Default dressing on the cruise?

We are going on a cruise to Alaska leaving May 31 - northbound Vancouver to Seward. I am wondering what to pack for evenings - do people dress like it is spring or for the cooler temperatures that are outside? What will the temps be like on the boat? I assume they don't need air conditioning.

Default Re: dressing on the cruise?

I only have one type of evening dress, fairly all weather and I always take a shawl, jacket or sweater with me. I learned the hard way on a Carnival cruise. My formalwear in those days was pretty flimsy. After the first formal night when I literally turned blue with cold, I ate in the alternative dining room the other formal night. That way I could stay casual and in warm clothes. People don't seem to dress as elaborately in Alaska as they do in the Caribbean.

In our experience on several cruises to Alaska, most passengers
dressed in accordance with cruise standards and similarly as on
other destinations. Once big exception---the cruise ship will be
warmed and conditioned, but the outside weather can be very
cold. Take a heavy coat, with hood for rain, hats and gloves. We
have observed many with ear muffs. Whatever the weather, Alaska
is a beautiful place to visit. ENJOY
