Discover Alaska

Explore the unspoiled and pristine wilderness of Alaska.

Whether by sea cruise or by land, Alaska's natural beauty will leave you both amazed and inspired.

By sea, you can catch a glimpse of the picturesque coastlines, stunning glacial formations, and once in a lifetime sights such as humpbacks breaching the frigid waters in Prince William Sound. Travel through the Inside Passage and prepare to be captivated at every turn by the beauty that makes Alaska one of the top cruising destinations in the world.

Land tours provide the perfect opportunity to get an inside look at the incredible cultural legacy of Alaska, from the Totem Heritage Center in Ketchikan to the Last Chance Mining Museum in Juneau. Visit Anchorage, the state's most populated city, and experience the wild side of Alaska at the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center, or take an excursion to Redoubt Bay to witness bears in their natural habitats.

Explore the unspoiled and pristine wilderness of Alaska.


Anchorage, the largest city in Alaska, certainly has multiple personalities. Just outside the cruise port you will find rows of touristy shops and restaurants, but head beyond there to experience the 'real' Anchorage, filled with urban-style coffee shops, brewpubs, and local galleries. The city is great for outdoorsy people who enjoy activities such as cycling and hiking.

Glacier Bay

Glacier Bay is one of the most picturesque places you will experience on an Alaskan cruise through the inside passage. With photo-ops as far as the eye can see, you will pass constantly-changing glaciers, fjords, and plenty of Alaskan wildlife.


Juneau is a very unique capital city in that itis the only state capital with no roads leading into or out of the city. In Juneau, you can check out the many museums and learn about the history of mining in the area, which really put this city on the map. There are also a wide variety of shore excursions in Juneau, from whale watching, glacier viewing, or visiting a local salmon hatchery, to taking a ride up the Mount Roberts Tramway to the 1,800 foot-high station for hiking and a bite to eat at a cafe with a view!


Ketchikan holds the world's largest collection of Northwest totems, be sure to pick up a tiny replica at one of the local souvenir shops! Although Ketchikan gets more rain than any other city in Alaska, it doesn't stop tourists from enjoying outdoor activities such as hiking or kayaking in the Misty Fjords.


For most cruisers, Seward acts as the port of embarkation or disembarkation. Don't let that fool you, however! There are plenty of things to do and see in this coastal town, which is located 125 miles south of anchorage, in Resurrection Bay. Seward is the gateway to the Kenai Fjords National Park, where you can kayak and see majestic Alaskan wildlife in their natural habitat. It is also the start of the famous Iditarod dogsled race. Go ahead, join in a fun, family-friendly dog sledding adventure and learn about the history of the race!
