    We're going on the Alaska cruise in August. I'm wondering how to pack. It will be summer but it is Alaska. So, will it be warm or cold? Please help!

    Hi Diane,

    Alaskan cruises are so beautiful!  Make sure you have a lot of memory cards for your camera.  In the summer, temperatures in Alaska range from 60 to 80 degrees.  Evenings and mornings are cooler, ranging between the 40s and 50s. 

    To be comfortable in Alaska in August you need to dress in layers.  The day will start out chilly and warm up considerably.  For Port Adventures you'll need comfortable shoes for walking, if you are hiking; boots.  Make sure that you pack a rain jacket or umbrella because it can rain at any time.   Your pools will be heated so take your bathing suit with you.  Remember, dress code is mostly cruise casual unless it's formal night or you are dining at the adults only restaurant, Palo. 

    I hope this helps Diane.  I'm wishing you a magical sailing.  Thanks for visiting the Moms Panel!
