Alaskan voyages are cruise expeditions that are rich in wildlife, spectacular scenery and unique itineraries. Designed for adventurous travellers, these voyages are some of the world’s greatest journeys, bringing out the explorer within.
Alaska cruises from San Francisco vary in length and are great for seeing the American pacific coast. Visiting Alaskan ports like Ketchikan and Juneau, some itineraries also call in Astoria, Oregon, a quaint town located at the mouth of the Columbia River.
Seattle offers cruises to Alaska that end in Seattle or Vancouver. While both routes sail the historic Inside Passage, Seattle-bound trips sail along the west coast of Vancouver Island, while Vancouver-bound trips sail between Vancouver Island and British Columbia’s mainland.
Cruises out of Vancouver will end in either Vancouver or Seattle and will sail the 999-mile Inside Passage from Vancouver to Skagway. It is considered one of the most exciting cruising routes to spot wildlife both on land and in the water.
A voyage starting in Vancouver and ending in Whittier or Seward, ports of call may include Juneau, Ketchikan, and Skagway, the charming gold rush town, as well as Glacier Bay National Park, an UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Beginning in Whittier or Seward and ending in Vancouver, these voyages stop at Icy Strait Point, Juneau, and Ketchikan, as well as breathtaking glaciers along the way. The closest airport to both Whittier and Seward is the Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport.
Offered at both ends of the Alaska sailing season, Pacific Coastal cruises are 1-10 days and feature unusual ports of call, such as San Diego, Santa Barbara, Monterey, Ensenada, and Santa Catalina Island, known as a hidden gem and “hideout” for the rich and famous.
