When planning where to go on a cruise, you would like to know whether it’s going to be an experience to remember or not. North America has many wonderful cruise spots and many passengers like to select one of them. If you’re the type who loves adventures and wildlife, then Alaska is going to be a perfect choice. When is the best time to cruise in Alaska? Why should you even go to Alaska? In this article, I’m going to give out some information to make sure that you have an extraordinary cruise to remember.
Alaska is teeming with wildlife that you can view from the ship’s deck while cruising. Would you like to see a bear diving for fish or taking a bath? Maybe a moose’s antics will appeal to you more. Then you have the abundance of sea life that includes the whales: killer, humpbacks and beluga; sea lions and weasels and a whole host of other sea creatures.
The best time to take an Alaskan cruise is between the months of May and September, and the peak season runs from July to August. If you travel in May or September the cruise ships will be a bit quieter and you can get yourself a good deal. These months may be a bit cooler and September is usually rainy. Going in May means you get to see wild flowers bloom and the trees changing color. Travelling in September means you get to experience fall in Alaska, an awesome sight and might just be lucky enough to see the Northern Lights. Of course it could rain in the other months as well and the wind chill factor is not to be ignored so travel well prepared.
A cruise trip to Alaska is really getting the best of both worlds; most cruise lines offer a cruise and stay on land package deal. With its lovely historical towns and national parks there is something for everyone to enjoy and an Alaskan cruise will be remembered as the trip of a lifetime.
Alaska is considered the last frontier and taking a cruise to this amazing destination is well worth the price. Experience the Alaskan wilderness in all its greatness, watch the awe inspiring ruggedness of her coastlines and stare in wonder at the landscape and glaciers. Breathe the pure, clean air and enjoy the wide open ocean for miles and miles. It is an all round exhilarating experience that will transport you to another world altogether.
You can pick a cruise line that goes through the Inside Passage or one that sails through the Gulf of Alaska. Anchorage, Juneau, Skagway and Sitka have many wonderful attractions and a visit to Creek Street in Ketchikan is highly recommended. This was once a red light district that is now filled with little shops and restaurants that over look the canoes and if you’re lucky enough, you can even see a Salmon leaping.
