An Alaskan cruise is a great way to spend a vacation. Those who travel during June through August have the opportunity to watch the giant glacial ice begin to melt. The important thing, though, involves bringing the right clothes for the trip.
Staying warm is the most important part of an Alaskan cruise; a long sleeve shirt, a sweatshirt and a hooded coat are great options.
Standing on the cruise ship often results in soaked clothing, as the water shoots up onto the deck; wearing a waterproof jacket is a good bet.
Comfortable, older shoes are crucial for a cruise, as wearing new shoes often causes blisters. Heavy duty socks are also needed.
An Alaskan cruise still requires protection from the sun. Wear good quality sunscreen and sunglasses at all times.
Always wear insect repellent on board the cruise ship, as there are a number of insects that can be irritating.
