Happy Traveler Comment
Just wanted to follow up and say what a pleasure it was to work with you [Darlene] and Cesar and I am thankful for the patient and prompt responses to several questions I had leading up to the trip. And the trip was awesome! I would also recommend Holland America. We did a cruisetour. The land tour schedule was intense at times, but worth it. I feel like we saw three weeks' worth in one week. And there were never any lines and very little waiting with Holland America having made all arrangements ahead of time. I can't imagine a better trip! Thank you! — Brigette and Bruce W.

In the past, you may have thought that cruising to Alaska was going to break the bank. You should know, however, that this isn’t the case. You can enjoy time aboard a luxury Alaska cruise ship while saving money.

Cruise season to this spectacular state starts May 1st and ends the third week in September. Instead of going to during peak months, such as July or August, we recommend that you consider booking your vacation during what is known as shoulder season, which in this case refers to May and September, if you’re looking to cut costs.

The good thing about spending time in Alaska during the shoulder season is that temperatures are still mild enough for you to enjoy a wide variety of activities like hiking, whale watching and horseback riding around ports of call such as Juneau, Skagway and Ketchikan, but cruise tickets tend to be noticeably more affordable. When you book with us, you’ll find that many of our discounted trips are available at the beginning and end of the season.

Another plus to taking an Alaska cruise during the shoulder season is that towns tend to be less crowded. You’ll spend far less time waiting in line to buy your ticket to the Tongass Historical Museum and Alaska State Museum and there will be more availability when booking excursions.

Of course, as always, our suggestions are only meant to be a guide. If you have any more questions about when to sail to Alaska on a budget, feel free to contact us.
