We sailed from Vancouver on the Volendam last year on 14th June. We always had to have a light jacket on when on deck and when in the area of the glaciers had to put a fleece on top of it, and my husband wore a hat. Otherwise the weather was clear with sunshine and only one day of rain when leaving Vancouver. I think the best idea is to wear layers. Maybe in August it will be warmer. It is a fantastic trip, good luck.

Pack sensibly , you will need layers when in The Glaciers and light clothing on Board. It rained more in showers than anything. We travelled out of Vancouver last week, you are in for a treat.... the scenery is unbelievable.... We travelled on RCI, but saw two Holland America Ships, they looked very Grand!! Enjoy .

We travelled with Holland America to Alaska last year in August. The weather was sunny but cold. Wear layers and sensible shoes. I didnt think to take a hat and scarf and ended up buying one out there. It is probably my favourite cruise. The views are breathtaking. The ship and service fabulous. Have a fantastic time.

Celebrity earlier this week came out with some very exciting news that the Celebrity Edge will launch earlier than planned, although I understand the disappointment from those that have already booked thinking they had booked the maiden voyages although this seems to becoming more of a thing as both the Harmony and Symphony have done new sailings after announce a sailings, including the Maiden Voyage.The Celebrity Edge was due to come out in December this year, however she will now have five ...

Picking up my Shanghai Blog from last year – you can read the last one hereAfter a great night in Suzhou, we were due to check out of the hotel to move on back to Shanghai. We went for breakfast in the hotel restaurant we found this to be much more traditional and didnt have the selection we were afforded at the hotel in Shanghai. There were pastries and there was what looked like an omelette station but much of the selection was very Asian based – we fueled up ready for our d...
