Why Take an Alaska Cruise Vacation?
Up north there's a land without fences. Animals outnumber people, sunlight
shines at midnight and nature reigns. Life is different. This northern
frontier still boasts pristine landscapes, majestic wildlife and a coastline
that is one of the most enthralling waterways in the world. Beyond Alaska's
fortress-like glacier walls lie scenic ports of call, treasured national
parks, and abundant wildlife. And, with more than 1,400 miles north to south
and 2,400 miles east to west, it's truly, a land of epic proportions.

Did You Know:
Grizzly bears have been a threatened species
since 1975 in the Lower 48 states? Alaska
however has over 32,000 grizzlies. Considering
Alaska's population is only 670,000, that's 1
bear for every 21 people. Alaska is home to
magnificent glaciers, giant halibut, hardy
outdoorsmen.... and lots of moose. Alaska has 39
mountain ranges. Did you know? The larger ranges
include: Alaska Range, which includes 20,320
foot Mt. McKinley, the continent's tallest peak
, Aleutian Range, a volcano-ridden range on the
Alaska Peninsula, Brooks Range, which is above
the Arctic Circle; the Continental Divide runs
through it and Boundary Ranges, along the
Canadian border of the Inside Passage.
Our trip was excellent. The room, with the
upgrades, was amazing! We saw many eagles (bald
and golden), one bear, many whales, including
one breach, seals, one bear, one wolf, moose and
carribou, and many smaller animals.. If we
travelled during salmon run, we probably would
have seen more bear and eagles. The scenery is
to die for, the vistas spectacular. The ship was
great; service, food, etc were all great. Thanks
for everything. "
Seidler - Island Princess
Ask an Alaska visitor about his or her trip and
you'll likely hear tales about the state's
exotic and awe inspiring wildlife. Chances are,
you'll be regaled with stories and photos of the
encounters with Alaska's wildlife. And who can
blame them? Pictures of Alaska's moose, bears,
caribou, bald eagles, whales and dozens of other
wild species can be a trip's best (and most
memorable) souvenirs. For those who cruise
Alaska by sea, there's the opportunity to spot
the breathtaking breach of a humpback whale or
soaring seabirds such as puffins, terns, gulls,
eiders and many others.
