I hope the flight arrives on time, for the couple cruises I took I flew the night before and stayed at a hotel, just to be on the safeside.

It was my fathers dream to go on an Alaska cruise and he finally did it. And hated every minute of it.

The boat will wait for nobody. And if there's a fuel shortage, it may even leave ahead of schedule, as happened to us. :) Under no circumstances would I feel safe taking a flight (esp. if it's from NYC) that's due to arrive so close to the boat's departure. Even if you make the ship, what happens if your luggage doesn't come until the next flight?

I recommend flying in the night before. Not worth risk of flight delays. Cruise will leave without you and money paid is non refundable.

AH. In that case get travel insurance that would reimburse you.
