Q. What is the best time of year to cruise; as far as weather and daylight hours go? -Cherry
A. I would personally opt for June or July. June is our lightest month. Actually it never gets truly dark; just a sort of twilight between just before midnight and til about 3:30 when the sun is back up! I love that time of year! By end of May we have leaves on our trees. June thru August you will see overflowing flowering baskets and flower beds everywhere. Alaskans are famous for getting flowers out as quickly as they can; I think because of our color deprivation during the long winter. I said I would opt for June or July….but cruising season is considered to be anytime beween May and into September I believe. You’re in for a treat, Cherry.
