We can’t tell you how many times over the last couple of years we have been asked “Are you going to put together a cruise to ALASKA? If so, count us in”.
After a good deal of research we believe we have been able to formulate the perfect Alaskan Cruise aboard Norwegian Cruise Lines World class “NORWEGIAN SPIRIT“.
If you’re looking for a cruise vacation that’s a little bit out of the way and a little bit out of the ordinary, make going on an Alaskan cruise your first choice! Alaska is a natural wonder through and through, but the coastal panhandle region Norwegian sails to is perhaps the most stunning. On an Alaska cruise, you’ll find not only quaint towns and scenic harbor vistas but the best of nature — including fjords, wildlife and mountains galore.

Explore the wilds of Alaska for 11 days on this roundtrip cruise from Seattle. At 12 miles in length, Mendenhall Glacier is the big attraction in Juneau. But there’s also dog sledding adventures, glacier treks, float plane tours over the icefields and nature galore. You’ll also explore Alaska’s oldest city, Sitka, where wilderness and culture live in perfect harmony. This once-thriving fur port boasts Russian, Tlingit and American influences. Visit the raptor centers, shop for Russian lacquer boxes and see Michael’s Cathedral with its beautiful onion dome. Before or after your cruise, Seattle has much to offer visitors. A favorite is the Chihuly Glass Museum and Garden, where Dale Chihuly displays his jaw-dropping masterpieces. Head to the top of the Space Needle for views of Mount Rainier and the city.
Seattle sits on the slip of land between Puget Sound and Lake Washington, with the Olympic and Cascade Mountains serving as a dramatic backdrop for this oh-so cosmopolitan city. Soar up the futuristic Space Needle and experience the views atop this stunning landmark created for the 1962 World’s Fair.
Sitka is a charming island community surrounded with stunning mountain and seaside panoramic views. The vast and rich wildlife boasts sightings of whales, brown bears, deers, sea otters, and various birds flock here. This destination offers superb fishing, and plentiful historical attractions
Cruise Hubbard Glacier
Get up close and personal with the gigantic Hubbard Glacier, North America’s largest tidewater glacier. It’s 1350 square miles of blue ice and one of the most active in Alaska.
Juneau has been called “Alaska’s peak experience,” certainly due in part to its unparalleled glacier viewing from such places as Tracy Arm Fjord, the Juneau Icefields and Glacier Bay National Park. Kayak up one of the area’s many protected waterways, go flightseeing, tour historic downtown or try your hand at panning for gold. The majestic Mendenhall Glacier lies nearly 12 miles outside Juneau, a treck worthwhile.
In a single year from 1896 to 1897, this remote town along the Inside Passage grew from a few tents to a city of 20,000 gold seekers. Today, travelers come in search of other riches – to experience yesteryear along Skagway’s charming boardwalk lined with buildings that replicate those Gold Rush days.
Glacier Bay (Cruising)
Sail to Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve, a United Nations World Heritage Site. Comprised of 3.3 million acres of natural wonders, it is home to magnificent glaciers, snow-capped mountains and abundant birds and wildlife. Take an Alaska cruise to experience the magnificent glaciers and wildlife at the Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve.
Icy Strait Point, Alaska
Venture “where the north wind doesn’t blow.” Known for this famous saying, Icy Strait Point is the ideal landing spot for adventurers seeking a new experience. Breathtaking and exciting, Icy Strait Point truly takes you where the wild things are. It’s one of the few places in the world where wildlife outnumbers the human population. A trip here certainly satisfies your taste for adventure. Take a cruise from Icy Strait Point and enjoy Alaska’s awe-inspiring scenery and the many excursion options that Norwegian Cruise Line has to offer.
Its Tlingit Indian name, Kach Khanna, means “spread wings of the eagle.” Chances are you’ll see one of these magnificent birds perched atop a Sitka tree. Thanks to its abundant rainfall, Ketchikan is surrounded by some of the world’s most lush wilderness.
Victoria, British Columbia
Roam the spacious lawns of stunning Butchart Gardens with its exotic flora, unusual topiary and exquisite fountains. Explore historic Bastion Square, the treasures of Chinatown and the many sights and sounds to be found along the boardwalk of the Inner Harbor.
Vancouver, British Columbia
Positioned between the snow-dusted North Shore Mountains and the rich, blue waters of the Pacific Ocean, Vancouver blends big-city sophistication with small-town charm. Don’t miss Queen Elizabeth Park – a 130-acre civic arboretum accented with sculptures by modern artist Henry Moore.
