roquejo Posted August 3, 2013 #1 Share Posted August 3, 2013 Our 14 day Alaska cruise late 2014 has been cancelled and we are given 3 alternative dates with the same price I booked.. May 26, 2104 June 9, 2014 June 23, 2104 Price wise, June 23 is the most expensive so best for the buck but I know there are other factors which makes this very complicated, this is a 2 week cruise so it is half a month, so each sailing date corresponds to a different time of the season in a place where weather impacts much. May 26 is the driest and still not summer yet, with still some ice, and still off peak. June 9 is early summer, nearing peak season, while June 23 will be summer already with lots of daylight, and super peak season already. This is my 2nd Alaska cruise but I went last Sept 2012 so it was already the shoulder season so I haven't experienced an Alaska summer yet. I know the best time to go is subjective as it depends on what you want, normally for me the price is the most deciding factor, but since the price factor is now constant for the 3 sailing dates, this makes choosing difficult for me So this is where I need help from the seasoned Alaska visitors out there.. given there are many subjective issues in choosing which date to go, each period has its pros and cons.. so in adding all those, which among the 3 sailing dates is the best one?
