Default Alaska May/June - weather?

We are thinking about booking an Alaskan cruise for the last week of May beginning of June. What were your experiences weather-wise during this time frame in Alaska? I know weather can vary greatly from year to year, but an idea of what past travellers have experienced will give us a better idea of what we are getting into. Rainy, cold, warm, frigid, etc? Any other advice you might want to pass along would be appreciated too. Thanks a million!

We were there at the end of May last year. Weather was fine, no rain, cool weather in the high 50's and low 60's for the most part. We wore parkas while visiting Hubbard Glacier and a couple of other times, otherwise just dressed in layers. We wore shorts on the way back through the inland passage because it was so warm. Apparently there is less rain in southeastern Alaska in May than there is in July or August. My parents went up there in July and got lots of overcast and rainy days. I'm sure the weather is unpredictable, but we will be going again this May two weeks earlier than last year. Check out the destination forum under Alaska for more info. Have a great time!

We also were there in May, the first ship of the season as a matter of fact. It wasn't crowded in the ports and the weather was great. No rain, sunny every day and in 50's-60's. I read a review of the same cruise the week after we were there and they had rain. So you just don't know. The cruise line does hand out umbrellas on rainy days. Hope you are as lucky as we were.

We were there in first part of June and it was beautiful. We were taking off all jackets at Hubbard Glacier...it was shorts weather! We had no rain at any ports it was just incredible. However, our waiter said our cruise was the first one that it had not rained at every port for the past month (this was in '03) so I know it can vary. Good luck. No matter what, Alaska is breathtaking and I would go again in a heartbeat!
