Hi planning this cruise with family of 4. Any suggestion is welcome on timing and best cruise option is welcome. Should we do around trip back to Vancouver or do a one way trip to Whittier/Seward?

This link opens to a comprehensive article dealing with choosing a cruise.

If you have any cruise questions, the Alaska Forum is the place to ask them. Vancouver is but a terminus for the ship. But if you think you would like to stay a few days before or after, then this forum is for Vancouver stay questions.

I think May is on the early side for Alaska unless you are thinking of the last week of May. June-September would very likely offer a better experience.

hi

the one way cruise from Vancouver to Alaska with wanting to fly back to Vancouver is not the easiest as there are very few flights that go to YVR - Vancouver. Air Alaska serves Alaska with all their flights going to Seattle, so unless you onward journey is to the US a one way to Alaska is not a flexible idea.
