We took this cruise (on Island Princess) last May. It was wonderful! Everyone had warned us that it would be cold and rainy, but the weather was great.

I also suggest layers. I found a reversible raincoat with a zip out lining at K-Mart for about $25.00 . It was perfect! I never needed to use the lining and the coat was very light. A heavy winter coat would have been much too warm. Since you're from Arkansas, think of an average October day.

We never needed the gloves, scarf or hat, but you might. It really just depends on how cool (or cold) weather affects you.

I'm sure you'll have a wonderful cruise,
