Default Flying to/from Alaska

So I was wondering if anyone has made their own arrangements for flying to/and or from Alaska? I tried to do some searches but to no avail! I noticed alot of these cruises are not round trip. So what have you done, where and how, etc??

All my flights are direct booked by me, All 19 trips. Simple,= as mentioned you need to look at a multi city booking feature, which all sites have.

You have to put down Anchorage as the airport. A bus will take you to/from the cruise.

You have to fly to Anchorage. No major airport in Seward.

We got round trip tickets to Seattle, then a one way to Anchorage. Our cruise ends up in Vancouver and we are renting a car and driving back to Seattle for our return flight home. We decided the 3 hour trip would be good sightseeing anyway. We have not been to that part of the US before. Check the prices, but it is usually cheaper to do a round trip than several cities, if you don't mind driving or taking a bus. Good luck.

For clairfication for Seattle/Vancouver you need to ALLOW 4 hours for the drive. The border delays are significant on cruise days. I most always stay in Bellingham then I get a jump on all the Vancouver traffic , always beneficial.


Be also sure to factor in your transfer to/from Seward. It is at least a 3 hour trip. there will be cruise contracted bus and rail, independent rail and one way rental car with Hertz.

Rather than rent a car you might check on transfers through the cruise line for transport to Seatle. Usually about $35 per person. Might be cheaper than a one way car rental and they got us through immigration as a group without any hassel.
