Hello! Our cruise sales on 5/2/08 - Its only 58 days away and we are now getting very excited. It's called Fire and Ice and starts in Hawaii and finishes in Vancouver - hence the name. This cruise has targeted the Australian market - its really 2 cruises in one. My biggest concern is packing for 2 seasons. We are thinking that after Hawaii - we will probably mail home our light clothes. Could anyone tell me what the temperature is like in Alaska in May. I have searched weather records and it looks pretty cold. What we were thinking was to get thermal undergarments and dress in layers - but I would like to buy an anorak/parka but they are so darn big and bulky - any suggestions???
