Cruising: It's the iconic Alaska vacation experience. Alaska's Inside Passage is among the most popular cruise destinations in the world due to its dramatic scenery, abundant wildlife and calm, protected waters. Quirky and colorful coastal communities add to the charm. The entire region is part of the largest national forest in the country, which means outdoor recreation opportunities are near limitless. With all this in mind, the question isn't whether to cruise Alaska, it's how to do it!
Alaska Cruise Options for All
There's an Alaska cruise vacation to suit virtually everyone. Whether you want to enjoy the diverse amenities available on large ships or customize a yacht cruise for a few dozen of your closest friends and family, the experts at All Alaska Tours will help you create the perfect Alaska cruise vacation.
With a dizzying array of amenities and itinerary options, large-ship cruises are the most popular way to experience the Inside Passage. Cruises depart from Seattle, Washington or Vancouver, British Columbia en route to Alaska's Inside Passage with stops in popular ports like Ketchikan, Juneau and Skagway. Itineraries are either round trip or one way. One-way cruises can be combined with land tours to Anchorage, Denali National Park, Fairbanks and beyond. The wide range of room types on larger ships fit most any budget, and an extensive menu of tours in each port highlight the region's best.
Whether your focus is cultural heritage, outdoor activities or quiet luxury, All Alaska Tours' small-ship Alaska cruise offerings aim to please. Itineraries start and end in Alaska and range from 7 to 14 nights. These itineraries include sights and experiences you won't find on the larger ships, including up-close wildlife viewing, smaller coves and bays, and off-the-beaten track communities. How small is small? These ships accommodate between 26 and 86 guests, and while they may not have an onboard casino or multiple restaurants, they do feature top-notch dining, spa facilities, naturalists and plenty of guided activities like kayaking and hiking.
Luxury yacht cruises
This is the crème-de-la-crème of Alaska cruising. Eight-day Inside Passage itineraries start and end in Juneau. Along the way, itinerary highlights are more about experiences than locations. At Icy Strait, humpback whales are plentiful and an onboard hydrophone will allow you to listen to them as well as see them. Enjoy mountain biking through the temperate rainforest when you go ashore on one of the many secluded islands along the Inside Passage. As you glide quietly through Glacier Bay National Park, roll out your yoga mat for a truly blissful experience. Gourmet food, a wine bar and spa are just some of the onboard amenities. You can also charter an Alaska yacht cruise to suit your preferences.
