May - the weather's great! September was also good, but it did rain a little more.

I've heard (not experienced) September to be the best time to cruise. Less crowds and better prices. Hope that helps!

We've cruised to Alaska in September three times and love it for the following reasons:
It's a little dryer so less mosquitos
The salmon are running
If you do any traveling into Alaska (Denali, Fairbanks, even driving around Anchorage) you will likely see the fall colors in mid September.
You are more likely to see the Great One (Mt McKinley)
Cruise prices are lower
Crowds tend to be less
Kids are in school
Days are warmer
Possibility of seeing aurora
Less chance of a problem getting into Tracy Arm, Hubbard Glacier, Glacier Bay

I just returned from my 8th trip to Alaska and I have been there from May to October. I will say that September is the best time to go, especially if it is the last sailing for the ship. The people are happy the season is over and everything is on sale, if you love to shop. You will enjoy Alaska and Princess is the way to go. (Out of San Francisco is my favorite way.)
