Default Re: Alaska in Jun/July WHAT TO WEAR??

Can I wear my formal dresses that I would wear in the Caribbean, just with a wrap??
Or is this cruise an excuse for a new wardrobe entirely?
Thanks for your advice!!
Alaska is nice and it can get pretty warm in July. I Packed mostly capri's short sleeve tops and a couple of light buttoned sweater. Had a couple pairs of shorts just in case it got real hot. One year I went in Aug and the temperatures were 90 (unusual for Alaska). I wore long pants , and sweater for the inside passage ( I didn't find it as cold as it looks). I've been there twice and I found it to be quite beautiful. Have a good time.
