Hi Dusty,
WE cruised in Alaska first week in September this year and there were hardly any kids onboard. I think most are back to school by then.

Default Alaska

I cruised in June on Carnival Spirit and there weren't that many children. The few there were made their fun by using the phones near the elevators to call us claiming they were room service--hehe--but other than that it was fine. Alaska seems to draw a more upscale crowd and less children.

Default Kids

We went Sept. 8 & there weren't many kids at all. A good time to go, in my opinion.

Very few kids are on Alaska cruises compared to the Caribbean. However going mid Sept will have very few, but you are not going at an ideal time- more cold weather, rain, and short daylight- plan on dusk at 7pm. Be sure to get this sailing at a bargain. I make my second yearly trip mid Sept (going on a cheap last minute sale) and there is no comparism to the experience earlier.
