I will be sailing on the Infinity in July of 06, and was wondering if you could give me an idea on what type of clothes to pack, I know that its the summer month but don't think its going to be as warm there as it is where I am coming from......do I need to bring all typs of clothing????
You can pretty much expect to see some rain while you are on your cruise, so be sure to pack some rain gear. The best tip I got before we cruised in Alaska, is to dress in layers and peel them off as the day progresses. I packed a lot of t-shirts, a few sweat shirts, jacket, hat, gloves, etc. I even packed a pair of shorts, and yes, I was able to wear them 2 afternoons when the temps reached 70.
We were in Alaska for 3 weeks from June 22 til July 10th...it is summer there too and daylight lasts 23 hours so the key is pack light "layers". Always keep a fleece or sweatshirt hands - it can rain any time any place in the mountains. The temps ran from low-mid 70's to as hi as 85 degrees! At night (duh!) it doesn't get cool because the sun never really sets - if you blink you will miss the sunset/sunrise transition! I word short sleeves or tank tops and wrapped a hoodie around my waist just in case. Warning.....there are 52 varieties of flies that hatch in June-July near Denali and points north. They emerge hungry and in swarms if you are around the wilderness areas - not so in the cities. Use DEET it will deter all the insects up there
