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.

Fancy a Movie Night in or Away?

By Haydn Jones

There is nothing my family love more than cuddling up of a Sunday night , curtains closed, eating microwave popcorn and watching a movie. Its become a Sunday night tradition in our house. Although there is something my two boys love slightly more – movies under the stars on a cruise. We often end up missing the shows and evening entertainment, because for them this is the perfect treat. Sun loungers, blankets, hot chocolate and even pop corn and pizza bought to you whilst watching a fil...

Well the day has come and gone. As you know from my previous blog the big day has come and gone. And Im officially 40! Do I feel any different? Not at the moment but lets see if this whole ‘life begins’ is true…..On a more serious note I couldnt believe the news I read that disgraced ‘Captain Coward’ Francesco Schettino made a statement saying after arrival at his jail cell – he would cope with jail and start by going back to being a ‘ship boy’ ...
