There is no feeling more spectacular than sitting on your private verandah and looking out onto the pristine ocean, awesome glaciers and the natural wildlife that defines the wonder that is Alaska.
There is no doubt in 2006 Alaska was a hot spot among travelers. The call of the wild was strong and people were flocking to be a part of some of mother natures most beautiful and magnificent creations. Cruises were selling out two to three months prior to the season starting in May and you couldn't find a good discount anywhere.
However we've seen an interesting turn of events for 2007. The Alaska cruise season is well underway and there is still space available, plus we are experiencing some record low prices. With close-in 7 day Alaska cruises starting as low as $399 you can't afford to stay home. That's less than $60 a day for accommodations, food and entertainment. The value doesn't get hotter than this!
So now that you are sold on an Alaska cruise you ask, "But my cruise departs from Canada and I haven't received my passport yet?" Well we've got news for you. Due to the unusually long wait for processing, you will be excited to know that the US Department of State has just made an announcement that US citizens traveling to Canada who have applied for, but not yet received, their passport can temporarily enter and depart from the US by air with a government issued photo ID and the Department of State official proof of application for a passport through September 30, 2007.
So there is no excuse, your Passport dilemma is solved and your price quandary is definitely solved. Don't miss the boat on this impeccable pricing.
