What Should I Expect on a Winter Cruise?

During a winter cruise, you should expect a mixture of activities on land and at sea. Winter cruises, such as those headed to Alaska, include fun activities that range from visits to native-tribe reservations to wildlife watching. A common concern from first timers is the cold temperature. However, rest assured that you will be provided with heating systems in whatever method of transportation you use during the tour. Most winter cruises involve wildlife watching, so it is a good idea to carry binoculars and digital cameras at all times so you don't miss any of the action. Also, you can expect very dry and sunny weather, so make sure to carry moisturizer, lip balm, sunblock, a hat and a good pair of gloves.
