The following are some helpful tips that you can use
while planning or enjoying your Alaska cruise.
The Alaskan cruise season runs from May to September,
with July and August being the most busy months.
If you can book your cruise early, you might save considerable amount
of money on your trip.
Don't forget to pack a sweater or a sweatshirt because it might get cold
in Alaskan region. Also, you should take an umbrella or preferably a raincoat
because rain is not uncommon in that region between May and September.
Unless you're cruising with Norwegian Cruise Line, you should take one formal dress with you to the cruise (for men
this usually means a suite or tuxedo and for women this means a nice
elegant dress). Usually in
many cruise ships there is at least one formal dinner, during which
everyone dresses extremely elegantly. You wouldn't want to look
out of place during that party.
Don't worry about how much you should tip. Most cruise
rooms will contain a tipping guideline that you can use to figure out
what you should tip.
