CRUISE To Alaska: BEST Time To Go

Alaska is an ideal vacation destination for retirees, families and couples.

More than half of the visitors to Alaska come by cruise ship.

Cruise ships can reach wildlife areas, glaciers, fjords, and coastal towns that would be hard to reach otherwise.

So when is the best time to go on a cruise to Alaska?

The best time to visit is during the summer from May 10 to September 15.

During this time, there are 16-24 hours of daylight.

Temperatures are in the 60s to 70s with blooming flowers and optimal wildlife viewing.

However, choose to go early or late in the season for lower prices and fewer crowds.

The best time to see the aurora borealis in Alaska is from August 21 to April 21, also known as the Aurora Season.

Some cruise passengers have seen the northern lights in the late summer.
