“Rates have never been better for Alaska cruises this summer. Discounted rates are available for the third and fourth person in a cabin. There are plenty of family-friendly activities on board and excursions are available for most ages and in all price ranges,” says Goldenberg.
According to Goldenberg, who has over a decade of travel-selling experience, cruises can be a surprisingly fun yet frugal option for families. She notes that Alaskan cruises are not highly recommended for toddlers but school-age children and older can be fascinated by the nature and intimate wildlife experiences.
