Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: be prepared for any kind of weather !
This picture looks like a pretty warm day, but it was rather cold anyway !

Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: It also makes sense, to take a warm sleeping-bag with you for a cruise into Arctic seas of Spitzbergen and Alaska.
It is great to spend the afternoon sitting in a deckchair - enjoying the landscape passing by - NOT freezing at all in a warm sleepingbag !

Miscellaneous: And in general: take with you shirts, pullovers and jackets that you are able to unzip, when the weather gets warmer and close the zip when it gets colder ! I mean several thin layers, that you can unzip laywer by layer are much better than 1 thick jacket !

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
