NCL Alaska cruises are a great way to get back to nature and escape the worries and bustle of modern life. If you want a fun cruise with plenty of things to do on-board, as well as the excitement of stunning scenery to soak in and appreciate, you’ll love this selection of offers.
Alaska cruises offer you the opportunity to witness some of the most majestic landscapes available anywhere in the world, with breath-taking glaciers and mountains dominating your voyage. Add in the charming port towns and cities along the route and you’ll find Alaska to be a surprising destination packed with excitement.
Most voyages have a duration of seven nights. There is a selection of embarkation ports to choose from including Vancouver, Seattle and Seward, with the choice of sailing on the Norwegian Bliss, the Norwegian Pearl or the Norwegian Jewel.
Every Alaska cruise with Norwegian Cruise Line heads to Juneau, the state capital, with numerous exciting excursions available to be enjoyed. It serves as the gateway to the impressive Mendenhall Glacier, along with the renowned Glacier Gardens rainforest. There are many options for tours available ranging from relaxed walking tours to helicopter flights and exhilarating hikes, or you can instead opt to go whale watching.
Ketchikan is another port regularly visited by NCL cruises, with its boardwalk featuring colourful, authentic buildings. It’s a port known for fishing with the opportunity to join in and try and catch something yourself, while it’s also renowned as the home of one of the largest collection of actual Totem poles in the world. These native structures are a beautiful sight to behold. You can also see eagles in their natural habitat, and be entertained by live performances of lumberjack shows.
There is also Skagway, one of the most prominent towns from the gold rush era and home to an array of interesting sights. Tour the town to learn about the history of this fascinating period in time or head out to the gorgeous countryside with one excursion offering you the chance to cross the Yukon on an authentic, swaying suspension bridge. You also don’t want to miss a ride on a scenic railway through the White Pass, or excursions that let you try panning for your own gold.
From here it then depends on your individual itinerary as to what you’ll see and do. Some voyages include a stop at Victoria in British Columbia, and others give you time to explore the sights of Vancouver’s cityscape, a mix of natural scenery and contemporary design. Regardless of which of the NCL Alaska cruises you opt for you’ll be left stunned by some of the sights you enjoy, and the incredible service on-board.
