Hi, we were in Alaska last september, it was not cold but it rained for four out of seven days, but that can be expected and did not spoil what was the best Cruise we have done - take a mixture of clothing plus a good waterproof jacket and you should be alright. the scenery is spectacular and always be on the watch for whales, enjoy your cruise .

The weather in South Alaska is very similar to that of the UK and should not be cold in September. If you venture into the interior or to the North it can be a different story. It can change quite rapidly so prepare for anything. Many of the pictures you see are in the Winter just because it is much more photogenic.

We booked all our excursions through Royal Caribbean on line before we sailed and enjoyed every one of them with the exception of the Native Village Tour in Ketchikan. We found that one a little disappointing. The one we really enjoyed was the Whale watiching with lunch at the Ocra Point Lodge. That was great and we saw lots of whales and lunch was fabulous. We also enjoyed the tour up onto the Yukon by coach, returning on the train through the White Pass that was worth doing at Skagway. (Thme weather was sgreat as well) JT.

What is the dress code?

By Rosie Taylor

This is a question that comes up quite a lot when deciding which cruise to book.It really does depend on the cruise line.The general rule is 2 formal nights per week.How formal is formal? Well, this is a good question because recently a customer of mine came home from a cruise with Royal Caribbean and even on the formal nights some people where really casual. Trousers and polo shirts. Not even a shirt and tie!It seems that Royal Caribbean have really relaxed the dress code.Celebrity cruises ...

P&O Cruises recently announced that that would be building a 9th ship to join the P&O Fleet in 2020. This comes only two years after the Britannia was released and I am pleased to say that after quite a few problems she has become a firm favourite in the P&O Fleet.Hopefully P&O will take forward the feedback on Britannia but we are yet to see what this new ship will look like; all P&O have said is that she will be 180,000 Gross tons and carry 5,200 Guests. This is the larg...

It is amazing how many guest I have spoken to over the last few weeks that have booked excursions through the cruise liner, which I may add are quite expensive. Cruise liners make a lot of money selling excursions at a hefty premium, but many people are happy to pay the extra because booking with the ship is the easy option and they have the comfort of knowing the captain will not leave port until everyone on his ships tours is back on board. I totally understand the reasons behind this but b...
