Default Re: Best time to cruise Alaska

I would cruise sometime between June 15th and September 1st. The weather is "generally" better and a bit warmer. There are more hours of daylight for excursions.
Spring and fall can be nice but can also be very changeable when it comes to weather.
There are more children aboard during this time which may be a plus or minus depending on your point of view.

However fares are usually a bit less in May and September. Those are the main tradeoffs I.M.H.O.
