One-week sale on Alaska cruises from Regent

You can combine Alaskan adventure with luxury on Regent Seven Seas this summer if you travel aboard the line's spacious Seven Seas Mariner for one of three late spring cruises to the 50th state. The line is offering two-for-one savings if you book by this Sunday, March 25, at rates starting at $2,848 for a balcony suite (the 700-passenger Seven Seas Mariner is the world's first all-suite, all-balcony ship).

Departures for week-long voyages are May 23, May 30, and June 6 and travel either from Vancouver, BC, to Seward, Alaska, or vice versa. Fares include all onboard tipping, complimentary selected wines and spirits, and other drinks.

The downsides are that you can't combine this offer with free air or kids sail free deals, so, depending on how you plan to get there and who you plan to travel with, you'll need to assess whether this is the best deal you can get.

Still, for a luxury line in a relatively expensive destination, this is a nice offer. And as a bonus, the weather in Alaska is often quite good in late May and early June.
