I would do this in a heartbeat if we could take our very elderly dog.

Sounds like a great deal since everyone says that the Alaska cruise is the one where you MUST have a balcony cabin and those are pricey.

It's late enough in the season that there may be some possibility of the lights being out, but will largely depend on light pollution from the ship itself. It would need to be quite dark around you to be able to see them that well.

Put the dog down and go to Alaska to spread the ashes in a glacier... it's all he/she ever wanted and you know it...

Shouldn't the prices be cheaper? September is end of the season.

Good deal if it's like $599/pp plus taxes for a balcony! Usually inside is $799 minimum and balconies are $1399 min. Alaska is short season because of the cold weather - May to Sept. It's pricey when compared to say a 7-night November cruise in the caribbean (seen as low as $249/pp inside). While you may want a balcony, you must understand that the sunrise is around 3-4am and sunset is 10-11pm. This leaves very little dark time for those that like/need the dark to sleep. The only time you're in your room is for sleep, shower, and sex, and poop from eating so much! The rest of the time you're somewhere else on the ship. Alaska cruise ships normally have beautiful viewing louges/decks to see what you want of the beautiful water and mountains.

We are booked on an inside cabin for May 2018 on NCL just because we like the dark inside rooms when we want to sleep. We have been on 9 other cruises and paid for balconies twice. It's expensive real estate and we felt like we were forced to use it because we paid the extra for it. We get up, throw on slippers, and head to the morning buffet for coffee and breakfast and sit out on the deck or by a window to see the sights. We are used to 4 or 5 ports right here in Florida, so for us the added expense of flights to Seattle and limited luggage space add to the expenses. So many things to factor when going on a cruise, but we love cruising and it is the only time I truly unplug from the world and relax.
