    Unless the weather takes a turn for the worse, I don't think you'll be cold in the forecastle. I slept far away from the fan, but near the door between the forecastle and the blubber room, so I had enough airflow without getting cold. They have nice wool blankets, mattresses and pillows in the bunks, so at most all you really need is a sheet and pillowcase. I brought a sleeping bag, which I didn't get in all the way, but I did like having the extra padding. Don't pack too much, because all the storage space you have is your bunk, with a small amount of space under the bunks.

    I have a question along those same lines.   For those of you who have already sailed, any advice for those of us whose trip is coming up to make the journey more comfortable/enjoyable? I actually have the opposite concern; I am always cold so I fear being chilled at night.  This there anything you did not bring that you wish you had or vice verse?  Is there something you did on your trip you wish you could do again or would recommend to others?  Was there anything you regretted? Thank you!
