I live in India, and there lies the rub! I don't want to buy cold weather gear that I'll never use again, but I don't want to freeze on the zodiac excursions. Also, paying a whole lot of excess baggage is a concern. My questions are (1) what kind of parka do you get on this cruise? How bulky? Waterproof or water resistant?(2) where can I rent or buy clothes that will be delivered to the ship? (3) Are there inexpensive retail outlets to buy clothing, like K-Mart, Target, etc, for some stuff? Do you need to get specialised clothing.
Will be grateful for all advice and suggestions. Thanks in advance.
