We've done 2 Alaska cruises on Princess, had a ball, fantastic cruise line and trip. Google 'Princess Cruise Lines' for information.

They normally run May through September. You need to book early in order to get the best price and best selection on room. Best to book a year in advance.

There are many excellent deals on last minute cancellations. You can save big $$ by being on their cancellation list. Otherwise as above said, book a year in advance before the next season price increase.

I went on holland american line like two weeks ago. I was on the oosterdam ship. Seemed like mostly old people on the ship though lol. I'd go on a ship more family oriented like disney cruise or something like that.

I just got back from a Northbound cruise on Carnival Spirit from Vancouver to Whittier with stops at Ketchikan, Juneau, Skagway & Sitka. I had a great time with the exception of the dining room food being inedible. Our cruise was made up of a mix of age groups, but primarily seniors.

Don't take a cruise, that is just a small part of Alaska. Fly up and base a few weeks out of Anchorage or Fairbanks and rent a RV or a car and drive around the whole road system. Ask Barkingowl, the drives are worth the money!

I suggest you do your own research. Personally, I loved Princess cruise and had a wonderful time with my hubby and my Mom. We went the end of August. Chilly but I loved it. If you have specific cruising questions, feel free to DM me and I would be more than happy to share my experience and answer any questions you may have.

My only advice is you should pick the "one way" cruises instead of round-trip. And depending on which direction you are heading, remember to pick a room facing the land. You get better views. Have fun!
