The cruise ship season is upon Vancouver and many of our guests will be boarding a cruise ship on an exciting cruise to Alaska soon. For that reason, we did our research and compiled a list of The Top 20 items that the passengers should bring them on their cruise. Check out Alaska Cruises website for a more detailed and printable packing list as well as some other great packing tips for cruisers!
