Number one Don't do HAL to Alaska unless you are over 60!!!
The weather can be hot or cold. Very hard to predict. I would pack as if it was fall in the North East. Cool, but you can dress in layers.

That's ridiculous telling the OP not to sail HAL to Alaska unless they are over 60.

The last Alaska cruise we did the beginning of September a couple of years ago, everyone at our table was under 50, in fact one couple was in their late 30's and the other 2 in their 40's.....we were in our late 60's and we all had a great time. That particular cruise there were very few children on board because they were back in school.

I do agree about packing as if it was Fall in the N/E as it can be rainy and cold, but then again, it can be very warm. Our day in Skagway started out cool, but by the afternoon we were in shorts.

I would suggest taking an umbrella, good walking shoes, hat and gloves/mitts, warm jacket and a couple of sweaters - layering your clothes is the best way to go. Weather in Alaska is very unpredictable, no matter when you go.
