Alaska Cruise Guide

Alaska is one of the world’s most popular cruise destinations, famed for relentlessly beautiful scenery stretching along its icy coastline. From the boat, you may see orcas playing in the water or bald eagles flying overhead. Gaze in awe at rocky, snow-capped mountains cascading into glacial blue waters. Alaska cruises offers myriad options for ports, ships and itineraries.

Typical Alaska cruise vacations last about seven days, either heading inland to ports along the Gulf of Alaska such as Juneau, Seward, or Whittier. These shorter journeys tend to leave from Seattle or Vancouver. Longer sailings are available, with 14-day round-trip Alaska cruise from San Francisco offering spectacular views of the American and Canadian west coasts.

Alaska is immensely popular as a cruise destination, which means you can shop around for Alaska cruise deals. Peak times are the summer months of June, July and August, when you have the warmest weather and the best chance of spotting wildlife. Plan your cruise during the months on either side to get a cheap cruise to Alaska with fewer fellow travelers.
