2012 Alaska- Book Early and Save
Now is a great time to book your cruise to Alaska in 2012. I’ve been watching pricing and have seen some unusually low rates for booking early for Alaska. If you have been thinking about booking a cruise to Alaska in 2012, I would advise you plan early and book now, locking in what I think will be the best rates. And if you’d like to really experience what Alaska has to offer, I strongly recommend a Cruise Tour combo. This combines the cruise with rail and/or luxury motor coach transit, along with wonderful lodging as you explore that part of Alaska’s interior and wildlife you just can’t see from the coastal ports. CruiseTours can’t be booked online but we can make it all happen.
In the meantime, I like to pick out what I think are some of the best deals out here–most of which can be combined with a pre- or post-tour check out all of my handpicked Alaska deals here.
