With a land area of over 570,000 square miles, Alaska is the largest, and arguably the most beautiful State in America. It’s not surprising then that the popularity of Alaska Cruises has risen dramatically in recent times.
Alaska boasts a multitude of national forests, national parks and wildlife refuges and has over 3 million lakes. This magnificent glacial wilderness has a myriad of verdant valleys, fjords and salmon filled rivers, plus a wonderful array of native birds and animals.
There is no better way to see the unspoilt wildness of this untamed land than by cruising through the Inside Passage and the Gulf of Alaska with Alaska cruises. What could possibly surpass combining the luxury and splendour of a cruise with the great outdoors?
The main cruise season for Alaska cruises runs from May to October, with May generally being the driest month. Most cruise ships stop at the largest city, Anchorage. Other ports- of-call are Juneau, the Indian fishing village of Ketchikan and Seward which is a fishing port.
You may never have a better chance to experience the wonder of dolphins and whales swimming in the native habitat or to spot sea otters and wild bears. Visit fjords, glaciers and lakes that have remained virtually unchanged through the ages. The adrenaline junkies amongst you may even want to do a spot of wild water rafting or mountain climbing.
Come and see Alaska in all its splendour combined with the luxury and comfort that only a cruise liner can offer. Alaska cruises offer a holiday with a difference. Come and see the real world!
