I have patiently scrolled through the now-over-a-hundred postings on the " Alaska -- who's booked?" thread and haven't found anyone on our boat (whoops...ship!). Anyone booked on Radiance August 2nd...there's gotta be someone!
There are plenty of posts on packing, so scroll back, you won't need your ski wear, try lighter, but in layers. Bugs aren't a problem unless you are considering heavy duty hiking interior, I haven't encountered them at the inside passage ports, but almost got carried away at Wonder Lake.
Wow...it's great to hear from someone else who'll be on our ship! Although my husband and I are first-time cruisers, so I don't know for sure the bug-quota onboard, we do live in the North of Canada, so I think I know bugs. You should take mosquito repellent if you plan to go hiking or walking anywhere there are trees -- the bugs live in or near treed areas. A small bottle of bug repellent ought to do -- and make sure it contains DEET or it won't be effective enough.
By the bye, have you noticed any roll calls for our sailing? I've been looking but it seems every other sailing has them but the 2nd.?
