THE DEAL: American Discount Cruises and Travel is offering a seven-night Alaska cruise onboard Coral Princess, sailing from Vancouver to Whittier on August 28, 2013. Prices start from $499 per person for an inside cabin, and include either prepaid gratuities or onboard credit at booking.
WHAT WE LOVE: It’s nearing the end of high season in Alaska, so jump on this deal that will showcase the state’s major sites and cities from just $71 per person, per night. Coral Princess has a touch of glitz, but offers down-to-earth lectures and workshops as part of their ScholarShip @ Sea program. If you find a free moment, go out on deck and look around: this sailing offers plenty of scenic cruising, including the grand College Fjord. American Discount Cruises and Travel offers your choice of bonuses at booking, depending on cabin and sailing.
WHAT GIVES US PAUSE: This is a last-minute deal, sailing in just under three weeks. If you have the time and you have the extra cash, you will also need to make sure you have a passport, as this cruise departs from Canada.
