Discover the last frontier

Why a cruise to Alaska?


Are you searching for that ultimate cruise to Alaska? You have arrived come to the correct site. With several online sites to choose from you are easily going to discover your vacation to Alaska here.


The demand to see one of the world's last pristine frontiers continues to grow with every year. What better way to experience Alaska than with a much deserved cruise. You will enjoy Alaska with its snow-capped mountains, mighty rivers, ancient glaciers and steep fjords. You will be amazed with wildlife such as the orca, black bears, the grand bald eagle, seals and the ever playful otter. You will see historic gold rush towns, quaint fishing villages, enjoy plenty of outdoor activities and immerse yourself in Alaska's unique culture.

Alaska cruises are usually divided into three types. Gulf of Alaska, Inside Passage and small ship expedition-type cruises are the main-stay of experiencing Alaska by ship. ...continued



The Inside Passage is the more traditional method to cruise to Alaska, with most of the ships sailing round-trip from Seattle or Vancouver through glacier territory as far north as Juneau and / or Skagway. Gulf of Alaska cruises tend to cover a larger area as they travel through the Inside Passage from Vancouver up to Seward / Anchorage (and the reverse). Small expedition-type cruises explore remote waterways and  isolated ports that are inaccessible to the larger ships, and enable you to have a more intimate look at glaciers and wildlife.


The Alaska cruise season starts in May and goes all the way through into September. Your cruise will last most often anywhere from seven to 12 days. Some cruise companies will offer a combination of a cruise to Alaska plus a land tour. On the land portion of your cruise / tour, you will travel over land by train or motor-coach visiting scenic vistas like Banff National Park, the Canadian Rockies or maybe even the Yukon.


So... there you have it. You will need to take a cruise to Alaska while it is still one of the last majestic frontiers to explore.
