Explore the Wilderness on the Best Alaskan CruisePosted on 06/03/2022
Alaska is so much more than its legends and myths. Boasting lively farmer’s markets, modern art galleries, and fine dining, 21st-century Alaska blends the old and the new, and urban life with the great outdoors in towns and cities surrounded by wilderness. Journey through the wild terrain of Alaska with our Alaska cruises and discover the natural wonders that await as the rugged beauty of this pristine frontier unfolds. Set out on an unforgettable adventure where you’ll get up close and personal with 30-ton whales, zip-line through the rainforest with a visit to Mendenhall Glacier afterwards, or take flight high above the snow-capped lands and glaciers. In 2022, let any of our three award-winning ships take you there: Celebrity Solstice®, Celebrity Eclipse®, or Celebrity Millennium®, which has recently emerged from her Celebrity Revolution® modernization. And new for 2021, the revolutionized Celebrity Millennium® will sail round trip from Seattle.
And, with our 9-to-13-night Alaska Cruisetours, you can combine your Alaska cruise with an exciting land tour where you’ll stay in authentic lodges and travel remote roads and railways in deluxe motor coaches and luxurious train. A cruisetour will take you to cultured Anchorage, folksy Talkeetna, and wild Denali—a visit to these inland areas truly give you a feel for the 49th State. Experience our acclaimed Alaska cruises and take your sense of wonder to new heights.
For drama and beauty, few places in the world match the breathtaking splendor of Alaska. For one, there are glaciers—100,000—some bigger than states. Alaska’s wild coastal plains, towering snow-capped mountains, and glacier-rimmed fjords have a way of making you feel worlds away from home.
Ample land and pristine environmental conditions make Alaska well known for its abundant wildlife. While on an Alaska cruise or Cruisetour, make sure to try and spot the “Big 5” of Alaskan land mammals – bear, moose (the state animal), caribou, wolf, and Dall sheep. You’ll see plentiful bald eagles, colorful puffins, humpback whales, orcas, and reindeer in their natural habitat, as well, so make sure you bring a pair of binoculars and a good camera.
