Plenty of times. Be prepared and have good rain gear. Consider wearing wind pants and NOT jeans, take forever to dry, tend to get and stay damp. I don't like umbrellas since they occupy your hands and have gotten a lot of use out of my cheap long poncho- avoid the short ones if possible.

Penny,
You can almost always expect rain in Alaska, hopefully it will not ruin an entire day, but after all it is a rain forest. Be sure to pack some rain-gear along with those hats and gloves, but most of all ENJOY! Its absolutely beautiful, rain and all, have fun.

We were in Juneau on May 12 and it poured all day - sure did not ruin our vacation - we all had rain gear and a wonderful time!

Thank you all for the advice as I sigh in relief. We will be on the Coral Princess May 23 travelling North Vancouver-Seward. First cruise ever and I'm ready to fall in love with Alaska. Bon Voyage!
