Cruise berth space needs to booked directly with Princess Cruises as follows. Book any berth or berths you wish.  All will work equally well with the joint activities that Paul envisions.

The WINGS deposit for this cruise is $50 (non-refundable). The cruise will be invoiced approximately 14 weeks before departure.  Final payments become non-refundable 12 weeks prior to departure. Payment dates as well as terms and conditions will be outlined with the acknowledgement of your deposit.


1.  This cruise can often be cancelled without penalty quite close to the departure date.  Check with the relevant cruise company for specific details but if you’re potentially interested, it might make sense to book your berth early and then cancel if it doesn’t work out.

2.  The Alaska cruises are limited to nine birders due to space restrictions at some viewing areas. There is no limit to the number of non-birders who accompany birders. Note that a WINGS deposit or payment is not required of non-birding companions who should not expect to join the daytime birding activities.  Non-birding companions must of course book their cruise berth with the cruise company.
