Cruisers who aren’t after hot weather or calypso bands can find some great cruise deals by sailing to Alaska off peak, often referred to as Alaska’s shoulder season. The off peak season begins in May through to early June and restarts again in September.
Peak season Alaska cruises can be more expensive than Caribbean cruises as there are fewer cruise companies sailing, however if you’re after bargain cruise deals Royal Caribbean Cruises have some very tempting deals which provide passengers with the a look at Alaska’s great wilderness and natural beauty. With less than two months until the off-peak season begins the deals are gradually rolling out, but you should also remember that many of the deals being offered mean you have to sail within sixty or ninety days.
Last minute bargains abound and whilst you may not get the stateroom you want, regular cruisers will know that they can still expect the same superb service and facilities they’ve always enjoyed, just at a lower price.
Shop around and keep you eye out for the latest cruise deals and you may find you can enjoy offers such as two-for-one, or reductions on future off-season cruises.
