Alaska cruises and tours are the ideal way to experience the legendary history of the 49th state. The historic charm and frontier spirit are felt in the Inside Passage and in picturesque ports of call, such as Ketchikan, Skagway, Juneau and Sitka. Alaska is also renowned for its magnificent wildlife, whale migrations, exceptional scenery, dramatic glaciers, and iconic natural wonders, such as Mount McKinley and Denali National Park. With departures and arrivals available from San Francisco, Seattle or Vancouver, you’re sure to find an adventure that suits you.
Why Cruise Alaska?
Into the Wild
On an Alaskan cruise, you can participate in thrilling or educational shore excursions at every port of call. Many cruise lines also offer cruise-tours—two or three-day adventures into the wild before or after your cruise. These tours can involve stays at unique wilderness lodges, rides in glass-domed railcars and visits to land-locked Denali National Park, home to mighty Mt. McKinley.
What a View
It’s easy to witness the sublime beauty of the Last Frontier from a cruise ship. The deck and your private verandah give you unfettered views to breaching whales and towering glaciers, which you simply cannot access by car.
The ports on an Alaskan cruise are some of the most colorful and historic places you can experience in America. Towns like Ketchikan, Sitka and Skagway tell remarkable stories about the gold rush days, Russia’s influence and native culture.
