July and August cruises are popular.
The lowest price rooms and those in optimal locations go first as do the highest price rooms.

We got $197 one way Boston to Vancouver on United. My problem right now is return flights from Anchorage to Boston are extremely high. The good news is that we would fly overnight, saving on a hotel. Right now those flights are $353 per person. JetBlue comes out with their flights in January and the Hopper AP expects prices to drop up to $140 and closer to $200. I hope they're right.Those are really good pricing. Our airport has such high prices. It helps to live near a large airport.
Those are really good pricing. Our airport has such high prices. It helps to live near a large airport.There is no doubt about that. Airports that have competitive routes and where discount airlines control many gates are great. The best thing for us is that I have a parking space in a garage downtown which is a 10 minute subway (The T) to the airport. Saves on airport parking. Still, I'm patient to wait out prices on flights from Anchorage to Boston.
We're booking a cruise for the end of July 2018 (7/24-7/31), inside passage. Is it too cold for a balcony?I guess it depends on your definition of cold. On my trip we experienced all types of weather from cool to down right warm. The weather in that region can vary quite a bit. Best to dress in layers.
We booked our May 2018 cruise in March as soon as they were released. The price has done nothing but go up. We also booked our flights from the East Coast to Anchorage and Vancouver home also have risen every time I check. By booking the cruise back in March we were not affected by the non refundable deposit which is in place now. I would book your cruise as soon as you see a price you can live with and find the cabin you want.I've heard the Alaska ones just go up in price, they don't fall. I think this depends on the line, but with RCI if the price drops after you book you can call and they'll match the current deal. After final payment though, any deals they offer are using 'new bookings only'.
