Cruises to Alaska

The 49th State, the largest in the U.S., is perfect for cruisers, with numerous opportunities to appreciate its vast natural beauty. Sail along the Inside Passage to visit the immense ice formations of Glacier Bay and Icy Strait, as well popular ports such as Ketchikan, Skagway and Juneau, the only U.S. state capital that's not accessible by car. Or travel further north to the Kenai Peninsula and nearby Anchorage, a perfect jumping off point for cruisetours to Denali, Fairbanks and Canada's Yukon. Maybe you'll see a bear!

This was my third cruise. My first was a Carribean the second was in Hawaii. All three with Norwegian. To my surprise the Alaskan cruise was my favorite by far. So much to see. I loved waking up and looking off the balcony of my storeroom to see a ... Read more
This cruise is somewhat difficult to rate. On the one hand, the crew was marvelous for the most part; the onboard activities were satisfactory to excellent; and the excursions were stellar. On the other hand, we had a major problem with ... Read more
