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 had to do a search on BARANOF to find your topic. You might want to put a link to it here. I've thought of posting questions in the Alaska destination sub-forum, or in the Small Ship subforum. Just haven't had time to do that though. Sitka this morning--45F, 35 wind chill, 11MPH winds. Rain. Sounds like January! LOL!
June 8-17th Cruise
