and when it isn't raining or drizzling it could be soon and expect some warm even hottish sunshine, oh yes and some wind because that is their weather throughout the summer. It is beautiful and worth going to but as it says, be prepared for anything.... Neil.

If you are going to Alaska in the Northern Summer (which is the only cruising period)the weather in the Southern parts will be very similar to that of the UK. It can be changeable and it can be wet but equally can be pleasantly warm. In the Winter it can be a little different!!

Take a warm jacket etc as you will be amongst the glaciers and snow, the weather can be biting cold or similar to when the sun shines on a sking holiday.

By Gina Rowan

I wish I had a pound for every time I have been asked this question. I could have sailed around the world in Luxury! Aah yes! but would I choose Port or Starboard for my cabin? Or left side versus the right side of the ship?I suppose it depends on where you’re headed. I know that quite a few seasoned cruisers swear by the Starboard side. Although it really depends on what type of cruise you are on.For instance, if you are sailing in one direction, North or West generally people pr...

My NON cruise holiday this Easter.

By Haydn Jones

Haydn Jones's blog

I’ve just come back from a family Easter holiday to Spain, surprisingly not on a cruise this time. My children are of the age where we have to go away during school holidays. We decided on Benalmadena, Spain as we have been before , its not too far, and the boys love it there. The weather was absolutely glorious, we were so lucky this time of year to have 10 days of boiling sunshine. Benalmdena is a town on southern Spain’s Costa del Sol, known for its beaches and the modern Pue...
