I think your plan is very risky. This is your dream vacation that you have been planning for three years, I would not wait until three weeks prior to try and save some money. Alaska is a limited season. There is no guarantee pricing will follow the same pattern as previous years. You mentioned Celebrity and RCI the second week of June. Those sailings already have wait listed cabin categories on sold out lower categories, and sold out suites and balconies. They may in fact lower prices three weeks prior to sell out the remaining cabins. Most likely it will be a discount on higher priced cabins. In actuality if you had booked in advance, you would have paid a better price for the lower priced cabins.
