Alaskan Cruises- A Popular Trend for Cruising

February 25th, 2013 janicee-admin

Cruises are the perfect vacation, especially for those of you who are looking for an adventure, love to visit multiple locations, and don’t mind the motion of the boat. From the Caribbean, to the Mediterranean, the South Pacific, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, to Alaska, the options for a cruise are endless.


While each cruise destination offers its own advantages and opportunities for adventure, cruises and Cruisetours to Alaska have become increasingly popular in the last few years. In an article from the Miami Herald, the passenger count on cruises in 2013 is expected to exceed one million, for the first time since 2009. A drawback to the increased interest is the lack of “rock-bottom deals” seen in the past few years. Not unlike other industries, as demand increases, so do prices.


The major cruise lines, including Princess Cruises and Holland America will both have seven ships sailing the Alaskan seas. In fact, according to the article, “Princess will deploy the larger and recently remodeled Grand Princess to its Alaska sailings from San Francisco, replacing the Sea Princess.” This year, Princess Cruise line will run 121 sailings in Alaska, with ships departing from San Francisco, Vancouver, Whittier and Seattle.


Whether you are interested in exploring the ocean and breathtaking landscapes of Alaska from the ship, or want to go offshore and explore Alaska, Princess Cruises offer options for everyone.


The Cruisetours from Princess gives vacationers an opportunity to experience Alaska both on land and on sea. Choose the length of your vacation and spend anywhere from three to eight days in the Alaskan wilderness, including time in Denali National Park. From there, enjoy a seven-day cruise along the serene coast of Alaska. Alternatively, simply book an Alaskan cruise. View the iced-capped mountains, the glorious glaciers, and the charming culture of the Alaskan ports.


Whichever option you choose, you will not be disappointed. Truly a once in a lifetime experience, you will return with lasting memories, making all of your friends and family jealous!
