Hi, my husband and I are booked on the Alaska Inside Passage cruise on June 8th - June 17th. The ship is ADC's Baranof Dream, and we're in one of the A cabins. Packing for our first trip Alaska and our first cruise on a ship this size. Alaska Dream Cruises recommends soft-sided luggage. Looking at the cabin floorplan, there's no wardrobe or close in the A cabins, but there are some built-in drawers under the beds and in a bulkhead wall. Has anyone here sailed on the Baranoff Dream and can give recommendations on luggage?
Would rolling duffle bags be a problem because of the wheels and fitting them into whatever storage space there may be for luggage? Or should we opt for plain rugged duffles that can collapse and fit into a drawer?
Our regular luggage is soft-topped/rigid side Rick Steves/Travelite carry-ons. If these can be pushed under a bed, perhaps they would work?
We try to travel light and are looking at one suitcase or duffle each, camera bag, and maybe a small tote type of bag.
Jackie & Lucien Lane

I have a Cheapy Charlie lightweight extension cord in my suitcase. I like that I can put all my electronics where I can see them and therefore nothing gets left behind. Mine has one 3 prong socket on one side (for larger plugs) and two three prong on the other. Check wall plug to ensure it is not 3 prong or you may not be able to use unless you carry 3 to 2 prong adapter as well. I started doing this when visiting National Parks and some rooms had only one available outlet. If you can get a bright color even better than you don't leave the cord behind either!
