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!

I didn't come into the cruise expecting the four seasons or mandarin. However, objectively, so far, huge disappointment. Service is way sub par and disorganized. Cattle herding. No personal attention. Food in main dining hall pretty gross. I was ... Read more
