(27) Cruising Alaska

Most cruises to Alaska depart from Vancouver, Canada or Seattle, WA and sail the Inside Passage route to ports such as: Juneau, Skagway and Ketchikan. Cruising Alaska treats travelers to some of Mother Nature's finest gifts. There are majestic mountains, calving glaciers and icebergs. There are magnificent whales breaching the icy waters, eagles soaring overhead and black bears roaming the shoreline. Nights are short and days are a constant scenic showcase. Don't forget binoculars!

  • Best Bets: Splurge on a private balcony cabin or opt for a small ship cruise so you won't miss any of action. Book a cruise tour that includes travel by railway through Denali Park.
  • Best Time: Alaska cruises operate from mid-May to late September. Look for best cruise discounts early and late in the season.
