When people think of cruises, they want beautiful surroundings and to be entertained. Throw in a touch of luxury and people will find themselves with a wonderful vacation.
It’s true that many people feel like tropical destinations are the only way to get all of these things. However, those people are forgetting one of the best cruise destinations out there. They forget about Alaska.
Alaskan cruises have been an alternative to the typical tropical cruise for quite a long time. People hear that and often are nervous that they are heading up to the frozen North. However cruise season for Alaska lasts from May to September. This means that the weather is typically going to vary from coolish to warm. There’s the added benefit that it rarely reaches the scorching heat that can be uncomfortable to many people and no freezing temperatures to chill a person to their bones. So what makes an Alaskan cruise so tempting? Read further to answer those questions.
As mentioned, an Alaskan cruise is about the beautiful environments that are difficult to find anywhere else in the world. Alaska is one of the last places on the planet that has huge swaths of untamed wilderness. Or at least one of the last places in the world where you can get to it fairly easily. Here are some of the highlights for many people as they enjoy their Alaskan cruise:
The name suggests cruises in a different part of the world, but it’s certainly a part of the world that understands colder climates. The Norwegian Pearl Alaskan cruise package is very convenient for Americans since it starts and ends in Seattle. In fact, every stop aside from a brief one in Victoria Canada are on US soil. A passport is barely needed! These cruises are 7 days and fairly affordable.
Celebrity cruise lines are another Alaskan cruise company with a couple of ships that are known for the trip. They are well stocked with activities at ports and many people get to enjoy dog sledding or a crab feast at stops. Their cruises will often last from 7 to 21 days and typically have a specific theme for each one. Some may focus on nature, while others will focus on the culture of the region.
Another great cruise liner comes from Royal Caribbean and cruises around Alaska for the people’s touring delight. This monster ship is almost 300 meters long and holds 2500 passengers for each voyage.
