Haven't been on a cruise to Alaska, but did have friends that lived there for a few years that I visited. The weather is always fickle. It can be 80 one minute and 40 the next. The sun can be shining, then all of a sudden, here comes the rain. If it truly is a good deal, take it, it's beautiful country. I'm sure the cruises are fantastic. It's just not on my list right now, I want to do the Panama Canal and Europe first, then maybe Alaska. But we love snorkeling, so right now, the Caribbean is our choice.

Hey Tim, We went on an Alaskan cruise May, 2007. And yes it was cool and rainy. However, after the 2nd day, the sun came out and it was great weather for the rest of the cruise. Temps in the 50's We were on the Island Princess and the pool was heated. You just have to hurry for your towel once you get out and the cold air hits you. LOL. Weather is a crap shoot. We checked weather.com every day and it said 60% chance of rain the whole time. What do they know. It's a great cruise. I would bring a pancho along just in case. RickyB
