Alaska Cruises and Great Alaskan Activites

Alaska has a large number of magical features that make it one of the top cruise locations in the world. Alaskan cruises give you the chance to see wildlife, glaciers, and even North America's tallest mountain, Mt. McKinley.


Alaska Cruise in Ketichikan Creek Street


The best Alaskan cruises begin in May and end in September. Prior and post this time period, the days are much shorter and the weather is much colder and wetter. Late Spring, Summer, and early Fall offer you the best chance to comfortably experience the natural wonders of our largest state.



Most of the larger lines service Alaskan cruises, including Carnival Cruise Line, Celebrity Cruises, Cruise West, Crystal Cruises, Holland America Line, Norwegian Cruise Line, Princess Cruises, Radisson Seven Seas Cruises and Royal Caribbean International.



Be prepared for a wide variety of Alaskan activities. Alaska cruises will offer you the opportunity to go sea kayaking by glaciers, ice fishing, bird & wildlife watching, hiking, and even berry picking.

In preparation for your Alaskan cruise, make sure you bring clothes for both warm and cold climate. In prime cruise months, weather can vary from relatively cold to toasty and warm.
