Alaska Cruises

Imagine waking up on-board a luxury cruise ship and stepping out onto your balcony to be greeted by stunning glaciers and humpback whales breaching in the ocean. That is the reality when you treat yourself to any of our Alaska cruises.

The most striking sight is regularly considered to be the Inside Passage, which is a protected labyrinth of fjords that are regularly ornamented by sunbathing sea lions. Remember, though, to keep your eyes peeled for the Hubbard Glacier. Not that you’d miss it: it’s the largest calving glacier on the North American continent with icebergs as high as a 10-story building!

Then on land, you’ll find yourself gasping with delight as you explore cities, mountains, and seaside towns. As the largest American state, you’ll be treated to a diverse range of experiences and opportunities to appreciate why countless people consider Alaska to be the world’s final frontier.

Then there are the rustic Alaskan cruise ports. Explore the capital of Juneau, which is the only North American capital not accessible by road. Wander into the largest Alaskan city of Anchorage, where moose and bears regularly roam the streets. Gawk at North America’s highest peak, Denali (formerly known as Mount McKinley). Roam the Russian-inspired fishing village of Sitka, where the focal point is St. Michael’s Orthodox Cathedral. Keep an eye out for bears and porpoises in the fjords and forests of Ketchikan. Then finally you'll find Skagway, where you can hop aboard the historic White Pass and Yukon Route Railway.

To make your cruise to Alaska as perfect as possible, you need to choose the correct cruise ship. Many of the world's most sought-after cruise lines have ships positioned in Alaska. There’s Celebrity Cruises, who specialise in laid-back luxury and boast cutting-edge technology onboard their ships. Also popular is the Holland America Line, who offer cultural onboard programmes and immersive culinary experiences. If you’re looking for something that sets a new standard of luxury, then you’ll find Regent Seven Seas, Seabourn, Silversea, and Oceania sailing the Alaskan waters. And if you’re looking for a family-friendly experience, NCL and Royal Caribbean also offer Alaskan cruise itineraries.

If you book a 2020 Alaska Cruise now, you can also benefit from a fantastic upgrade offer from Oceanview to Balcony Stateroom and free-spending money! With some cruise lines, you can also enjoy a complimentary drinks package, which will save you up to £350 per person on a 7-night cruise.
