Learn More About Alaska - All Cruises
Some of the most phenomenal natural scenery in the world can be found in the great state of Alaska. On a cruise, you will spot rugged glaciers, pristine wilderness and majestic mountains. It's likely you'll also see some amazing wildlife: soaring eagles, curious bears or even whales, sea lions, wolves and caribou. On an Alaska cruise, there are opportunities to explore by land, as well, in numerous intriguing and scenic ports of call. One very popular port city is Ketchikan, known as the King Salmon Capital of the World. Stroll from port a few blocks to Creek Street, a wooden boardwalk with historic houses and shops. It overlooks Ketchikan Creek, which runs right through town. Shore excursions here might include a trip to see Ketchikan's famous totem poles or a floatplane adventure to Misty Fjords National Monument. The Alaskan capital of Juneau is another port of call on most Alaska cruises. The most popular attraction here is massive Mendenhall Glacier, part of the Juneau Icefield. It is a half mile wide with ice 300 to 1,800 feet deep. If you've ever wanted to land on a glacier via helicopter or floatplane and walk on the moving ice, Juneau is the place to take part in this type of exciting adventure. Whale watching is also a hugely popular excursion here. Skagway is a compact town, perfect for strolling from your cruise ship. It boasts a fascinating gold rush history; don't miss the Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park visitor center at Second and Broadway streets. The 30-minute film "Gold Fever," will introduce you to this very interesting part of American history.
