I saw humpback whales in Kenai Fjords National Park, and joined the ‘1% club’ when I glimpsed the peak of Mount Denali on a clear day. I saw glaciers taller than skyscrapers and bears foraging on the shoreline, all in one holiday.

Just imagine yourself aboard a luxurious Alaskan cruise: you make your way to the top deck and wave goodbye to the beautiful skyline of Vancouver. As you pull out of the harbour, the city twinkles on one side, mountains soar on the other. As you cruise ahead, the Inside Passage opens up into vast stretches of shimmering blue water. You can see whales breaching and bald eagles overhead. Soon the jagged icebergs and ice floes of Alaska come into view. A cruise to Alaska is certainly like no other!
Holland America Line, Celebrity, and Cunard cruise ships make their way up the dramatic Inside Passage as you sail from Vancouver to Alaska. Cruising is one of the best ways to see these rugged coastal landscapes and hard-to-reach wilderness areas. At each stop you can enjoy exciting tours and excursions to get a real insight into the different cultures and ways of life in Alaska. After a busy day, simply relax as your every need is taken care of. The hardest decision will be deciding which gourmet restaurant to dine in that evening!
