I went in early June and the breeze on deck as we got further north was quite cold (in fact very cold at times!). I wore a zip up fleece and a thin thermal benny hat as my ears were frozen. Having said that when we got to Juneau I got sunburnt when on the hill overlooking the town so on land it will be quite a lot warmer. Don't forget that the ship will be sailing through icy water (you get seals basking on small ice flows as the ship progresses up to the glacial areas) but the sun can be very intense so you need sun screen. On the positive side I never had any rain on my trip but I think the clear sky contributed to the chill. From what other passengers said it can vary from week to week. Hope this helps.

It depends on the time of year. We went in June just taking a couple of warm pullovers and umbrellas. The shops in the ports of call have some fabulous warm winter coats which, although made in China, are much cheaper and thicker than any at home.
