I went to Alaska in May 2005, if I can answer any questions, please ask away. I sailed on NCL Star. Sneakers were a must to pack. I wore them in port and around the ship. I changed into dress shoes for dinner.

Pack a sweater/sweat shirt for the theraters the A/C is freezing and I am typically never cold.

Make sure to have a rain coat packed, just a light weight one. Dress in layers while in port

Sneakers are fine as long as they are nice and comfortable. If any glacier walks you'll need something a bit warmer, but for regular excursions and exploring towns, they will do.

Yes, do pack your sneakers. We went to Alaska the second week in Sept 2008. It sure made walking in the ports nice. All the advice I received from cruisemates about dressing in layers made my trip very comfortable. I am glad I listened. For once, I did not overpack. Very good advice here.....
