You will need a wide range of attire, anytime you go to Alaska. Average temp- could be 60-75, possible rain, cold at the glaciers. SO- bottom line, take a lightweight lined jacket, knit hat, gloves, rain gear, layers, 2 pair of walking shoes. Consider doing laundry to cut down on bulk. I always haul off in Skagway.

You said "haul off in Skagway". Is there a convienient laundromat available withing walking distance? If so where? And the cruise line doesn't have a problem, with you takeing a laundry bag off the ship to do this? Can you tell we are new to cruiseing?

Thanks
Jane

There is a shuttle bus, if needed from the cruise ship dock, $1.50 each way if needed, but I have walked and IF you want a great tour option of driving into the Yukon, take the rental car over and load up your laundry from the ship.

Laundry I have used for YEARS, Services Unlimited corner of 2nd and State. (look at a Skagway map) request their visitor guide www.skagway.com No problem taking laundry off the ship, can be done in a little over an hour with their fast propane dryers. Great potential conversation too.
