Is May too early for an Alaskan Cruise?

by jkxr »

The prices look good and my work schedule gets very busy in June, July and August. But will it be too chilly and will everything be open? Would love to hear some advise.

You never really know what will happen with the weather in Alaska, especially nowadways. May actually used to be one of the least rainy months in AK, so ideal for cruising (I believe it has, however, been rainy for the past few years). That being said, everything should be open and the folks there won't be tired of tourists yet, so it's a great time to go. Fares on cruises should be lower, too. And yes, everything you want to see will be open at that point. Have a great trip.

We are flexible between the end of July and the beginning of September, planning on touring in and from Anchorage for 7 days.

So you're going to do a road trip then? The Kenai Peninsula is TERRIFIC for that. You will, however, want to get advance reservations as it does fill up.
