Cruising Alaska is about more than just moments. Cruising Alaska is about memories that last forever!
Big, bold and impossibly beautiful, Alaska stretches beyond the imagination, particularly in her southeastern seas where many ships sail. Ancient glaciers glint majestically, as snow-mantled mountains soar into the cerulean sky. The deep harbors and frontier towns welcome visitors with open arms, eager to reveal their riches. The possibilities are endless, inviting excursions of untold discovery and delight. "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
Taking the Advice of Experts on Cruising Alaska
Advice is yours for the taking and usually there’s plenty of it to go around. So, when it comes to making sure you have chosen the most memorable vacation experience to Alaska, it’s important to carefully consider the source you are getting destination advice from.
The reality is, as much as
you may think, a travel agent cannot be an
expert on every destination. So, there are
Destination Specialists. Cruise lines know this,
so they have invested in destination experts
that you can trust - people who make it their
sole business to know the ins and outs of each
port you are about to visit.
Consider Alaska, for example. This region is overflowing with reasons why you should go there, but being able to zone in on the best places to see and the things to do requires that "Been There...Done That" level of experience and knowledge. To prove our point, take a few minutes and call us at 800.365.1445. The call is free and so is the advice. Speak to these experts, and they will provide you with not just a glimpse, but will share all the do's and don'ts of why visiting the unique and picturesque ports of Alaska is among the best advice they can offer.

We're 100% Certain You Are Going To Have Great Service.
The Sail & Save Satisfaction Guarantee™ is our guarantee of great service. If you’re not happy with any 7 day or longer Cruise or Cruisetour Vacation you booked with us and deposited with the cruise line, that takes you to Alaska, just let us know anytime up to the day before final payment is due.
If It's Not Working Out, We'll work it out
You can cancel for any reason, such as a change of plans, family health reasons, just about any thing up to the day before final payment is due. Plus, if we get something wrong, we’ll work to correct it, or up to the day before final payment is due have the cruise line refund 100% of your Deposit with no hassles, no agency booking fees.* We'll just cancel your booking. Cruise line imposed exclusions will apply, such as that cruise you booked, was based on a "non-refundable deposit" requirement or special "non-refundable fares" restrictions, or the cruise line required full payment at the time of the initial booking. We recommend trip insurance that may cover such circumstances.
Here's What To Do.
At Alaska Cruises Direct, part of Cruise Direct
Online, we understand and appreciate the
importance of your cruise vacation. We also
understand that when you book with us, you are
entrusting our team to deliver a service
experience that has real value and meet or
exceed your expectations. Go ahead and book a
cruise with one of our Certified Cruise Vacation
Planners by phone at 800.365.1445. Then, we'll
place your deposit with the cruise line. We then
give you right up to the day before final
payment is due ( around 75 days prior to sailing
) to cancel your reservation, no questions
asked, to receive a full refund of your deposit.
We commit that to the extent you are in any way
dissatisfied, we will work hard to resolve your
concerns, up to and including providing a full
refund of your deposit, should you wish to
cancel your reservation, without penalty right
up to the day before final payment is required
by the cruise line*. We do not charge any agency
booking or cancellation fees. 100% of your
deposit is refunded, directly by the cruise
line. Once you've made a reservation, and placed
a deposit with the cruise line, payment,
cancellation and refund policies of the cruise
line prevail in all cases. Those policies vary
by cruise line, so be sure to contact them,
review and fully understand their booking and
cancellation policy and fees before making any
payment. We strongly suggest you take out trip
insurance to cover the cruise line's imposed
booking, cancellation fees or penalties, should
you need to cancel your cruise or cruise tour.
As you can well understand, our guarantee will
not apply after final payment is made by you.
* In certain circumstances, say for a special offer or promotion, the cruise line may require, to take advantage of their offer, a non-refundable deposit or non-refundable full payment at the actual time of booking. So, be sure you understand that if you book a cruise or cruise tour under those monetary restrictions, you will be bound by the cruise line's booking policy and therefore you will not get a refund should you cancel. We strongly suggest you take out trip insurance to cover such circumstance, should you need to cancel your cruise or cruise tour. As you can well understand, our good deal vacation guarantee would not apply in this situation.

Comments & Accolades
"The weather this week was incredible, 70 and sunny. Lots of whales, eagles, porpoise, bear, moose etc."

" 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 everything."
"Pat and I returned from an 11 day trip to Alaska. Truly The Last Frontier. We had the pleasure of traveling with 6 of our very dear and close friends, Mike & Susie, Ron & Rachel and Craig & Diane. We saw incredible scenery, moose, mountain sheep and goats, humpback whales, dolphins, and a wolf. We examined Denali (aka Mt. McKinley ) up close and personal in a small airplane. We watched in awe the calving of the immense glaciers in Glacier Bay. The weather was absolutely beautiful."
"Raye and Marty Trencher did a stellar job in planning our recent cruise to Alaska. Not only were we very pleased, but every other member of our group was extremely satisfied. We're currently working with Raye and Marty on our next cruise."
"Burt and I got back last night from our Alaskan cruise/tour. We had a fabulous time. Everything went well, the weather could not have been better. Our tour director was wonderful, as was our driver.
We saw whales, bears, moose, etc. It simple could not have gone any better than it did. We are grateful to you for that."
