Neil and Ida Down - Answered a Question by Howlett (14 May 08 19:44)

The answer is that you might get the odd day when T shirts are ok but be prepared for cooler weather and probably some rain. Ketchikan for instance has 23 feet of rain a year and a lot of the others are not far off this. It will be very cold if you go up The Pass at Skagway. Take layers of clothing that way you can always take stuff off (and some rainwear). Just to brighten it we had a superb cruise, the last one of the season, in September with some brilliantly warm days and some wet days and some cold days so don't despair it's a great place to go. ...Nei.

We cruised in September on the same ship and wore t shirts, but on some days needed a sweater. Cruising up to Hubbard Glacier needed every amount of warm clothing you had got!!!! Did go in the outdoor pool too. Very mixed temperatures, but overall very pleasant. I would suggest you take clothing as if you were holidaying in the UK!!! (a bit of everything.

It can be quite warm so t-shirts may be the order of the day. Take plenty of insect repellent as the mosquitoes(non-malarial) can be ferocious. It's a beautiful place.

After an amazing trip to Lapland and a fantastic Christmas with the family our festivities were cut short as I was taken into hospital just after Christmas.

As you can imagine this was not how I planned to see in the new year but as we all know these things happen and I am very grateful to have been very well looked after and now recovered.I was very well looked after by our amazing NHS, I know they ge...

What No Kisses On My Pillow?!!

By Lily Canderton

Lily Canderton's blog

10 years ago a tradition of the nightly turn down service on ships was a Chocolate Kiss on your pillow but this now seems to be a thing of the past according to a recently returned cruise passengerI hear all the time from passengers that ‘standards are not what they used to be’ with less and less being included and more and more being an added payable extra – Are cruise lines cutting corners just too much?Even the Berlitz Guide author commented that standards are slipping in...
