Neil Down - Answered a Question by whetton (08 Aug 07 23:21)

You go to Alaska and you get pot luck as far as the weather is concerned. I went a couple of years ago in Spetember, in fact the last cruise of the season. The weather apart from 2 days was brilliant even in Ketchikan where they get 13 feet of rain a year. Take some waterproofing for almost certainly you will get some rain but enjoy Infinity and Alaska they are both beautiful Neil Down .

We must have been on the same Infinity cruise in September 2005 as the previous replier. We were late arriving at the Hubbard Glacier because of the weather but the ship sailed through the rough seas spectacularly and the Captain did a great job sailing into the waves.

I agree, you do take pot luck with the weather. We had heavy rain the whole of our cruise. Friends had been to the same place a month earlier and had beautiful weather. Like a boy scout, be prepared for all types of weathe.

Agree. Just take a good waterproof topcoat. The fleeces for sale in shops at the ports of call are less than half the price of the UK and there is a vast varity to choose from.

Just returned from alaska weather was good cold morning and night. Need a mixture of clothes jumpers and jackets that you can take of if warm. I agree the jackets and fleeces in the shops are very cheap so buy them there submitted by Aspinall Brighouse 25 Aug 2007.

Over the last few years here at www.CRUISE.co.uk we have seen the cruise industry change massively. Gone are the days when a simple cruise will suffice, people are now wanting more from their cruise.We are seeing a steady rise in the requirements to do a land stay prior to the cruise (or after it in some cases). Not only that but people are wanting tours and particularly escorted tours that really give an essence of that region.Our most popular package of the last few years has undoubtedly been...
