We did this cruise & land tour May 2002. Totally unprepared for extremes of weather. On board my fur hat had an outing everyday. There was still a lot of snow & ice on land tour & my walking boots came into their own. Further we got into Alaska hotter it got, wished I had taken couple of pairs shorts. We were on Star Princess & had two formal eves, apart from that smart casual what you would wear to a very nice restaurant. Totally agree have your dressy evening attire in seperate case, so after cruise no need to unpack. If the helicopter trip to glacier still an option, definately book it. Lastly have a wonderful time.

Along with most lines 'semi formal' i.e. jacket required has been dropped, formal & smart casual are the two main dress codes.......Wilba.

We went on a landtour/cruise last year with Princess You are going to have a realy wonderful time. Pack clothes for the landtour in a seoerate case to your cruise, The coach driver then only needs to take your coach holiday clothes on & off the coach. You will need a warm jacket & layers of clothes (so you can put on if cold or take off if warm) But you should get some good warm days in June. For the cruise we had 2 Formal nights the rest were smart casual (no jackets) Have a lovely time.

P&O Cruises recently announced that that would be building a 9th ship to join the P&O Fleet in 2020. This comes only two years after the Britannia was released and I am pleased to say that after quite a few problems she has become a firm favourite in the P&O Fleet.Hopefully P&O will take forward the feedback on Britannia but we are yet to see what this new ship will look like; all P&O have said is that she will be 180,000 Gross tons and carry 5,200 Guests. This is the larg...

It is a known fact that regardless of the ship or the cruise line that you are sailing with – the cabins are how shall we say …’on the small side’ Lets face it unless you are in a suite (which the majority of people are probably not) then all cabins are restricted on space. But imagine if you know a few tricks to make that cabin space bigger or at least feel like it!Read on to find out which cruise essentials you should be taking with you, that won’t take up much...

Your River Cruise Questions An...

By Hannah Wilson

Hannah Wilson's blog

 Any one who has followed my Blog over the years knows that my favourite type of cruising is river cruising. I did my first river cruise about 6 years ago, the first of many, and I have never looked back. It ticks all the boxes for me, small ships, friendly staff and passengers, fabulous scenery all day every day, and being docked right in the centre of which ever city you are visiting so no long transfers, not to mention fabulous food!I just find that I enjoy these cruises so much more...
