Royal Caribbean Cruises

In Alaska Glacier Views Are Just The Tip Of The Iceberg
The rugged southeastern coast represents some of nature's best work. The intricate waterways of the Inside Passage. The high cliffs of Misty Fjords. The deep bays that welcome whales every summer. Where life is centered around the water, a cruise is the ideal choice. But a journey into the interior reveals so much more. Mighty rivers fed by massive glaciers. The vast taiga forests and rolling tundra of Denali National Park, and towns where moose stroll the streets. With a Royal Caribbean Cruise tour, you enjoy both. By combining a seven-night sailing along the southeastern coastline of Alaska with a small-group tour, it's a complete Alaska adventure. If you're going the distance, discover the best of Alaska by land and sea.

Guest Comments

On Princess Cruises

" 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." .- Larry Siedler

"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." -Walt Stout
