Alaska boasts thousands of kilometres of scenic coastline, towering mountains, blue ice of massive glacial fields, fjords, huge expanses of rainforest and Arctic tundra, whales, eagles, bears, moose, seals and seabirds.
Alaska would take years to explore so why not see it all in comfort and convenience? Marvel at the splendour of the Alaskan wilderness on an Alaska cruise. See the stunning scenery, glaciers, panoramic views and wildlife from the comfort and convenience of a floating all-inclusive hotel. Witness dramatic displays of ice-shelves breaking off into icebergs, visit cultures that have lived on the land for thousands of years, be awed by humpback whales and gaze upon the miracle of the Aurora Borealis. All this from your opulent stateroom or while dining on gourmet meals in the five-star restaurants.
The countless waterways and natural beauty make Alaska a natural draw for cruise ships. Alaska cruises are not just about the beauty of nature’s icy glaciers, but also about the Alaska shore excursions in the rugged outdoors; great opportunities take in a hike, tour or kayak trip to see more of the wilderness. Many cruise lines also offer shore tours at either the start or end your cruise vacation through inland areas of Alaska.
Whether you’re looking for a family friendly cruise, 5 star luxury cruise or a holiday aboard a smaller expedition ship, which will get cruisers closer to the wildlife action and scenery, there are a variety of cruise lines and Alaskan cruise routes to choose from. You may even opt for a cruise-tour which gives you the chance to get off the boat and travel on a tour bus for about half of your trip.
