Alaska cruises: Here's a booking tip

If you've ever dreamt of taking an Alaskan cruise, this might be your year: Prices are way down. We've noticed that you can find rock-bottom prices if you book at the last minute or if you're willing to start and/or end your cruise in Alaska (instead of Seattle or another port in the lower 48 states).

In a recent Kayak search, we found a seven-night cruise out of Seward for $329 per person before taxes (Holland America) departing in June. Of course, you'll have to buy the airfare to get out there, but it's still worth a look. We were also spotting cruises departing in late May out of Vancouver for $349 per person before taxes (Celebrity)—an excellent price.
