Alaska Bound?
You'll likely come across puffins, whales, otters, bears, glaciers, and fjords. But to get the most of your Alaska visit you have to get off the ship, and explore more. Lots more! Consider an action-packed Alaska cruise that lets you explore the wilderness not only by ship, but also by rail, by kayak, sea plane and dogsled. We call them Hi-Energy Alaska Land & Sea Adventures. Everything from the mild to the wild. Alaska is at the top of many a travelers' bucket list, but how many cruises can truly get you up close to the state's natural wonders?

Make the Last Frontier Your First Choice
Now is the time to reserve your preferred accommodations on a seven day or longer voyage to Alaska. Spend next summer gazing toward the heavens spotting majestic birds soaring across the sky. Make your way to the rugged volcanic coastline of Sitka’s Kruzof Island to get an up-close look at puffins. Or, take a bicycle ride through the rainforest along the Chilkoot trailhead, where eagles are most often in view.

Relax, be Inspired by Alaska's Wonders and Wildlife

With so many options to relax, rejuvenate and enrich yourself, it's easy to understand why some many people will have taken an Alaska cruise by the end of 2020. Our Certified Alaska Cruise Travel Experts© can help you and your special someone, ( your family too!) cruise and/or tour Alaska in style. The exhilaration of shared discovery while traveling often spills over into warmer feelings in a relationship. There's never been a better time to get away with that special someone ( or more than one ) on an Alaska Discovery  Explorer Cruise©.   Envision a misty woodland teeming with dark rustic colors and active wildlife. Picture a white and blue maze of glacial formations in front of a jagged mountain range. Imagine listening to the constant rush of waterfalls while taking a deep breath of crisp, cool air. Rekindle your romance and renew that relationship and come back new. Enjoy some quality time together while making memories to last a lifetime.

An Opportunity for Real Adventure.

An Alaskan vacation is a must for the seasoned or first-time cruise traveler. Where else can you see amazing wildlife like moose, bears, and eagles in a virtually pristine wilderness? Combine flightseeing with cocktails beside a rushing river. Or treat yourself to a night at a fabulous lodge after climbing America's tallest peak, and traveling in comfort and style doesn't mean you have to sacrifice the opportunity for real adventure.

Alaska's Big 3!
Glaciers
Imagine sailing past towering peaks of snowy white glaciers, miles wide. Only the sounds of wind and seagulls disturb the silence. Then a massive crackling and a thunderous roar echo across the pristine bay. The ice-scape rumbles and quakes as the glacier splinters and calves, sending ice and snow cascading into the sea. There's no spectacle in the world that surpasses these towering frozen masses and best displays the fierce majesty of the region.
Wildlife
Eagles nesting in treetops. Moose grazing through lush meadows surrounded by snow-capped mountain ranges. A breaching whale crashing down into the tranquil sea. On an Alaska vacation, it's not uncommon for you to see all of these animals and more, such as Denali National Park's Big 5: brown bears, wolves, moose, Dall sheep and caribou. You'll also have plenty of chances to enjoy the sights of humpback, beluga and orca whales, along with harbor seals, sea lions and sea otters frolicking in the water.

Majestic Mountains
Take a moment to pause and gaze up. Massive, eternally snow-capped mountains rise majestically against the bright blue sky, which darkens to a majestic indigo at twilight. Wild, untamed and exquisitely unique, this astounding landscape dwarfs your wildest imagination. No other place offers such untouched beauty. Home to almost 3,000 peaks and Denali, North America's tallest mountain, Alaska's summits are a feast for your eyes. And one you'll never forget.

Guest Comments & Testimonials

 

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. Thanks for everything."


"Pat and I returned from an 11 day trip to Alaska. Truly The Last Frontier. We had the pleasure of traveling with 6 of our very dear and close friends, Mike & Susie, Ron & Rachel and Craig & Diane. We saw incredible scenery, moose, mountain sheep and goats, humpback whales, dolphins, and a wolf. We examined Denali (aka Mt. McKinley ) up close and personal in a small airplane. We watched in awe the calving of the immense glaciers in Glacier Bay. The weather was absolutely beautiful."


"Our group wanted to thank you for all your attention and follow-up provided to us on our Princess Cruisetour of Alaska. Everything from the ship cabins, to the hotel accommodations, logistics, land tours and shore excursions were all very well prepared. Our group of 10 all expressed gratitude for your assistance in helping us select the best Alaska excursions and keeping us all informed. I learned you contacted each couple individually and provided continuance help and guidance. Everyone was very pleased with your periodic updates. You and your company have earned the highest recommendation and we look forward to calling you for our future vacation plans"

"The weather this week was incredible, 70 and sunny. Never saw a bit of rain...but, lots of whales, eagles, porpoise, bear, moose etc."

"What can I say. We felt like we were on a National Geographic cruise. Eagles, whales, sea lions, moose, bear and caribou; we saw them all. We had the best weather imaginable too. Both days at McKinley were cloudless! We saw the whole mountain range morning, noon and night and night and night!  The position of our room was great, 11th floor mid ship. We loved it."


"I just wanted to thank you for all your help. Packer Expeditions was excellent and I would highly recommend them again for anyone looking to do a glacier hike. Also, we ended up being upgraded to an outside cabin...It was a truly welcome surprise to say the least. It made all the difference in the world both having a window (even though it was an obstructed view) and having a larger cabin. Alaska was totally awesome and we thoroughly enjoyed the land tours. All the coach drivers and tour folks were very knowledgeable and helpful. So next time we are looking for a cruise I will be in touch! Thanks again, Ann."

"Hi Marty! When I originally started to research cruises and Travel Agents to help with the process, I was overwhelmed (Let's face it, sometimes the internet can be a good thing and sometimes it can be a bad thing).  I am so happy that I can across your website. I sure didn't expect the response that I received from our family and friends when I started planning the cruise, and you were there every step of the way putting up with my cabin changes, adding new guests at the last moment, and removing guests in some cases, too! You were amazing and I know for a fact that you are responsible for our worry-free and amazing journey. Everyone that joined us on the cruise was extremely impressed at how well the whole thing fell together with little trouble on their parts. Again I can not thank you enough, and don't forget that we will be planning another one !"

▷▷ Special edition! We think you've earned it: Spend Summer in Alaska. One very cool place. One hot destination!

You Can A-Fjord These Adventures
Watch for wildlife as you cruise through enchanting fjords, narrow inlets surrounded by massive glacial walls. At places like Misty Fjords or Kenai Fjords, you'll sail across the edge of where mountains, volcanic formations and turquoise waters converge. Be sure to snap a photo while you're there.

Take A Hike

Take a hike with great naturalist guides while visiting Talkeetna and Denali Alaska. Stretch you legs on trails from easy to epic. See Denali ( Mt. McKinley ) without national park crowds and all day bus tours. Owners Howard and Noelle Carbone have shared the wonders of Denali with Alaska's visitors since starting the family business in 1993. Princess guests staying at the Mt. McKinley Princess Lodge can take the Byers Lake Nature Walk and Denali Wilderness Hike. Royal Caribbean and Celebrity guests staying at the Talkeetna Alaskan Lodge can take the Talkeetna Lakes Hike. Learn More

Glacier Sight-Soaring
Generally, Alaska glaciers are viewed from one angle, so you can see that they are massive, but flightseeing - taking a small, low-flying plane over the landscape for a true bird's-eye view - allows you to see just how vast these rivers of ice can be. Take up an excursion out of Misty Fjord in Ketchikan, or soar above the massive Denali mountain with a Talkeetna adventure tour group. You may even get the chance to climb one of these icy giants. 

Six Million Acres Of Discovery
Towering high in the center of the Alaska Range is the Denali, North America's tallest peak at 20,310 feet. Central to the cultural heritage of the native peoples who have lived here for thousands of years, the giant mountain is the ultimate symbol of the Alaskan wild. Denali National Park remains a wild kingdom, where animals large and small, roam free. View Dall sheep, wolves, caribou, moose and the mighty grizzly bear among many. And come summer, they are joined by more than 160 species of migratory birds.

Just about every cruise line offers trip insurance, however their rates and policy benefits may not meet your specific needs. Get quotes from a third-party company like Travel Guard and compare that with the cruise line offers. You may not only save money, but the policy benefits may be better.
