Alaska is one of the last true frontiers in the world and a Cruise, or land tour-cruise is one of the few ways to view and experience this wonderland.
Glacier Bay National Park can be easily traversed by ship, but there are few roads into this wilderness, let alone ones that can give you the stunning vista of any of the several monumental glaciers visited by cruise ships on a daily basis.
The excursions available through cruises offer a wide array of sites, sounds and flavors that showcase the wildlife, wilderness and rugged beauty of Alaska like nothing else can.
With that in mind, here are a few reasons you should book your Alaska Cruise.
5. Whales and Wildlife -The wildlife viewing in Alaska is truly remarkable. Whales and other sea life, Eagles and Grizzly Bears can easily be seen from the ship itself, and and number of bus or boat tours will force your eyes wide as you find yourself holding your breath, wishing the moment would last. Be sure to take your camera and keep it handy!
6. No Age Restrictions! Alaska Cruises are for everyone. More and more ships are becoming more family orientated with lots of options for the young, and the young at heart!
7. Changing Environment – Regardless of your stance on climate change, the facts point to a changing environment in this area as the Glaciers are shrinking and several species are having a hard time coping with it. What can be seen today may not be there tomorrow.
