Cruise Alaska Sooner Than Later

Back when I was in High School, my dad being an entrepreneur was a bit too busy to take us on vacation, so my mom took things in her own hands. Where could we go that she didn’t need to drive and everything was taken care? Well in the travel section of Vogue Magazine was an article about cruising Alaska. Hmm this sounds like an option, so off we went to our local travel agency and booked a roundtrip sailing out of San Francisco on the one and only Pacific Princess, better known as the Love Boat. The first of many cruises I have taken and while not all on Princess Cruises, but many years later they are still one of the best choices for Alaska with the most ships and many options for doing land tours pre or post cruise.

Do you have dreams of going to Alaska? Well, make those dreams come true and jump aboard one of Alaska's most popular cruise lines. You won't regret it. We want to tell you of the six most significant reasons you should cruise to The Last Frontier sooner rather than later.

1. You decide which cruise line to take. Sailing in Alaska extends from the middle of May to mid-September. During these months, you won't likely see a shortage of cruise line options. Choose to go on a luxury or expedition-style cruise or maybe something a little more unique.

2. Alaska is desirable to people of all ages and tends to be high up on many bucket lists. Many families come here each year to enjoy the beauty of the great state and the broad scope of activities and events. It’s a great option for family reunions, actually it’s my top destination for multi generational family trips.

3. The wildlife is absolutely out of this world. When traveling to Alaska by cruise ship, don't be surprised to spot bear hunting for fish, whales, eagles, and several other beautiful creatures.

4. Dare to go dog sledding? You may have to take a helicopter ride to get into the mountains first. This could be one thrilling adventure. Best of all, you get to hang with sweet huskies all day.

5. Go on a land tour before or after your cruise. Hike through the Denali National Park or the Kenai River Valley.

6. Sadly, Alaska won't be as charming as it is now, forever. Right now, you can see the nation in all of its iconic glory. From lush forests to enormous glaciers, there is so much to admire before global warming takes it all away. I can tell you I was shocked in 1995 when I visited the visible difference in the size of some of the glaciers in Glacier Bay National Park from 15 years previous.

Alaska truly is one of the most magical places on Earth, and it's right here in the United States. If you, like almost everyone else, have "visit Alaska" on your bucket list, what are you waiting for? There's no better way to visit the state than by ship, so contact us now to start learning of all the cruise line options. Before you know it, you'll have a one-of-a-kind vacation planned that will undoubtedly bring you memories that last a lifetime.
