What To Take With You On An Alaska Cruise

Jan 8, 2008
When planning on an Alaska Cruise there are some things you should make sure you take with you and some items that you should get prior to your cruise. Simply by being organized you can make sure you are able to enjoy your visit to Alaska and make the most of your vacation. Most of the items are simply commonsense items however they can be easily overlooked.

Taking out some form of travel protection or insurance will be a good idea when you book your cruise. This insurance will provide you with different types of cover and will take effect immediately. Generally people like to plan ahead and so book their cruise well before they are due to travel. Nobody knows what is going to happen in advance and holiday insurance will cover you for illness, injury or death. This covered is extended to cover everyone traveling provided they are listed on the insurance policy. So even if it's the day before you are due to travel the insurance should cover any costs.

Travel Protection Insurance not only covers cancellation but also whilst you are on your cruise in Alaska. Insurance cover should cover your medical bills in the event of serious injury or illness of anyone named on the policy. The holiday insurance should also cover your luggage and personal belongings in the even of theft. Make sure the insurance cover you have is adequate for your needs and everyone named on it is also fully covered as well.

If you are traveling from the United States make sure you have valid travel documents such as a valid passport or a copy of your birth certificate and appropriate photo identification. This will enable you to get back home in the event that the cruise leaves from Canada or makes a port of call in a Canadian port. For all other travelers you will already have your passports to gain entry to Canada or the United States already.

Don't forget to take appropriate clothing for a cruise in Alaska. Proper clothing includes clothing that is considered smart but casual and also appropriate attire for the formal evenings. Swimwear should also be taken if you want to use the pool or Jacuzzi.

Make sure you pack appropriate clothing for the time of year for your trip to Alaska. A good idea is to wear your clothes in layers this will keep you warm and comfortable at the same time. Remember your hiking boots if you want to join one of the more adventurous excursions whilst in Alaska.

If you don't like small bars of soap and small bottles of shampoo pack your own. The cruise ship will provide you with similar selection of soap as well as shampoo as you would expect in a hotel. Remember to pack your toothpaste, toothbrushes and any lotions. Make sure you take enough for the duration of your cruise and enough for everyone.

Take extra spending money for emergencies or if you want to dime out whilst in a port of call or for shopping. Don't take large amounts of cash it is advisable to take travelers cheques as these can be replaced, cash can't. Credit cards are widely accepted in Alaska.
