- Book your cruise early because certain types of staterooms can sell out.
- Purchase travel insurance that will adequately cover you because Alaska can be an expensive vacation and if something happens you probably don't want to lose all of your vacation money.
- Always be on the lookout for price drops and try to get your cruise line to honor the lower price!
- Keep in mind Alaska can be a once in a lifetime opportunity for many and it is okay to splurge a little to make the most of this vacation. It is worth it to have a room with a view if you plan on looking outside at the scenery. If not, I would recommended just booking an interior. If you do book an interior, remember to use the outside public decks to get a look outside!
