(4:40 p.m. GMT) -- Royal Caribbean has released its 2018 Alaska programme to the U.K. and Ireland, featuring 10 new cruise tour options for passengers to add to the start or end of their cruise holiday.
The new cruise tours allow passengers to experience Alaska's stunning interior landscape, and feature in addition to the two existing tours -- Kantishna Select Wilderness & Wildlife and Katmai Bear Trek & Kantishna Fly Over -- which launched for the 2017 season.
New cruise tours include Alaska Interior Express, Mountain Valley Explorer, Alaska Wildlife Express, Wilderness Frontier Explorer and Mountain Panorama Adventure, among others.
Cruise tours can be tagged onto sailings on the 3,284-passenger Explorer of the Seas -- which will continue to offer seven-night return sailings from Seattle -- or the 2,112-passenger Radiance of the Seas, which will offer seven- and nine-night Alaska & Hubbard Glacier itineraries, starting in Seward and ending in Vancouver, or vice versa.
