Alaska Cruise Vacation Guide
An Alaska cruise will totally blow you away. It really is the vacation of a lifetime.
I’ve helped countless people plan their Alaska cruises, and time and time again, these people have told me the same thing – their Inside Passage cruise actually exceeded their expectations.
In fact, for many of these people, their Alaskan cruise is their favorite vacation ever. It’s more than just the beauty of the place that makes it so special. It is also the amazing and abundant wildlife, the vast expanses of unspoiled land, and the sense of serenity you can only find in a place this remote and peaceful.
There’s simply no denying it, Alaskan cruises are incredibly special experiences that stay with you for the rest of your life.
What makes an Alaskan Cruise so unforgettable?
In Alaska, you can see enormous, translucent-blue glaciers as they calve huge chunks into the pristine bays of the Inside Passage.
You can sail through steep, misty fjords, their walls covered with lush vegetation and seemingly endless waterfalls plunging down their steep, lush sides.
You can cross streams so filled with salmon you could literally step from one fish to another.
You can hike through virgin stands of absolutely lush and primordial temperate rainforest, looking out over enormous ice fields that seem to shimmer on forever.
You can see whales. Bears. Dall sheep. Bald eagles. Migrating salmon packed into crystal-clear streams.
And, most of all, you can kick back on the deck of your vast cruise ship, relax and take in the most breathtaking scenery that you’ll ever experience.
Working in travel and having traveled extensively, I have seen a lot of amazing and beautiful places.
But there is no place else I have visited that has had such a profound impact on me – I truly fell in love with this place. Alaska is one of those rare places that wins over even the most jaded of visitors. It seems literally everyone falls in love with the place.
Through this site, I’ll take you on a virtual Alaskan cruise:
- I’ll show you the astounding beauty and serenity of Glacier Bay National Park.
- You’ll see the jaw-dropping alpine vistas of Juneau Alaska.
- You’ll explore the quaint shops and rich native culture of Ketchikan Alaska.
- You’ll travel to the majestic Mt. McKinley in Denali National Park..
There is something magical about this region and its affect on those who are fortunate enough to travel there. And because so much of the coastal area of Alaska is inaccessible by car, bus, or train, a cruise is not only the best way to see it, it is pretty much the only way to see it.
Several years back, most people would plan trips through travel agents, who would help plan a special vacation, giving personalized advice on the best things to see and do.
Yet as the large web-based booking portals have come to dominate the market, that personal, one-on-one relationship with a knowledgeable travel agent has been lost.
That’s exactly why I created this site – to allow you to access the type of personal, insider information and advice you would receive from a travel agent.
I believe that the details of a vacation are what make it truly memorable.
That’s why on this site you’ll find information and advice such as:
- my favorite shore excursion
- my pick for the best AK cruise line and best cruise ship
- my suggestions for what you absolutely MUST pack
- which Alaskan cruise lines passengers picked as their favorites
- the one inland tour you really should take
- the one AK cruise destination you really shouldn’t miss
- the top ten myths about Alaska cruises
You can utilize this site as your Alaska tourism resource. Here you will find information to help you plan every facet of your vacation, from choosing your cruise line to planning the perfect shore excursions.
Most of all, I created this site in order to share with you this place which is so special to me, a place I’m sure you’ll fall in love with too.
