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.

What Jane failed to show/mention

By Kerry James

I have been watching this series of Cruising with Jane McDonald (Friday nights at 9pm on Channel 5), and thought that when she was on MSC and Viking she did show more of the ship to the watcher/cruiser which I did think was lacking in the first series.I was surprised MSC had them back on as in the first series she didnt really show of the MSC Divina but was pleased to see that she was showing the newest ship in the fleet – MSC Meraviglia (at the moment until the MSC Seaside and MSC Seav...

As you read this I will have started my own holiday – and yes you have guessed it I am off on a cruise…Firstly I will be spending 3 nights in the Mestre area of Venice to explore this beautiful city which I must admit to having never been to before (other than landing at the airport for a transfer to Trieste in April) I am looking forward to strolling around the beautiful streets, stopping for an ice-cream or a coffee in a lovely square and also to exploring the waterways of Veni...

Ryanair are a joke!

By Neil Holmes

Neil Holmes's blog

Well you have read the news. Ryanair are planning to cancel 40-50 flights a day…..yes A DAY because they have messed up their pilots holiday rota’s!!! I thought Michael O’Leary’s hair brained idea of ‘low cost standing room only on his flights’ was nonsense but I couldn’t believe my ears when I heard this news. Firstly are all their pilots taking holiday in Sept-Oct ? Is there a cheap deal we don’t know about and all the staff at Ryanair are...
