A cruise to Alaska is an unforgettable experience: braving the cold northern seas to finally reach America's mountain capped frontier is an adventure many dream of. Packing for this special trip poses unique challenges: how to pack for temperature fluctuations of sunny days and cold nights.
Rather than the typical flip flops and swimsuits you'd pack to set sail closer to the hemisphere, you'll want to pack warmly - even in the summer months of June, July and August, nighttime temperatures are rarely above fifty degrees and even colder out on the open ocean.
Tibetan Socks, hand knit in the Himalayas from pure 100% New Zealand sheeps wool are the best slipper socks to take with you on your cruise up to the frosty north. Lined in soft fleece, they provide insulation and breathability with the comfort of a hand stitched felt sole for walking around your cabin room.
