I am a little confused about what weather to expect in September, first 3 weeks. I am prepared for the rain but can't figure out whether we need heavy jumpers, scarf and gloves or not.

Take clothes you can layer.  It can be 70s and sunny, or 50s and rainy, etc.  Always take rain jacket and hat and gloves, regardless.  When the ship is moving, it is really chilly outdoors on deck, so be prepared.

You should pack a water proof (not water resistant) outer layer.  You should expect to have gloves and a head covering.  I don't pack a wool scarf but pack a "buff" (this is the name of the company -- google for a photo).  I don't pack wool sweaters but will have both a light weight (often referred to a "micro" fleece in the US) and a heavier fleece too; these can be layered for more warmth.  And depending on your activity level water proof walking shoes are a must, at least for us.

Had 72 degrees in Anchorage/Fairbanks and 40 degrees with rain in Glacier Bay.  Bring two pairs of shoes since they will get wet.

Thanks for the information! I think I'm ready now 🙂
