There are two parts to the answer to this question: cruise line requirements and requirements to enter Canada (the cruise departs from Vancouver, B.C., Canada).
Currently, Royal Caribbean Cruises requires proof of Covid-19 vaccination, however some cruise lines are already starting to relax these requirements and we hope that Royal Caribbean will follow suit.
Similarly, Canadian laws are subject to change, but this is a good starting point for current requirements: Entering Canada if not qualified as fully vaccinated for COVID-19
Our best suggestion is to hedge your bet against missing out by making a fully refundable deposit ($500) now and select your cabin. Then, if the cruise line or Canadian requirements do not fit your situation by the final payment date, you may request a refund and we will promptly grant it, per our promise.

"We lived in Alaska twice. There's no place on earth like it. Seeing Alaska with Paul Young will truly be a once-in-a lifetime experience. If you have the time and means, opt for the cruise + land option to Denali National Park and catch a glimpse of Alaska's Big 5 (grizzly bear, wolf, moose, Dall Sheep and caribou). Denali is the third-tallest of the “Seven Summits” (the tallest peak on each continent), after Mount Everest in Asia and Mount Aconcagua in South America. Denali is actually the tallest mountain on land – even taller than Everest – if you measure it from the base to the summit."
