Taking an Alaskan Cruise ? What to Pack

Packing in general can be a hassle. But when going on an Alaskan cruise, it can be even harder because of the colder weather. Here are some general suggestions to make this task a little easier.

Casual clothing ? You will want to take some casual clothing for the daytime. This will include jeans, cords, turtlenecks, and sweaters.

Dress in layers ? If you dress in layers, you can add or subtract layers as the weather dictates.

Outerwear ? You probably will not need a heavy down coat if you dress in layers, however, you will need a jacket.

Dinner wear ? You will want to dress up for dinner each night. If you stick to a core wardrobe color, you can mix and match. Use bold accessories such as pins, necklaces, and scarves to change up the look.

Shoes ? Try to plan your wardrobe around one basic color so that your shoes will match everything. Of course, dinner shoes will be different from every-day shoes.

Misc ? Remember to take your camera and binoculars. Don't forget the film and extra batteries. An umbrella may also be needed.

By packing this way, you may be able to get everything into one suitcase and a backpack that you can carry with you on the plane. You'll be prepared and worry free!
