What to Expect on an Alaska Cruise

Alaska cruises appeal to many people who love the outdoors and crave a look at vast areas of untouched forests. A cruise up the southeast coast and through the Inside Passage will give passengers a look at spectacular landscapes, deep blue water, crystal-clear sky, and a backdrop of steep pine-covered slopes decorated with towering waterfalls.

There are stunning glaciers, of course, including the nearly 14-mile-long Mendenhall Glacier near Juneau, and the captivating scenery at Kenai Fjords National Park. Explore Yakutat Bay, where charming harbor seals perch along the water’s edge.

Some of the state’s most attractive spots are its historic towns. Quaint main streets, dynamic art galleries, and bustling markets capture the vibrant Alaskan spirit. History buffs will also enjoy the rustic coastal towns that grew up in the gold rush era. Native American cultures have left their mark on these Alaskan towns, too, from the Tlingit totem pole park in Ketchikan to the many native crafts for sale in local galleries.

Adventurous travelers will enjoy Alaska cruises. There are plenty of opportunities to explore giant glaciers, go on a whale-watching cruise or hike into the wild places that border the ports of call. Shore excursions can take you to the mountaintops on a train, or on a thrilling ride through the snow behind a sled dog team.

Many Alaska cruises include a visit to Glacier Bay Park and Preserve. It spans 3.3 million acres surrounded by spruce forests and is fed by over 1,000 large and tiny glaciers. Keep your eyes open for sea otters, porpoises, coyotes, bears, and other wildlife along the shoreline.
