Alaska Cruises

Alaskan cruises are a great way to see the “Frontier State” from the land and sea. There are many things to do in Alaska but sometimes time is limited, or depending on the season, travel can be difficult. Therefore, sometimes a cruise or vacation package may be the best way to get the most out of your Alaskan vacation.

Alaska has a myriad of islands and nearly 34,000 miles of tidal shoreline. It is home to many volcanoes, including Mount Shishaldin, the most perfect volcanic cone on Earth. It is also actively undergoing continent building, according to geologists.

One of the world’s largest tides occurs just south of Anchorage. Alaska also has more than three million lakes, marshlands, and wetland permafrost. Glacier ice covers about 16,000 square miles of land, and Alaska has half of all glaciers in the world, at a whopping 100,000 glaciers to count. Plus, do not forget about the mystical and beautiful Northern Lights, which can be seen during certain times of the year.
