Alaska is a land tailor made for exploring by cruise ship, with calving glaciers, waterfalls and forested islands all gathered on a narrow coastal platform, fixed between mountains and sea. Inlcuding a host of wildlife from bears and eagles to salmon and whales, Alaska contains some of the most remote and spectacular landscapes on earth.

When to Visit?

The cruise season for Alaska is between May and September, with July and August by far the most popular months. Temperatures for the Alaska cruise season can range from 10C to 20C, depending on month but the weather is changeable, with May and June the driest months.

The Inside Passage

Cruises to Alaska's Inside Passage will start and finish in either Vancouver or Seattle, generally taking 7 nights to navigate the sheltered and twisting waterways between coast and myriad islands. Heading as far north as Glacier Bay and Skagway, you will then turn south including Sitka, Juneau and more on the way.

Glaciers

Cruises exploring the majestic Glaciers of Alaska will travel north from Vancouver or Seattle or south from Whittier, and are usually 7 nights in length. Following the Inside Passage these exploration voyages will call at the "pandhandle ports" of Alaska's goldrush age before heading into the Gulf of Alaska and Yakutat Bay or Prince William Sound, passing by some of Alaska's most active and impressive glaciers.

The Bearing Sea

Bounded on one side by Alaska's western coast, Russia on the east and, to the north, the Arctic Circle, the Bearing Sea features some of the most spectacular and remote islands on earth. Here you can visit remote settlements of the indigenous peoples along with the stunning Aleutian and Commander Islands.
