Calling all adventure travelers: Priceline is offering some big discounts on 200 Alaskan cruises for 2019, with sailings starting at $449 per person for four- to seven-day routes. That’s $449 to cruise the Inside Passage, swing by glaciers and fjords, and spot all the wildlife. Yes please. It’s all part of the Alaska Cruise Month offer, which highlights deals from major lines like Celebrity, Holland America, Princess, and Norwegian, and helps you save up to 75 percent when you book (think up to $1,000 of onboard credit and up to an additional $200 in shore excursion credit). Travel is available from April through September 2019—the best time to cruise in Alaska, as previously reported by Traveler—and you have the rest of October to book. Here are a few of the best offers we found:
Princess has a seven-night “Voyage of the Glaciers” cruise out of Vancouver on the Golden Princess that hits Ketchikan, Juneau, Skagway, Glacier Bay National Park, College Fjord, and Whittier, Alaska—prices for an interior room start at $579 per person. You have the option to book any month from May to September 2019. Find more information here.
Holland America’s northbound Glacier Discovery cruise spans seven nights on the Noordam and hits everywhere from Juneau to Glacier Bay National Park—prices start at $599 total for an interior room.
