My family is taking a southbound cruise from Anchorage in the middle of July. My sister and I having been thoroughly acclimatized to Hawaii's weather, are starting to freak out about how cold it will be on the ship's deck viewing glaciers. The weather forecast don't look to bad but I figure with the wind chill factor it could be cold. I have a ski parka from my old day ski days, do I need to bring that? How about thermal underwear or is that going overboard. (I don't even want to think about how cold overboard would be LOL).

Remember this is from a guy, who was shivering all winter long in Hawaii. (To be fair it was one of the coldest winter in Hawaii). I can hear the sounds of violins playing all over the forums.

I would pack one suitcase with heavy jacket and winter stuff. Pack it separate and only have your warmest stuff in it. If you need it you got it. If not it comes back unpacked.We went in June and we used them.

If it is after 5:00 when I post I reserve the right to disavow anything I posted.
