LAST MINUTE CRUISE TO ALASKA

My hubby and I are wanting to get on a 'last minute cruise' from Vancouver to Alaska return and are wondering if anyone has tried the internet specials (i.e. 75% off, etc) and whether we could trust them. We are in a position where we could leave any time so we think we could find something at the last minute except we're wondering if these companies are honest? Any experience with this? Thanks a lot.

If you are referring to Vactionstogo website, I had the same concern - but bought a cruise from them. They actually are an on-line travel agent and if you pay with a credit card there is obviously little risk - other than you don't get the cruise. I contacted the cruiseline after making the purchase just to make sure they had me listed in a cabin - and that they had received payment.

We're going on a vacations to go cruise in a month, booked last week after reading many positive review about them over the years. They were informative and very helpful.

I use several different methods for booking cruises, directly, travel agents,and VTG.com, and have never had a problem with any of them. And yes, VTG.com has some fantastic deals if you are able to go last minute/or anytime as I am.
I am also lucky that having retired from a travel carrier, I also find some great interline discounts as well.
I also believe in travel insurance, not the per trip kind, but the multi-trip or yearly type. If you travel often as I do, it is not only a valuable asset (yes I have used it) but it comes out to be just a few dollars per trip that way.

On Vancouver TV this morning they had the travel specialist on with the latest bargains. There were some excellent deals on Princess. There is one that is a back to back - 14 night
starting from $699 plus $250 in taxes with various departure dates. http://www.travelbestbets.com/cruises/alaska-cruises/
Scroll down on the page and you will see this one but there are quite a few good deals.
