(Note: This blog, originally published in December 2020, has been slightly modified due to cruise line scheduling changes.)
This month we have been doing a massive focus on Alaska. Not only are we extremely passionate about the state itself, but we also have a reason why we are so excited to learn more about Alaska! We are heading on a cruise later in 2021 to the beautiful Alaskan Frontier. So we have been embracing our mantra of this season “Dream Now, Travel Later.” So let's dream of heading to Alaska!
We want to tell you about six significant reasons you should cruise to The Last Frontier sooner rather than later.
Sailing in Alaska extends from the middle of May to mid-September. During these months, you won't likely see a shortage of cruise line options. Choose to go on a luxury or expedition-style cruise or maybe something a little more unique.
Alaska is desirable to people of all ages and tends to be high up on many bucket lists. Many families come here each year to enjoy the beauty of the great state and the broad scope of activities and events.
The wildlife is absolutely out of this world. When traveling to Alaska by cruise ship, don't be surprised if you spot bear hunting for fish, whales, eagles, and several other beautiful creatures.
Dare to go dog sledding? You may have to take a helicopter ride to get into the mountains first, but this could be one thrilling adventure! Best of all, you get to hang with sweet huskies all day. (Dry mushing with an Iditarod champion on land is also an amazing option.)
Go on a land tour before or after your cruise. Hike through the Denali National Park or the Kenai River Valley.
Sadly, Alaska won't be as charming as it is now, forever. Right now, you can see the nation in all of its iconic glory. From lush forests to enormous glaciers, there is so much to admire while we can!
Alaska truly is one of the most magical places on Earth, and it's right here in the United States. If you, like almost everyone else, have "visit Alaska" on your bucket list, what are you waiting for?
There's no better way to visit the state than by ship, and we have the most incredible cruise experience planned for August 2021! We have designed an itinerary around a one-week Alaska Glacier Experience cruise on Royal Caribbean's Serenade of the Seas departing on August 30, 2021 out of Seattle, Washington (round trip cruising). We encourage travelers to take a full day before the cruise to enjoy Seattle as part of your vacation without any rushing.
Joining us on this one-of-a-kind vacation will undoubtedly bring you memories that last a lifetime. We would love to cruise with you, so if you are interested check out the itinerary here and please don’t hesitate to reach out to our team!
