Getting Ready for Alaska cruise on Holland America

I am really getting charged up now about my upcoming press trip on MS Zuiderdam to Alaska (see link below for image and info).  My other half is in a dither about whether to wear black tie (I think the Americans say ‘tuxedo’?) or a dark suit.  Suit is easier to pack so that is obvious choice plus, we have been advised, that Alaska, as a destination, is quite casual which influences dress code.  But most excited about seeing the wildlife in Alaska.  On day 2 we will be taking a whale watching and citizen science adventure in Juneau which should be fab.  Day after that is Skagway and helicopter to the glacier, hiking trip and then ride on the White Pass and Yukon railway.  Much more to come but will keep you all fully posted.
