www.CruiseOceania.com Has The Biggest Savings On Alaska Cruises Plus Exclusive Bonus OffersAmerica's Last Frontier is, in a word, amazing. Its sheer size alone - larger than California, Montana, and Texas put together, and with more miles of coastline than all of the other U.S. states combined - is mind-boggling. Add to that the state's breathtaking natural beauty, largely unspoiled - from its abundance of wildlife and its enormous national parks to more than three million crystal-clear lakes and over half the planet's glaciers - and it's easy to see why so many people consider a trip to Alaska to be a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
Alaska's size and remoteness can seem overwhelming, though. And there are plenty of folks who believe getting there is just too expensive. But that's where our tremendous Alaska cruise deals and discounts come into play. Cruising Alaska is the only way to go; you'll pack and unpack once, visiting all of the state's key attractions in one seamless and convenient journey, and you'll pay one guaranteed low price that includes all of your meals and drinks, your accommodations, and more.
Planning Your Alaska CruiseAn Alaska cruise requires special planning, and our experts are standing by to assist you with all the details. The first thing you'll want to keep in mind is that Alaska's sailing season is comparatively short, lasting from just May to September (with a peak season that runs from mid-June to mid-August), so staterooms always fill up fast; you'll want to book as early as possible for the best rates and selection. And stateroom selection is especially important on an Alaskan cruise; unlike most other kinds of cruises (where the top sights are primarily located in port), much of the action on an Alaska voyage takes place at sea - the breaching whales, the calving glaciers, etc. - so you'll want to think strongly about booking a stateroom that includes a private balcony (you'll also want to pay attention to which side of the ship it's on; for optimum scenery, always choose a starboard stateroom when sailing south to north and a port-side stateroom when cruising the reverse).
The next thing you'll need to consider is which kind of Alaska cruise you'll take. Most will fall into one of two categories: a roundtrip sailing to and from the same port (either Seattle or Vancouver) or a one-way voyage between Vancouver and either Whittier or Seward. Either way, you should expect a seven-night sailing.
Things To See & Do On An Alaska CruiseYou've selected your sailing. You've picked out a stateroom. Now, it's time to decide what you'll want to see and do once you've arrived in port.
Alaska offers something for everyone, but it's an especially excellent choice for active cruisers in search of thrilling adventures: highlights include a helicopter tour of the Juneau Icefield (followed by a memorable dogsled ride conducted at a healthy clip), a challenging hike along Mendenhall Glacier, sea kayaking, zip-line expeditions, and more.
Guests looking to tour Alaska's inland at a more leisurely pace are in luck, too: relaxed options include bear-viewing and whale-watching excursions, an authentic (and all-you-can-eat) salmon bake, the opportunity to pan for (real) gold, or a scenic stroll among the technicolor totem poles of both Saxman Village and Totem Bight Historical Park.
No matter your preference, it's always a good idea to book your excursions well in advance of departure - much like Alaska cruises themselves, Alaska shore excursions always sell out quickly, and capacity is extremely limited on most types of outings.
Alaska Ports Of Call & Other Alaska HighlightsDepending on the Alaska itinerary you choose, your cruise ship may dock in Juneau (Alaska's capital); Anchorage (Alaska's largest city, and home to half of the state's population); Ketchikan ("The Salmon Capital of the World"); and/or Skagway (a key destination for passengers with an interest in Alaska's Gold Rush history). Additional highlights include the Inside Passage (Southeast Alaska's spectacularly scenic coastal route, lined with glacier-formed fjords and lush, forest-covered islands); Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve (well over 500,000 acres of protected wilderness, situated in the Alaska panhandle west of Juneau), and Icy Strait Point, home to Hoonah, the largest Tlingit (indigenous) village in the state and a popular jumping-off point for shore excursions.
