Your Alaska Cruise Questions Answered

You’ve got Alaska cruise questions, we’ve got answers!

Today, we’re answering your Alaska cruise questions. Everything from the year long ban to alternative options for visiting the 49th state. Why are we talking about Alaska when we may not be able to cruise there this year? Well, the simple answer is that there is still plenty of interest in cruising Alaska. Alaska cruises are SO popular and a great way to explore the 49th state. You can expect dramatic scenery, glaciers, wildlife wide open space.

Yes, there is currently a ban in place, so let’s talk about that for a moment. The Canadian government extended a ban on cruise ships until at least 2022 just weeks before its initial restrictions were set to expire. This ban, which has been extended until Feb. 28, 2022, applies to all cruise vessels carrying more than 100 people. It was first implemented in March 2020 and was set to expire Feb. 28, 2021. We aren’t sure what will happen with the ban. Perhaps cruise lines will find a solution before the year end, but that all remains to be seen.

    This awesome 5 STAR team creates the best format for information, listening ease, and a positive atmosphere. I learn so much that I am immediately able to use. I find myself revisiting topics as needed, which really enhances my cruise planning. My husband is surprised and pleased with my newfound efficient packing skills! I feel prepared and energized by the pre-cruise experience. Most of all, Sheri, Mr. CruiseTipsTV and Junior are down to earth, inspiring, warm and funny. Thank you so much for sharing yourselves and your experiences with us!

    Really enjoy your content as it covers more than one brand! We especially find information on Alaska cruises helpful as we are doing Alaska this summer on Ruby Princess in an aft facing suite! Would love to get more content on Celebrity cruises as we tend to cruise more on Royal and Celebrity. We really don’t like Carnival.
