Cruise season in Alaska runs from mid-May to mid-September—but within that time frame, is one time better than another to book your cruise? For a lot of cruisers, mid-June through mid-July is the peak season, because of optimum weather and daylight. Spotting wildlife is always unpredictable in Alaska, but your best bet of getting pics of wildlife ashore is probably late May and early June, when mothers and their calves or cubs tend to be out and about. One exception: If you want to do a bear-watching shore excursion, prime bear season is not until late June or early July. Denali: If you want to do a land tour that includes the national park, don’t come during the May shoulder season—the park doesn’t open up until early June.
