Ever considered taking an Alaskan cruise?


Alaskan Cruises – Beautiful Getaways

Alaskan cruises are a great way to enjoy the pampering of a cruise with the rugged beauty of one of the worlds most untamed places. Here are just a few reasons why.


Nothing is easier than a cruise. No matter where you are, a cruise is the pinnacle of stress free vacationing. With a cruise, it’s all included. You don’t have to worry about lodging, dining, or even entertainment. All you do is pack and go. It’s a great way to spend a vacation, because we want to decompress, not take a worry-filled trip.

Beauty of the Landscape

Alaska is one of the most beautiful places in North America. It has a rugged beauty that you just can’t find anywhere else. From the fjords to the rustic towns to the amazing wildlife, Alaska is a fantastic, beautiful gem. Alaskan cruises are the best way to experience this beauty because they have scheduled ports, which means you don’t have to worry about seeing the best places. These companies want you to cruise with them again, after all!

Friends of ours did a Disney Alaska cruise last year and they couldn’t say enough about it actually. Keep in mind though that any cruise to Alaska means that your typical swimming pools and outdoor relaxation done on a warm weather style cruise is not really available. I mean the layout of the ship is the same basically but the outdoor time will be limited due to the temperatures. So find ways to stay busy indoors.

Alaska cruises generally range from $1,000.00 to $6,000.00 per person, depending on which line you use and how much you’re willing to spend. Although $6,000.00 is a lot, there are many quality cruise lines that cost far less, especially if you don’t opt for balcony rooms. This makes Alaska cruises highly affordable. At $1000.00 per person for a one week adventure you would definitely get your value out of this kind of trip. Of course flights can add up depending on where you are coming from. Time it right and book well in advance and you could afford it. If you want to see Alaska there’s really no better way to do this.

Family Time

If you have a family, an Alaskan cruise is an ideal choice for the ease and beauty that I already mentioned. They’re also a great choice for the amount of family time you’ll be afforded. When you cruise, everything is taken care of, which means you can devote all of your time to enjoying the rustic beauty of Alaska and connecting with your family. Service is almost always amazing on cruise ships. We love family cruises for this very reason. Cruise ship service is incredible and cruising can be a very affordable means of travel. Family time one of the biggest reasons we go on vacation.
