On the way to Alaska, why not take a detour to the Pacific Northwest? Cruise from Seattle and see the iconic Space Needle or spend a day art-gallery hopping. Look out over Puget Sound into the beautiful expanse of the Pacific Ocean. This city is a coffee lover’s paradise, so don’t miss your chance to see the birthplace of coffee giant Starbucks or sip an espresso (or two!) at a local roastery.
Ketchikan is uniquely nestled at the southernmost entry to Alaska’s famous Inside Passage, which attracts millions of curious visitors each year. Opt outside and hike along Deer Mountain, or spend a day soaking up Alaskan heritage and history at the Totem Heritage Center or the Tongass Historical Museum. Whatever you do, don’t miss the chance to sample fresh-caught salmon. Animal lovers will enjoy the Alaska Rainforest Sanctuary dedicated to conservation and preservation of native Alaskan species.
The capital city of Alaska has a ton of heart and energy. Juneau is known for its hundreds of species of exotic wildlife, plentiful natural beauty, and hiking destinations galore. Visit Juneau’s stunning glaciers, like the Mendenhall Glacier, or local inlets like Tracy’s Arm.
With a population of less than a thousand people, you might overlook Skagway and mistakenly take it as a tiny Alaskan town with not too much to do. You’d be wrong, though. Skagway’s architecture and some infrastructure dates back to the 19th century Gold Rush, where you can walk in the lucky (and not-so-lucky) footsteps of miners who traversed to Alaska to make their own way in the world and discover their fortune. Take a tour of Gold Rush era buildings and artifacts at Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park, then discover indigenous history at the Skagway Museum. Marvel at the White Pass and Yukon Route, a railroad track where vintage trains sputter along.
Thrill-seekers and rest-seekers can find a shore excursion that perfectly matches their interests during their 2021 Alaska cruise. Experience Alaska's burgeoning craft beer scene. Search for wildlife on sighting tours, where you just might spot humpback whales, sea lions, and more. Embark on a guided journey into the Alaskan wilderness or enjoy fresh, locally caught salmon or crab.
An Alaska cruise vacation isn’t for the faint of heart or the unadventurous. Rugged landscapes, incredible wildlife sightings, and jaw-dropping views are just a few reasons Alaska is one of the most captivating regions of the world. In the summer, soak up the extra daylight and hike among glaciers and in expertly preserved national parks. In autumn, bundle up and get ready for snow sports and a flurry of activity.
Wildlife in Alaska is another draw for travelers and nature enthusiasts alike. Dramatic species like grizzly bears, massive humpback whales, seals, and sea lions are regularly spotted on our itineraries, and shore excursion to national parks and protected wildlife preserves will give you a glimpse of why protecting these special creatures is so important. Local fishing is part of the Alaska experience, so if you can, grab a reel and go fishing for a fresh catch.
