Alaska's Big 3! Glaciers
Imagine sailing past towering peaks of snowy white
glaciers, miles wide. Only the sounds of wind and
seagulls disturb the silence. Then a massive
crackling and a thunderous roar echo across the
pristine bay. The ice-scape rumbles and quakes as
the glacier splinters and calves, sending ice and
snow cascading into the sea. There's no spectacle in
the world that surpasses these towering frozen
masses and best displays the fierce majesty of the
Eagles nesting in treetops. Moose grazing through
lush meadows surrounded by snow-capped mountain
ranges. A breaching whale crashing down into the
tranquil sea. On an Alaska vacation, it's not
uncommon for you to see all of these animals and
more, such as Denali National Park's Big 5: brown
bears, wolves, moose, Dall sheep and caribou. You'll
also have plenty of chances to enjoy the sights of
humpback, beluga and orca whales, along with harbor
seals, sea lions and sea otters frolicking in the
water. Majestic Mountains
Take a moment to pause and gaze up. Massive,
eternally snow-capped mountains rise majestically
against the bright blue sky, which darkens to a
majestic indigo at twilight. Wild, untamed and
exquisitely unique, this astounding landscape dwarfs
your wildest imagination. No other place offers such
untouched beauty. Home to almost 3,000 peaks and
Denali, North America's tallest mountain, Alaska's
summits are a feast for your eyes. And one you'll

Alaska's rugged southeastern coast represents some
of nature's best work. The intricate waterways of
the Inside Passage, dotted with thousands of
islands, big and small. The high cliffs of Misty
Fjords. The deep bays that welcome whales every
summer. The towering blue ice of Hubbard Glacier.
Where life is centered around the water, a cruise is
the ideal choice. But a journey into the interior
reveals so much more. Mighty rivers fed by massive
glaciers. Towns where moose stroll the streets. The
vast taiga forests and rolling tundra of Denali
National Park. And the Great One itself - Denali,
the mountain standing tall over the rest of the
snow-covered Alaska Range.
With a Royal Caribbean Cruisetour, you enjoy both.
And with the personal attention and expertise of a
dedicated Adventure Specialist, you'll explore the
wild lands of the Last Frontier your way. If you're
going the distance, discover the best of Alaska by

Whales and Bear!
" 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 caribou, 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

What Is a Cruisetour ? [ Land + Sea Combination
Nothing Compares to an Alaska Vacation
"To fully experience Alaska, discover its interior,
where communities remain intimately connected to the
land, where wild animals roam as they have for
millennia and where native nations thrive. On an
Alaska cruise, you'll journey along the southeast
coastline of Alaska, experiencing its glaciers,
nature's ever-changing and fragile masterpieces. But
with a land & sea combination vacation known as a
Cruisetour, you'll uncover so much more.
On the Kenai Peninsula, glacier-covered mountains
descend into bays abundant with sea life. Journey
north, and you'll travel among the vast tundra and
taiga forests of Denali National Park. A single road

Take An Adventure To The Last Frontier in Alaska
Everything about Alaska is massive - from the
90-pound cabbages grown in the Matanuska Valley to
the coastline that's longer than all the other U.S.
states combined. North America's tallest peak,
Denali, beckons from the center of the state and its
wild, beating heart, Denali National Park. Hike
through this vast wilderness, where taiga forests
full of pines and spruce stretch below the towering
peaks. Sail by the icy beauty of some of the world's
most impressive glaciers, from the Hubbard Glacier
and the Tracy Arm Fjord. Cruise to Alaska to rent a
bike and pedal along Anchorage's Coastal Trail for
sweeping views of the rugged forests and the
The focal point of Denali National Park is
20,310-foot Denali, the tallest peak in
North America. Princess cruisetours take you
close to this inspiring wonder as well as
other breathtaking ranges such as
Wrangell-St. Elias. Take a moment to pause
and gaze up. Massive, eternally snow-capped
mountains rise majestically against the
bright blue sky, which darkens to a majestic
indigo at twilight. Wild, untamed and
exquisitely unique, this astounding
landscape dwarfs your wildest imagination.
No other place offers such untouched beauty.
Home to almost 3,000 peaks and Denali, North
America's tallest mountain, Alaska's summits
are a feast for your eyes. And one you'll

What to Expect on an Alaska Cruisetour [ Land + Sea
Vacation ] Cruisetours combine a 7 day cruise with a
multi-day land experience, with a choice of visits
to Denali, Kenai, Copper River, Canada's Yukon
Territory, Anchorage, Haines, Talkeetna, and
Fairbanks. The Most Popular Route:
The typical Anchorage-Denali-Fairbanks [ or in
reverse order ] cruisetour is offered before or
after a north - or -southbound Gulf of Alaska Voyage
of the Glaciers cruise, sailing between Vancouver
and either Seward or Whittier, the two main docking
ports for Anchorage. When you disembark your cruise
ship you will head for Anchorage via motorcoach or,
if they're sailing with Princess Cruises, board a
"direct to the wilderness" train directly at
Whittier to Denali. The train gets you there sooner.
From Anchorage you go on up to Denali National Park,
a 6-million-acre preserve full of wildlife
(bears, moose, dall sheep, fox, eagles and more),
massive glaciers and majestic mountains and valleys,
sweeping views of subarctic tundra, and Denali
(formally known as Mt. McKinley), North America's
highest peak at 20,320 feet. Travelers stay at
lodges in or around the park perimeter, some owned
Princess. After a one or two day visit
you'll go by train to Fairbanks, which is a hub for
amazing activities in its outlying areas, including
paddle-wheel day cruises on the Chena and Tanana
rivers, jet-boat rides, and excursions to gold mines
and retired dredges. Passengers typically fly home
from Fairbanks. Anchorage-Denali-Fairbanks cruisetours generally run between 10 and 14 nights.
A typical route, such as Princess's popular "Denali
Adventure" tours, spends two days at Denali and one
in Fairbanks, with the option of adding a second day
in Fairbanks and one in Anchorage. Optional
extensions to Kenai Peninsula and/or the
Wrangell - St. Elias National Park and Preserve.
Exclusive Princess Cruises Alaska Mini-Group Rates. Planning a Cruise Together for Alaska? It just Got Easier & Cheaper!
2 Couples or more extra savings. Families of 4 or more. Save even more! All you need is a few friends or family willing to travel together on the same sailing, and a reason to do it--say a family reunion, birthday, graduation celebration, club outing, or just for fun. Sometimes a group starts as just two couples and before they know it, they've invited enough people to eliminate their own cost of cruising. Call us for details 800.365.1445. Save hundreds off regular prices.
Who You'll Be Cruising and Touring With
While Alaska cruises and cruisetours can be enjoyed by people of all
ages, they generally appeal to people more advanced
in age - baby boomers, in particular. Many Alaska
cruise lines allow children aboard their ships and
although they may have age restrictions in place and
a land tour may not be ideal for very young
children. The makeup
of a cruise or land tour can include people of a wide range of
nationalities, but more often than not, guests come
from the United States and Canada.
Best Times to Go
Whether you choose to travel in June, July, August
or May, or September, you'll be able to gain a deep cultural,
active and inspirational experience in Alaska. In
the summer, you may witness local outdoor events and
lively activities that only occur during the warmer
months of the year. Cooler weather in early May or
September may mean you'll run into fewer people in the
streets of towns, cities and seaside ports you
visit, which will allow you to take your time and
get a closer look at sites that interest you without
feeling rushed or crowded.
Alaska's culinary scene sizzles, so grab a fork and
dig in! Restaurants serve up tantalizing tastes that
will please any palate. Dishes draw on fresh Alaska
ingredients, but also incorporate cuisines from
around the globe. Anchorage is the perfect place to
enjoy an array of flavors amid an Alaska journey.
Start the day sunny-side up, fuel a day's travels,
celebrate with an unforgettable dinner or enjoy
sweet desserts. Just steps from Alaska waters, chefs
delight in presenting Alaska's wild-caught seafood
and locally grown produce. If it's a hankering for
halibut or a craving for crab, local restaurateurs
provide an unequaled feast from Alaska waters.
Whether ensconced with a magnificent view of the
mountains, cuddling in a cozy cafe, sipping a
marvelous martini, imbibing a local microbrew or
grabbing a reindeer hot dog to go, Alaska offers
options to fit every taste and budget. Bon appetit!

Given that weather will be variable depending on where
your Alaska cruise takes you, bringing along both warm
and light clothes is wise. Even during the summer
months, there is rain, and temperatures can vary from
hot to cool, from port to port, so it's best to plan for
layers even if the weather is hot. Additionally, you'll
likely be doing a lot of walking, so bring along
comfortable shoes. Lastly, pack comfortable clothes for
outdoor activities and a few dressier items for onboard
events. Be sure to bring along bug spray, sun glasses,
hats, and a rain jacket.

for travel insurance.
Travel insurance is important, you should never take a
cruise without it. Travel Insurance provides coverage in
the wake of unexpected inconveniences such health issues
while traveling, travel delays or lost luggage. Just
about every cruise line offers trip insurance, however
their rates and policy benefits may not meet your
specific needs. Get quotes from a third-party company
Travel Guard and
compare that with the cruise line offers. You may not
only save money, but the policy benefits may be better.
How Taking an Alaska Cruise Differs from a Cruisetour
Adventuring in Alaska is all about getting to know this state's stunning landscape.
Spend some time exploring the quiet lakes, imposing glaciers and breathtaking mountain views,
and you'll have only warm impressions of this wilderness. Exploring the interior of Alaska will give you an entirely
different perspective on this vast and rugged state. Take an Inside Passage or
Voyage of the Glaciers cruise and gaze upward at the sky that is as blue as the lakes below. Hop on the Alaskan Railroad near Anchorage and see the spruce-lined, mountainous landscape whirl by from a new perspective. Alaska is tailor-made for
once-in-a-lifetime experiences. Whether you sail its icy bays trying to spot huge cold-water whales or fly high above this rough-and-tumble landscape from the vantage of a helicopter, you're sure to come away with memories you couldn't have made anywhere else.
Alaskan Cruise Routes Alaskan cruises take the Inside Passage route that sails round-trip from San
Francisco, Los Angeles, Vancouver or Seattle with ports of call choices of
Juneau, Sitka, Ketchikan, Skagway, Icy Strait Point, Haines and Glacier Bay with
a stop in Vancouver or Victoria Canada. The Gulf of Alaska - Voyage of the
Glaciers route sails between Vancouver and Whittier or Seward ports for
Anchorage or vice versa. Ports of call might include Glacier Bay and/ or Tracy
Arm, Hubbard Glacier as well as the Inside Passage ports of Ketchikan, Juneau,
and Skagway. Gulf of Alaska cruises usually debark or embark in either
Seward, which is 125 miles from Anchorage or Whittier which is 65 miles from
Anchorage. Land tour extensions to interior Alaska, with rail and/or motorcoach
transportation to visit Denali National Park, Copper River, Kenai or Canada's
Yukon Territory start in Anchorage or Fairbanks.
Lots to See and Do Alaska journeys are full of shore excursions from the mild to the wild.
Whale watching, dog sledding, hiking, river rafting, fishing, flightseeing,
helicopter glacier landings. These are just a few once-in-a-lifetime experiences
among hundreds of choices.

Capital of the World". Ketchikan boasts the largest number of totem poles in
Alaska, a collection that includes recently carved poles and some that are more
