Alaskan Adventures – Best Cruise Guide

Fancy something a little bit different from your next holiday? Feel like exploring somewhere new or doing something slightly out of the ordinary? Then allow us to introduce you to Alaska cruises. As holidays go, this is more than just a getaway – it’s the adventure of a lifetime.

There are plenty of cruise operators travelling to this frozen wonderland, with A-list liners like Princess Cruises and fabulous activity-laden ships like Royal Caribbean. All of them offer a superb array of itineraries to Alaska, which really is too good to miss. Here are some of our favourites:

 Royal Caribbean – Radiance of the Seas

Set sail from the fantastic Canadian city of Vancouver and embark on a week-long voyage of Alaska, cruising along the Inside Passage and calling at major Alaskan ports including Ketchikan, the city of Juneau and Skagway. You’ll also get to experience the vast Hubbard Glacier, before completing your tour at Seward.

 Princess Cruises – Island Princess

This 7-night ‘Inside Passage with Glacier Bay’ cruise from Princess is quite the spectacle. It takes in the key ports including Juneau, Skagway and Ketchikan, and offers a round-trip to Vancouver meaning you could build in some extra time to explore this city, and perhaps even take a few days at the end of your trip to discover Canada’s beautiful scenery. Opt for a cruise-and-stay holiday and, at the end of your Alaskan cruise, spend time on Canada’s lush Vancouver Island, or head north to visit the Olympic ski resort of Whistler. The possibilities are endless…

 Norwegian Cruise Line – Norwegian Jewel

NCL is a frontrunner in the cruise holiday industry, and their Alaskan itineraries are among the best in the business. Their Sawyer Glacier itinerary departs from the U.S. city of Seattle and takes in various ports as well as the Sawyer Glacier, before stopping for an afternoon at Victoria in Canada’s British Colombia, and finally completing its itinerary in Vancouver.


There’s a long list of Alaskan adventures out there. Its just a matter of finding your favourite…

    I’m not much of a cruise traveler, but I’ve been hearing about Un-cruise cruises on small ships and those sound fantastic!

  2. Travelling King

    I am the same! Not a huge fan of cruise ships, but i would pay to seee Alaska!

  3. Passport Dave

    Great article and it makes me second guess cruises. I have still never actually been on a cruise so I can’t argue one way or the other really. I have, however, spent about a year in Alaska and I must say that nothing beats renting a car and seeing everything on your own. The cruise would be great though for all the coastal towns that are not accessible by car.

    Hey Dave!
    I agree, im not 100% sure on a cruise but i think being able to seee some of Alaska that can only be seen by water woudl be pretty amazing!

    I’d love to do Alaska one day! I admit I’m not a cruise-type of person but I can imagine there would be jaw-dropping scenery on those cruise ships!

    I cant imagine myself on a cruise ship – I think I would get bored!!! But if it was the only way to see Alaska or some of the icey scenery i would do it!
