Alaska Demand High, Book Early for 2007

Princess Cruises is deploying a record five ships to accommodate demand for its Gulf of Alaska route in 2007. The Pacific Princess will be joining the gulf fleet, providing yet another option for travelers who will have the choice of ships that can hold from 670 to 2,670 passengers. Cruisers will have a total of 85 Gulf of Alaska departures on two different seven-day itineraries from which to choose. The Diamond Princess, Sapphire Princess, Coral Princess and Island Princess cruise ships will return for "Voyage of the Glaciers" cruises between Vancouver and Whittier, while the Pacific Princess will set sail on alternating seven-night northbound and southbound itineraries, featuring new mid-week departures.

Celebrity is assigning three ships to Alaska next year. Starting next May, the Celebrity Infinity will sail roundtrip, seven-night Hubbard Glacier cruises from Vancouver, while the Celebrity Mercury will sail on seven-night Hubbard Glacier cruises that also visit Juneau, Skagway and Ketchikan, Alaska. The Celebrity Summit, meanwhile, will sail alternating seven-night northbound/southbound Alaska cruises. The southern route departs from Seward, Alaska.

There are still some good deals on Alaska options remaining for this year (especially in August), it's a good idea to start thinking ahead if you want to have your choice of sailings and cabins for next summer.
