Traveling Single and Single Cabin Supplement Fees
If you are a single traveler willing to share a cabin and Anchorage accommodations, and we are unable to match you with a roommate of the same gender, you will not be charged a single supplement. If you want to guarantee a private cabin and Anchorage accommodations, a 60% single supplement charge will apply (not commissionable to travel agents). We will be happy to add separate Anchorage accommodations at request to your trip package at cost.
The initial booking deposit is non refundable. Cancellations received from guests or their agents after January 1st will be subject to a cancellation fee of 50% of the total ticket price. Cancellations received ninety days to the day of departure are not refundable and will be charged 100% of ticket price.
