Ladies of Majestic (I just love saying that) There are lists of things to bring/not to bring, pack/not to pack, ect/ect on previous connect group posts for other cruises and there will be an extensive list on this one as well closer to sail time. There are lots of new "cruise rules" from ships concerning what you can and cannot bring on board (liquor, bottled water, soda) but this too will be discussed further down the road. It's going to be great to shop for the cruise during the after winter sales 2012 so those winter items on a list that you will need in Alaska is a great list to start now. (I know I'll be needing some new outer gear like a good all around winter coat for excursions) Other than those kinds of items you can get on sale, like I said, that list will be extensive in July/August/Sept 2012. So for now Ladies of Majestic, sit back, dream of Alaska and those excursions -- and we'll worry about what to pack and bring in 2012 !!
