Stunning, breathtaking and utterly jaw dropping. These are all comments made by vacationers upon their return from amazing cruises to Alaska. Unlike anything most people have ever seen, this is an area of the country that still boasts plenty of untouched wildlife and natural wonder. From ice-blue glaciers and snow-capped mountains to personal encounters with gigantic whales, nature goes about her business providing us with entertainment that is anything but cheap.
Alaska Cruises Offer Variety
Endless summer days give you plenty of time to explore the frozen tundra, watch whimsical wildlife, take exceptional tours and dine on spectacular meals. Because Alaska cruises can cover many popular destinations within a short time, you get the benefit of several vacations in one.
Juneau, the capital of Alaska, has no direct connections to land. Positioned in the midst of a rainforest, air and sea transportation take you to and from this area. Alaska cruises normally arrive in Juneau via the spectacular Inside Passage, a site to see in and of itself. If nature isn't your preferred pastime, Juneau also offers plenty of shopping in its downtown district, where you can find jewelry, Russian dolls, jade or ivory sculptures, specialty coffees and other items handmade by local craftsmen for cheap! Alaska cruises generally also stop in Haines.
Haines is a truly amazing port filled with the makings of memories that will last a lifetime. The Bald Eagle Preserve is a must-see as well as other wildlife including whales, polar bears, grizzlies, sea lions and maybe even a moose. But cruises to Alaska wouldn't be complete without exceptional local food.
While you'll certainly have an almost endless list of dining options onboard your ship, cruises to Alaska also give you the opportunity to experience the best fresh entrees Alaska has to offer. Just imagine the sizzle of Alaskan King salmon as it's grilled to perfection. Freshly caught that day, this wild fish is surprisingly healthy and so tender and delicious. Gigantic Alaskan King crab legs are flaky and light and full of flavor even when dipped in drawn butter or cocktail sauce. Massive, fresh Alaskan halibut fried to a light, golden brown has the perfect combination of crunch and moistness. You might even feel the urge to try fresh, local moose, too. From port to port, part of the wonder and thrill of Alaska cruises is the food!
