Alaska

CRUISE TO

When it comes to Alaska, usually the first thing that comes to mind is snow, ice and rugged, uninhabitable terrain. And that is definitely the case, especially during the 49th state's winter months. However, during the summer months, Alaska provides some of the most magnificent views and rare opportunities to experience nature in all of its amazing glory. From breathtaking views of the Northern Lights to the amazing ocean performances put on by Earth's largest mammals, Alaska is a top destination on any traveler's bucket list. And rightfully so. 

Instead of limiting yourself to one location, a cruise to Alaska provides the opportunity to visit multiple locations with luxurious accommodations and the opportunity for once-in-a-lifetime excursions -- without having to fork over your life savings. Crossing this destination off your bucket list is a lot easier than you might think.

WHEN'S THE BEST TIME TO CRUISE TO ALASKA?

Most major cruise lines offer cruises to Alaska from May to September. June and July are the best months if your goal is whale-watching, and September is the best opportunity for the shorter days (and a better opportunity to catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights). 

WHICH CRUISE LINE OFFERS THE BEST EXPERIENCE?

The "best cruise" is all a matter of personal preference. Looking for value without sacrificing amenities? Looking for a first-class experience with all the bells and whistles? Check out some of this summer's opportunities below.
