Default Alaska & swimsuit?

does any one take their swim suit to Alaska? Maybe in the hot tub? Trying to keep the packing down to a couple of bags.
Thanks

HI Sea,
Yes, I'd pack that suit, depending on when you are going...We went later in the season and people did use the hot tubs, only the brave souls actually swam in the pool, mostly kids...

You didn't mention when you were going, but we went on the NCL Sun in late May/early June 2003. It was in the high 90's all the way from Seattle to Juneau. The bus driver to the Mendenhall Glacier claimed the bus didn't have air conditioning (though many swore they heard her turn it on when we left the bus). Some people nearly passed out and she did nothing but joke about it. The only ugly part to the entire trip, I might add. The one thing that made the hot weather more than worth it--Glacier Bay was unreal, fantastically clear. One tip, if you don't have a balcony, (or have one on the opposite side) find out which side is best for viewing the glaciers, and pick your spot well before you near them. On our ship, everyone rushed to the buffet dining room and crowded not only the tables, but the windows. Should you decide to dine and watch, find your table well ahead of time. Enjoy!
