I've cruised to Alaska 4 times now...last time being in May....We prefer sailing in May because the scenery is what you expect in Alaska...SNOW....the mountains are still covered with it....I live in Minnesota and I HATE Snow, but in Alaska, it's wonderful...We've sail on NCL and Carnival.....NCL Pearl is our favorite....round trip from Seattle.....Carnival was out of Vancouver to Whittier and a bus ride to Anchorage....
All of these have been 7 day land travel...We have become Holland America lovers and would suggest looking at their cruises....Make sure you do the White Pass Railroad in Skagway....It does rain a lot and really doesn't make much difference what time of the year you sail.....Wear layed clothing, bring a nice rain poncho....Some love a balcony, but most of the time it's raining, cold and we've stayed with an Ocean View and spend lots of time on deck.....of our 26 and soon to be 27 cruises, Alaska is our favorite.....Have a smashing good time...
