ok this has nothing to do with having vasculitis but I NEED HELP lol who has...
How exciting, Kelly! I haven't been on one, but living in Canada I can say that it might be good to bring layers of clothes because of the change in temps. There is a lot of info that I googled, and this is a good one, I thought.. if the link works.

I sent it to you in a private message. Have a great time!
My friend is actually currently on an Alaskan Cruise right now and she's having a blast. I would take a little of everything. and if the weather is one way or the other, I am sure they have launder services if you need to get something cleaned again to wear.
Are you going soon, Kelly? I'm curious, where does the cruise go? Would love to see pics when you return..
Try this link too..
Alaska Weather & Forecast Map
Hi Kelly! It may depend on where you are going! I have cousins who live in Juneau which has apparently completely different weather than up north..If it helps(?) The weather in Juneau when I've visited in the summer is around 50-70 degrees..Beautiful! Perhaps you could check the weather at each port you are going to? I like a site called wunderground.com.
Kelly, I lived in Juneau for 7 years - loved every second - plan on rain, misty rain, sun, clouds, plan on layering. It is better to layer 2 t-shirts or 3. Have a rain jacket and rain hat, light gloves that will fit easily into your pocket. Layering of shirts provides the 3 layers of shirt plus the 2 layers of air that end up between the shirts - sounds weird, but. . .it works. My students would layer up to 7 shirts in the winter, LOL. If you are going on tours (walking, etc.) you can also double up on light socks. Good walking shoes would be a must. The cruise ships usually stop in Ketchikan (gets almost the most rain in Alaska - it is a coastal rain forest and it rains about 320 days a year). In Juneau the average is 90 inches of rain a year plus the other stuff. The ports in between can be misty or sunny or cloudy. Ahhh, I'm jealous. I absolutely love Juneau and Southeast Alaska. Have so much fun.
An Alaskian cruise or visit there is on my bucket list.
I actually went to college in Fairbanks however that's TOTALLY different than Juneau .... I leave May 30 for Canada and get on the ship June 1 :-) thanks for all your words of wisdom!!
I was in Alaska in August 2010. Wear layered clothes as a main outfit. When I was in Fairbanks in August I was sweating it was so hot in the sun. Chilly on the cruise around Fjords National Park (I was bundled up) with a down vest and rainjacket. Good walking shoes. Had 70's weather in Anchorage. You will love this cruise and I wish you a great time
