Continuing my planning for our upcoming Alaska cruise, this is the perfect outfit for an active (or not-so-active) shore excursion. Layers are key, as is a waterproof outer shell. You don’t want to go too thick or you’ll look bulky and get hot (yes, even in Alaska). Believe it or not, the Inside Passage ports (Skagway, Sitka, Juneau, Ketchikan) are in a rainforest ecosystem, so expect at least a sprinkle of rain. When the sun does come out, it can warm up quickly, so you’ll want to be able to peel things off. If you’re doing some hiking or zip lining, you’ll want sturdy shoes and a good bag to carry your essentials and, of course, your camera!
