Find the Best Cruises in Alaska

Alaska Cruises

An Alaska cruise offers something for everyone, whether you are looking for a relaxing vacation or a fun weekend getaway. Alaska is known for its breathtaking scenery and incredible wildlife and offers travelers a variety of cruise packages including dolphin or whale sighting adventures, romantic getaways, wilderness cruises or family themed voyages.

Vancouver, British Columbia, is a port from which many Alaskan cruises depart. One of the world's finest cities, Vancouver offer passengers a beautiful view of the downtown as they depart on their voyage, where thick pine forests and mountains frame an impressive cluster of skyscrapers.

Alaska cruise vacations can be booked at virtually any time of the year, and one can choose from Southern, Northern or inside passages. If seeing a wide variety of marine life is one's primary goal, a southern Alaskan cruise is the best option. On such a voyage, it is possible to see beluga, orca and blue whales, or the celebrated Humpback whales as they migrate from Hawaii with their young. Almost anywhere whales are found, travelers will also have a high likelihood of seeing dolphins.

Another great option is an Alaskan wilderness package. Cruises in this category typically sail along the edge of the Tongass National Forest between Ketchikan and Juneau and are ideal for the adventurous and families with children. The landscapes and scenery along this route will never be forgotten.

An excursion through the inside passage of the Glacier Bay National Park is another terrific option. This icy strait offers outstanding scenery, including impressive glacier formations. A popular option among couples and honeymooners, such a cruise is ideal for those seeking a romantic-themed adventure. With some lines, additional activities are available when the liner docks, such as exploration by kayak, hiking or skiffs.

When on a cruise from Vancouver, travelers will enjoy stopping in exciting ports of call such as Icy Strait, Skagway, Juneau, Ketchikan, Seward, and Hubbard Glacier. However, there are also itinerary options that include ports located a bit further off the beaten path. This decision is simply a matter of personal preference. However, there are essentially no bad choices when one is selecting an Alaskan cruise. 

Fortunately, it is also not difficult to find a voyage to suit one's budget, as cruises are available throughout the year and travelers can choose from a broad range of lengths, such as five day, ten day or 21 day options. Consumers planning an Alaskan cruise in June or July should book their packages well in advance to avoid missing out on their desired dates. Regardless of the option one selects, an Alaska cruise is an experience to cherish for a lifetime.
