While any cruise to Alaska is certain to provide surreal views of natural beauty and otherworldly experiences within vast expanses of untamed nature, visiting solely by cruise ship is seeing only half of it. To truly discover all that Alaska has to offer, your best bet is to book an Alaska Cruisetour.
With cruise packages ranging anywhere from seven days starting in Seattle and port-hopping up the coast, to fourteen days split between the glacier-coated coast and traversing the rugged wilderness inland, the only limit to how much you’ll explore is your own ambition. And with specialized itineraries designed to intrigue a wide range of interests—be it a Northbound Cruisetour to the heart of Denali National Park, a Southbound Cruisetour to Sawyer Glacier, or everything in between—you’re likely to find your very own slice of paradise no matter where you end up.
Just because you’re exploring the rugged wilderness, doesn’t mean you’ll be roughing it. Norwegian Cruise Line boasts a trio of state-of-the-art ships cruising the Alaska coast: Norwegian Jewel, Norwegian Bliss and Norwegian Joy. Each is equipped with a wide variety of modern amenities and fine dining, allowing you to make the most of your time between adventures on shore. Whether it’s racing go-karts onboard Norwegian Joy, savoring the rich and smoky flavors of Texas barbeque in Q onboard Norwegian Bliss or just taking in the fresh air while strolling the newly refurbished deck on Norwegian Jewel, know that your time at sea will be spent in fun-filled luxury.
Of course, the luxury doesn’t end at the shoreline. All of Norwegian’s Cruisetours provide for complete comfort during your time spent on land. A tour guide is arranged and provided for points of interest, so you can spend the day living in the moment instead of deciphering a map. Depending on your tour, you can also expect deluxe hotel accommodations to welcome you at the end of a day full of adventure. And, for all the time spent in-between, you’ll roll in style thanks to the number of railcar options onboard the scenic Alaska Railroad.
What are the benefits of a thorough exploration of Alaska by land and sea? The wealth of experiences you’ll traverse and accumulate. Depending on the tour you book, you might tour the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center, visit an Iditarod Sled Dog Musher’s kennel, explore Denali with a Tundra Wilderness Tour, pan for gold to strike it rich at a historic gold dredge, enjoy a salmon fishing excursion or visit the Alaska oil pipeline. Between these, and all the moments of wonder in-between, there is plenty of competition for the memory you’ll treasure most.
