Big, beautiful, and breathtaking. Alaska is a destination unlike any other – and cruising is one of the best ways to experience it.The allure of adventure merges seamlessly with the comfort of a hotel stay on an Alaska cruise. You can see miles and miles of untouched wilderness and take in the awesome beauty of the Alaskan coast, all without ever leaving your ship. Or sail right up into the heart of mystical glaciers and stunning fjords and see the most beautiful features of Alaska’s geography. Top destinations like the Hubbard Glacier, Icy Straight Point, and Glacier Bay await.
On land, you can visit charming fishing villages like Ketchikan and Seward, learn about the culture and traditions of the native Tlingit people, or set out into the wilderness in search of bald eagles, wolves, moose, and bears. Combine your Alaska cruise with a land tour to visit Denali National Park and Reserve. Your Alaskan cruise adventure can be as adventurous or as comfortable as you like!
The Alaska cruise season runs from May to September, with the most ships sailing between June and August. The weather is warmest in June, July, and August, so if you plan on hiking or doing lots of shore excursions, this is the best time to go. In late April and May as well as September you’ll find some of the best cruise deals as you can take advantage of off-peak rates. Here, the crowds will be thinner and the ports less full, but you run into more of a chance of having snow on the ground, which may impact some of your land tours or shore excursions. Seas also tend to get a bit choppy in September, particularly if you’re cruising the Gulf of Alaska (as opposed to the Inside Passage, which is more protected), so keep that in mind if you’re prone to motion sickness. But cruising in the off-season has its advantages, too: Late summer is the best time for viewing wildlife, and September is the best time to see the Northern Lights.
Princess Cruises was the first cruise line to popularize Alaska cruises, and today, nearly every major cruise line sails there. Top cruise lines for Alaska cruises include Holland America Line, Norwegian Cruise Line, Royal Caribbean, and Celebrity Cruises.
Alaska is also a great destination for an expedition cruise. Untouched forests, icy blue lakes, hidden waterfalls, and glacial valleys await for those who dare explore.
