THE DEAL: AlaskaCruises.com is offering a 15-night Alaska cruise onboard Norwegian Sun, sailing roundtrip from Vancouver on August 26, 2013. Prices start from $999, per person, for an inside cabin.
WHAT WE LOVE: Cruising to Alaska has proven a wallet-friendly affair this season, and with $1,500 in savings, this sailing is no different. With three months to plan, your Norwegian cruise isn’t last-minute, but from $67 per person, per night, these fares resemble last-minute pricing. Complimentary transfers and a hotel stay to relax in Vancouver before boarding add to this already-enticing Alaska cruise vacation.
WHAT GIVES US PAUSE: Longer than your typical seven-night sailing, 16 days may be too much to take off for an average work schedule or home life. If you’re lucky enough to get the time away, you may want to splurge on a balcony, but the price isn’t as friendly — it’s an additional $93 per night as compared with an inside cabin.
