Alaska is regarded as one of the most scenic cruising regions on earth, and with good reason. With towering mountain ranges, crystalline glaciers and abundant wildlife you’ll fill up your camera memory in no time! Touring before or after your Alaskan cruise provides the opportunity to take in the Denali National Park, visit Victoria and the stunning Butchart Gardens, or explore the Rockies.
Inside Passage cruises generally start and end in Vancouver, Seattle or San Francisco and combine visits to a variety of the ports in the Inside Passage such as Juneau, Ketchikan, Skagway and Sitka with scenic cruising to view some of the region’s Glaciers.
Inside Passage cruises are in protected waters so irrespective of weather, cruise conditions are usually smooth. Cruises from Vancouver to Anchorage allow passengers to extend their vacation and visit some of the key attractions of the State including Kodiak Island, Denali National Park and more.
