Alaska’s vast, wild and natural beauty can take days or weeks to explore, which is why so many travelers opt for a cruise. Exploring Alaska by cruise ship allows passengers a full view of the territory with expertly organized land excursions.


Explore Anchorage and Denali by land and cruise Glacier Bay from Vancouver onboard Norwegian Cruise Line. The 12-day cruise visits Alaskan Wildlife Conservations, Denali National Park and a local Iditarod sled dog kennel. Experience the incredible landscape and quintessentially Alaskan activities along the journey before heading back to the comforts of the ship.

Traverse Alaska’s coastal wilderness on one of Lindlad Expeditions’ many excursions. Experience waterfalls and wildlife sightings including bears, whales and seals. The modest ship, accommodating 62 guests, provides an intimate experience with the incredible Alaskan landscape, and offers expert guidance by riverboat and foot, further exploring the incredible coast.


Embark on a Princess Cruises cruise inside the glacier passage and explore Juneau, College Fjord and Ketchikan. Travelers choose north or southbound tracks, showcasing the incredible glaciers and landscape of Alaska and British Columbia.

Cruise to Skagway, Alaska, on board Carnival Cruise Line. Set sail where gold hunters and pioneers explored more than a century ago. Hop off and explore the historic city with a knowledgeable guide. Get a lay of the land while enjoy kayaking, hiking and riding along the mountains in an antique train before heading back on the open waters.


All of Holland America’s cruise lines steer passengers through sights such as Tracy Arm, Hubbard Glacier and Glacier Bay for good reason. On any Alaskan cruise by Holland, passengers enjoy history, incredible vistas, wildlife and offbeat itineraries. Some cruises offer culinary excursions complete with cooking lessons, whale watching and endless exploration through the state’s unending beauty.


Royal Caribbean and Alaskan cruises may not sound like a likely pair, but, in fact, the cruise line offers a seven-night northbound adventure from Vancouver, British Colombia, to Alaska and the Hubbard Glacier. Witness the world’s largest coastal rainforest along the inside passage and the incredible glacier landscape of Juneau, before visiting Gold Creek.
