Cruising in Alaska

Alaska cruising season generally runs from May through September, although some smaller ships start going out in April.

Nonetheless, May and September are considered the best seasons, plus you can get lower brochure rates and the greatest discounts during these months.

I particularly like going on my Alaska cruise in May, before the crowds arrive.

I have noticed that the locals are generally 'friendlier' during that time, because later during the season they are more than ready to see the tourist go home.

However, it is also a fact that in the Inside Passage ports, May is one of the driest months in the season. But later on, in September, is best to have less clogging of ports and better visualisation during the cruise.

You will find that the warmest months are June, July, and August, with temperatures generally around 50�F to 80�F (10�C-27�C) during the day and cooler at night. During these months you will need to bring along some outerwear.

June 21st is the longest day of the year, with daylight lasting virtually all night.

June tends to be drier than July and August.

In April you may encounter freezing rain and other vestiges of winter. If you are considering travelling before the Alaska cruise season (before May), keep in mind that some tourist shops don't open until Memorial Day (last Monday of May).

Your Alaska cruise is an experience you will never forget. Planning it out well and getting the best prices is a must to enjoy your Alaska cruise to the fullest.
