Does anyone have any information about the dog-sled excursion,especially ,again, pertaining to clothing .
For most locations, a sweater or sweatshirt and a waterproof nylon windbreaker are quite sufficient.

In the bays containing glaciers and on the glaciers themselves, the air temperature is typically in the upper 30's. Note that the bays in the vicinity of the glaciers are full of ice water due to the calving of the glaciers, so it cools the air above the bay quite a bit. In these areas, you really will appreciate a heavy (winter) jacket, gloves, and a warm hat.

Have a great cruise!
