As of today, June 15 2009, most of the Princess Alaska CruiseTours are either sold out or very close to sold out. 2009 Alaska prices have been and continue to be ridiculously low. Due to this fact, several cruise ships will not return back to Alaska in 2010. This will reduce the amount of cruise inventory in Alaska in 2010 and it should cause the rates to increase.
I truly believe that 2009 will be the best year ever to cruise to Alaska. I am also a proponent of the 7-night Cruise + Land Tour Package when visiting Alaska. I have had many clients who returned from a 7-night Alaska cruise wishing that they had added on a 4-night land package. The Land Packages get you up to Fairbanks, Denali, Mt. McKinley, Anchorage, etc.
Although the availability is low for the Alaska Cruise Tour packages, Princess has normally sold them out by this time each year. So I was able to find some awesome deals including a 7-night cruise departing Vancouver on Sept. 7th with a 4 night land package staying at Princess Lodges in Denali, Mt. Mckinley, Anchorage and Fairbanks. Rates for this 11-night package are starting at only $1229 per person!
