Luxury Alaska Cruises
Take advantage of the opportunity to explore a genuine wilderness in style and comfort and experience the exceptional landscapes and wildlife that make a luxury Alaska cruise such an exciting and original option.
America's largest state, Alaska is a sprawling terrain of grand and imposing landscapes, with some three million lakes, 100,000 glaciers and a coastline longer than all the other states combined. The local wildlife is similarly impressive - leaping salmon, hungry brown bears, majestic bald eagles as well as orca and humpback whales are all likely to make an appearance during your luxury Alaska cruise.
When to go:
Mid-May to September is when most cruises to Alaska operate, with July and August the most popular months.
In this land of few roads, a cruise is the ideal - and sometimes the only - way to explore. The majority of cruise lines run round-trip cruises from Seattle or Vancouver. Others begin in the ports of California, allowing you to soak up the whole of the West Coast before reaching Alaska. Some will even continue west, crossing the Pacific to dock in Tokyo or Beijing.
Highlights include the breathtaking fjords of the Inside Passage; the former gold rush town of Skagway, the quaint port town of Ketchikan for the Misty Fjords, the state capital Juneau, from where you can explore the Mendenhall Glacier, the coastal rainforests and mountain peaks of Prince William Sound; and watching huge walls of ice sheer off from the mainland and crash into the waters of gleaming Glacier Bay.
