Within this expanse lie Denali, North America’s tallest mountain that rises more than 20,000 feet, and millions of acres of nationally protected forests, preserves and parks - including the iconic Glacier Bay National Park.

Wolf, Moose, Caribou, Eagles, Whales and Bear!
" Our trip was excellent. The room, with the upgrades, was amazing! We saw many eagles (bald and golden), one bear, many whales, including one breach, seals, one bear, one wolf, moose and caribou, and many smaller animals.. If we travelled during salmon run, we probably would have seen more bear and eagles. The scenery is to die for, the vistas spectacular. The ship was great; service, food, etc were all great.

glaciers

 

On a vacation full of adventure, one of the greatest highlights is viewing glaciers from the comfort of your ship. Every  voyage features at least one day viewing glaciers, and many have two scenic days, including Glacier Bay National Park. With park rangers providing insights into how these natural wonders are formed, your perspective is beyond compare. Enjoy open views on deck or from the privacy of your own balcony and, if the timing is right, marvel over the spectacle of ice chunks shearing off a glacier crashing into the waters below with a thunderous roar. Exciting excursions in port bring you even closer to glaciers as you hike, ride a dog sled or soar over the ice in a helicopter

wildlife


A camera, a pair of binoculars and a sense of curiosity are all you need to
get the most out of your adventures in Alaska. From the waters to the land, this scenic backdrop is teeming with wildlife. The ship deck or your balcony are perfect spaces to spot whales breaching out at sea. An excursion through Tongass National Forest reveals bald eagles flying overhead and black bears feeding on salmon from rushing streams. Choose a cruisetour that includes a visit to Denali National Park, the 6-million-acre home to the Big Five: grizzly bears, moose, wolves, Dall sheep and caribou.


mountains


Anchored by immense mountains, Alaska is practically defined by its towering peaks. See them from every angle as you sail past rugged shores or travel on land in a glass-domed rail car. Incredibly, 12 of the 13 highest summits in the U.S. are located in Alaska — all dominated by Denali, North America’s tallest peak at 20,310 feet. Denali National Park is home to the tallest mountain in North America, Denali at 20,310 feet, as well as over six million acres of diverse wilderness. This includes the famous Big Five - grizzly bears, moose, wolves, Dall sheep and caribou. With only one park road, nature exists as it has for thousands of years, and your visit offers a glimpse into an era that most can’t imagine, even in their wildest dreams. The Great Room at Mt. McKinley Princess Wilderness Lodge ® is an ideal place to view the Alaska Range, and to learn more, you can attend our “Meet the Mountain Climbers” presentations at the lodge’s Hudson Theater

How To See The Very Best Of Alaska

Combined with a Voyage of the Glaciers cruise, guests can experience Alaska’s top-two attractions - Glacier Bay National Park and Denali National Park - Choose this ultimate 17 day adventure or if you don't have that much time to explore Alaska, choose from 24 more cruisetour itineraries, ranging from three to 10 nights on land, before or after the cruise.



Here are our top-10 reasons to see the very best of Alaska with Princess:

Princess is #1 in Alaska!
1. Every cruise features at least one glacier-viewing experience - Glacier Bay National Park, College Fjord, Hubbard Glacier, Endicott Arm and Dawes Glacier or Tracy Arm Fjord.
2. Princess takes more guests to Glacier Bay National Park than any other cruise line. With 84 calls to Glacier Bay in 2023, 74 percent of the cruise line’s itineraries to Alaska feature this UNESCO World Heritage Site.
3. Cruises feature the marquee ports of Juneau, Ketchikan and Skagway with a “More Ashore” late-night call in Juneau on all northbound Voyage of the Glaciers and seven-day Inside Passage voyages.
4. Onboard and ashore, the award-winning “North to Alaska" enrichment program brings together local personalities, culture and Alaska seafood to immerse guests in the history and traditions of The Last Frontier. From savoring fresh Alaska seafood to meeting locals, the program allows guests to see, feel and taste the best of the Great Land.
5. A significant part of the guest services experience includes the cruise line’s effortless and personalized Princess MedallionClass vacation. All six cruise ships sailing to Alaska in 2023 offers personalization that simplifies the guest experience and delivers next-level service.
6. Shore excursions abound. From a lumberjack show, dog sledding on a glacier, the historic White Pass Scenic Railway, flightseeing adventures and plenty of tours with wildlife viewing – whales, bears and more – guests can choose from more than 150 tours.

7. Exclusive to Princess, Cook My Catch offers a true sea-to-seat experience. Guests have the chance to reel in a fish during a fishing excursion and have chefs cook it for their dinner that night.
8. Only Princess offers custom-built, exclusive wilderness lodges on the doorsteps of legendary national parks.

9. Back by popular demand, the 17-night Princess Ultimate Alaska Connoisseur Cruisetour features 10 nights on land that includes two nights at each of the five Princess Wilderness Lodges and visits five national parks.
10. Princess offers exclusive Direct-to-the Wilderness rail service that takes guests from the ship through the heart of Alaska with breathtaking scenery to the Denali-based wilderness lodges for more time to explore the interior of this vast state.
 

....And every cruisetour itinerary includes Denali National Park, a picturesque six million acres, home to North America’s tallest peak.

 

 

Why Is Alaska So Popular Today?

From our Blog...

What destination do families cruising for the first time and seasoned travelers like most? Caribbean, you say? Oh, think again. When it comes to travel, they both love to take a land & sea vacation [aka a cruisetour] to The Great Land of Alaska. In our 20-plus years of working with couples, families and groups to Alaska, the amount of travelers we take on cruise and land vacations has grown over 15% every year. It continues to grow organically, from social media and word of mouth. So says Raye Trencher, Alaska Destination Specialist, at Alaska Cruise Advisors, presented by Cruise Direct Online. She further adds: " For most people Alaska remains their new destination, unlike the Caribbean where most people have been there multiple times."

 

One of the Biggest Reasons People Visit
Glaciers feel alive. They groan, creak and shudder on their march to the sea, punctuated by the booms and crashes of "white thunder" — a sound that echoes across the water when ice calves into the ocean below. On an Alaska cruise, let us show you Glacier Bay National Park — a UNESCO World Heritage Site — Endicott Arm & Dawes Glacier, College Fjord or Hubbard Glacier.

Untamed, Just like Alaska
Alaska is home to a rich array of wildlife, from the famous Big Five animals that live in Denali National Park — grizzly bears, wolves, moose, Dall sheep and caribou — to bald eagles and humpback whales that migrate through the Inside Passage. On a cruise to Alaska, live a nature lover's dream in the land where guests can catch postcard-worthy sights.

National Treasures
With national parks and four of North America’s tallest mountains, Alaska’s wilderness has been preserved for generations. Denali National Park is larger than Vermont and home to the highest peak on the continent. Meanwhile, Glacier Bay National Park has over 2,000 square miles of glacial coverage. Along with Wrangell-St. Elias and Kenai Fjords, a world of natural wonders awaits on an Alaska cruise or cruisetour.


One of the reasons Alaska is so popular today is that you can marvel at sunlight at midnight and close-ups of whales, eagles and caribou. You can delight in Denali's (formerly known as Mt. McKinley ) majesty and meadows carpeted with wildflowers. Amid unsurpassed grandeur and serenity, the true wilderness of Denali is calling. Catch sight of a

 humpback whale or wolf pups frolicking in the snow. Alaska is as rustic and romantic as one could ever imagine.

 



Alaska: "Whales, Wonders and Wilderness"

Sailing into ports along the Inside Passage, you'll get a glimpse into the welcoming personality of the Great Land, and a taste of the fascinating gold rush history that has left its mark on the region's streets, saloons and storefronts. These are serene waters, where one moment you can be sailing through a wide bay of barrier islands and the next you're cruising through a narrow waterway flanked by towering forested walls. That's the splendid spectacle of the Inside Passage - the scenery is constantly changing, from picturesque shores to friendly coastal towns. Stretching from Puget Sound, Washington, through the British Columbia coast and into the Gulf of Alaska, the Inside Passage includes more than 1,000 islands, seemingly endless shore line and thousands of idyllic coves and bays. Sailing from Seattle, San Francisco, or between Whittier and Vancouver, you'll marvel at the breathtaking scenery and encounter ports like Gold Rush-era Skagway and Ketchikan, the capital city of Juneau and British-flavored Victoria. These are places where you can visit a Native village, learn about the triumphs and tragedies of Alaska's Gold Rush heyday or go dog sledding with a real musher. The Inside Passage has stories to tell that will give you a greater understanding of the culture, history and lifestyle of the Great Land.

In Alaska you'll find Fjords carved by mighty glaciers stretch toward white-capped mountains. Salmon leaping up from the rivers and straight into the mouths of waiting bears. Playful pods of whales and dolphins swim through shimmering waters, dog-sledding and the northern lights, and rich emerald forests reach into impossibly blue skies. Cruising Alaska will transform your view of the world as you experience the Great Land's vast wilderness, enduring historic Gold Rush towns and communities.

"Indeed Alaska is the perfect adventure , from the mild to the wild, there is something exciting to do for everyone."

It's easy to understand why the multiple choices for adventure in Alaska are perfect for families, couples, friends and family groups seeking to check off one more item on their bucket list and make once-in-a-life time memories.

Often, visiting Alaska has as much to do with what people may feel as with what they will see. There is a mystique that surrounds Alaska. To some it represents a dream, a trip of a life time, a life altering event, a chance to reach out and touch something inside themselves that is wild and beautiful like they imagine Alaska to be. Our job is to put that dream - or as much as possible of it - within reach to you. Alaskan cruising is affordable, only the memories are priceless! When it comes to planning your trip, Alaskan Cruises & Land and Sea Vacations are more economical than you might think. With a wide range of options and choices, there's a cruise or cruisetour to suit most any budget.

To fully experience Alaska, you'll want to discover its interior from Anchorage to Fairbanks with Denali National Park in between. On an Alaska cruise, you'll journey along the southeast coastline of Alaska, experiencing its glaciers, nature's ever-changing and fragile masterpieces. But on an Alaska Land & Sea Vacation you'll uncover so much more, by combining a seven-night Alaska sailing with a small-group tour into its magnificent inland destinations. Stay in the finest available lodges and embark on remote roads and railways in deluxe transportation. Visit Glacier Bay National Park, and stay a minimum two nights in or near Denali National Park and take the Tundra Wilderness Tour through Denali. And, if you are traveling south of Anchorage, the Kenai Fjord National Park boat tour is a must.

Shore & Land Excursions beyond your port of call offer unique one of a kind fun and adventure.
Consider a private whale-watching excursion or a unique dog-sled experience; or helicopter land directly on a glacier, or go fishing on remote mountain lake. Perhaps taking the White Pass and Yukon train, built in 1898 during the Klondike Gold Rush. The train is a narrow-gauge railroad linking the port of Skagway, Alaska, with Whitehorse, the capital of Yukon. On the train you can experience the breathtaking panorama of mountains, glaciers, gorges, waterfalls, tunnels, trestles and historic sites from the comfort of vintage passenger coaches. Choose kayaking ,trekking, panning for gold or take a gentle raft ride to view hundred's of eagles.
Alaska shore excursions are all adventure!

 

Alaska is Adventurous! Come explore some of the top active / adventure Alaska destinations, resorts, wilderness lodges and activities.

Alaska Cruise Advisors has you covered - whether it's kayaking, hiking, cycling, helicopter glacier landing, flightseeing, fishing remote lakes, or zip lining through Alaska's mountains, we know where to have fun!

Did you know? Denali creates its own weather. So, Mt. Denali ( formally named Mt. McKinley ) may not be visible during your trip. So anyone who promises you'll see it, just has not "been there and done that".
