Many sailings get an earlier start to the season. The extended season grants guests a better chance at booking availability, diverse wildlife and more excursion options.

For travelers looking to go a bit off season for a budget price, this bumped-up schedule allows greater savings with specials including up to $400 off per couple onboard select April and May cruises with the Wilderness & Safari small-ship fleet — when booked by Dec. 15, 2017. Also, expect select explorations of Alaska through Coastal Wilderness tours to offer free airfare for sailings in May, when booked by Dec. 30, 2017, and special prices for travelers booking from Seattle to Alaska. Book an excursion with deals on select May and June land-based trips on the Kenai Peninsula and Denali National Park, offering up to $650 off per person.
