Alaska Cruise Highlights

Alaska is ripe with activities to fill your days on shore. Discover one of the many national and state parks, such as Glacier Bay National Park, a 25-million-acre World Heritage Site. Go on a kayak tour through the Bay or take in the abundance of birds and wildlife. Step back into an older era and go panning for gold in Juneau or Fairbanks. Or, soak up some of the 49th state's culture during a visit to the Anchorage Museum, Baranov Museum or Alaska Native Heritage Center. For those interested in marine life, the $56-million Alaska Sealife Center, located in Seward, combines research, education and rehabilitation for injured marine animals. Hold sea anemones and starfish, or watch seals frolic in the water. Alaska is home to many unique animals, visible from the ship and on expeditions on land. Whale-watching is a must, and even the most casual fisherman will enjoy a trout fishing excursion.

Popular Alaska Cruise Ports

  • Anchorage: Alaska's largest city, Anchorage is known for its culture and trails. Visit the Alaska Native Heritage Center to see traditional crafts, dances and replicas of native dwellings, or hike along the more than-100 miles of city paths.
  • Juneau: Alaska's capital - one of the most beautiful in the nation - is surrounded by Mt. Juneau and Mt. Roberts. Just steps from the port you can find some of Juneau's main attractions along historic South Franklin Street.
  • Sitka: Home to around 9,000 residents, Sitka is a small town brimming with remnants of its Russian heritage, such as the Saint Michael's Russian Orthodox Cathedral. You can visit the Alaska Raptor Center and Fortress of the Bear to see more incredible wildlife.

When is the Best Time to Go to Alaska?

Alaska's cruise season begins in May and ends in September. During the rest of the year, weather conditions can be harsh, with cold, wet and short days. The summer months, however, offer comfortable average temperatures between 55 and 75 degrees Fahrenheit, as well as glacier views and snow-capped peaks on display year round. Maximizing time is easy during these months: the longest day of the year can have as many as 22 hours of daylight in June!
