Our prices are discounted below the cruise lines’ lowest rates, so you will find the best Alaska cruise discounts for military and Veterans here!
Who qualifies for our Veteran and Military cruise discounts on cruises to Alaska?
Our cruise discounts apply to all active, retired and honorably discharged military personnel / Veterans – AND their friends and family traveling with them!
Do the cruise lines offer Alaska Cruise Discounts for Military and Veterans?
Sometimes. The cruise lines all have different rules on who qualifies for their military rate or benefit.
In general, the cruise lines will only allow the military discount to be applied to the cabin which contains the member of the military or to just the military member themselves.
Spouses/dependents do not qualify for Alaska cruise discounts for military and Veterans from the cruise lines unless their military partner is in the cabin, deceased or deployed.
However – all spouses, dependents, family and friends DO QUALIFY for the military discount from Military Cruise Deals!
Here’s an example of how our military discount and the cruise line’s combine to give military and Veterans the best possible deal:
Princess offers an onboard credit for every military member as their military benefit. But only for the military member themselves, not dependents.
If you book with us, you’ll get that onboard credit, plus our military discount applied to everyone in your entire cabin and group, and a military discount on travel insurance as well.

What is there to do in each Alaskan Cruise Port? We’ll tell ya!
Most Alaska cruises go here! There’s so much to do that is easy to get to. This is the capital of Alaska, sitting at the base of Mt. Roberts, and it is where cruisers can see Mendenhall Glacier. The cruise ships will be parked right at the base of Mt. Roberts, so it is walking distance to the Tram that will take you to the top- where you’ll have this great view and can have lunch!
You’ll definitely want to do that! It’s just $33 per adult and $16 per kid.
You’ll also want to take the Glacier Express Blue bus (only $10 per person) to to the Mendenhall Glacier visitors center, from where you can take a short hike on a flat path to the glacier.
Your cruise ship will pull up right next to this adorable little town, so you can just walk off the boat, no tendering necessary.
This is a great place to go shopping, hiking, or see a fun Lumberjack show that’s only one block from your cruise ship.
This is the perfect town to just walk around. Make sure you go to Dolly’s house – this little building used to where ladies of the night practiced the world’s oldest profession. It is still known as Alaska’s best little house of ill repute and remains standing just as it was when Dolly lived and worked there.
This is another tiny little town with a ton to do. Hiking, wildlife viewing, great dining, fishing – it’s all here. Get up close to eagles, owls and many more large Alaskan birds at the Raptor Center.
For a donation of any size, visit the Fortress of the Bear and get 10 feet from this playful bear! The bears love to just roll around, right in front of you.
Most travelers arrive here by cruise ship and follow part of the original Gold Rush route by tourist train! It is a totally walkable and historic town that has been largely restored to its roots, complete with false-fronted buildings and wooden sidewalks.
The best way to see Skagway is through a historical sightseeing tour. We also recommend a visit to the Davidson Glacier, Klondike Gold Rush National Historic Park, or the Lower Reid Falls.
Pictured above are photos taken from a tour of the Davidson Glacier. My parents did this and said it was AH-mazing … but my mom didn’t charge her camera and has the worst flip phone camera ever so she has zero compelling photos to share. It is expensive but they recommended splurging on this and said you really don’t go to Alaska on a budget.
This charming port is bustling with lush gardens and greenery. It is lauded as one of the most walkable cities in Canada!
You can just about walk from your cruise terminal to the main downtown area. You basically follow everyone else there and back, you can’t get lost. And it’s extremely safe. Walking trails lead right from the city center to Dallas Road, what locals call the scenic drive, along the Pacific Ocean and around the southern coast of the city.
Vancouver Island is renowned as a world-class scuba-diving destination, where you can get in the water with seals and sea lions on a regular basis. But, for people who prefer to keep their feet dry, there are all kinds of boat excursions, from kayaking and glass-bottom-boat tours, to get you up close and personal with the amazing marine life.
This is something for everyone in Victoria!
