Part of the United States, yet with the distinct character of a separate country, embarking upon Alaska Cruises with Oceania Cruises is a spectacular adventure. Available on selected sailings:
A tour of this historic state is a veritable banquet of superb natural landscapes, rich history, and crystal clear waters.
Rivers overflowing with pink salmon and verdant forests populated by majestic black and brown bears stand alongside picturesque settlements, some of which were founded long before western civilisation reached the shores of North America.
Oceania Cruises visit a fantastic range of ports to explore as customers make their way through lakes, rivers and estuaries lined by countless ferns and stunning skylines in superb comfort and style. As cruisers will find to their delight, the scenery which makes Alaska Cruises such as famous staple are complemented perfectly by the friendly, culturally rich atmosphere of the state’s townships.
Ketchikan is a jewel in the crown of the landscape of the Tongass Narrows that is equals parts rugged and quaint. Set on Revillagigedo Island in South East Alaska, Ketchikan is towered over by the majestic peak of Deer Mountain and surrounded by pines are far as the eye can see.
As well as an awe-inspiring landscape, the town itself is home to just 14,000 people, and retains an historic charm in its buildings that has never diminished. Prohibition era speakeasies line the beautiful downtown stretch of Creek Street, where wooden cabins stand upon stilts near the shoreline and local bars and restaurants of varnished wood are displayed proudly upon the promenade.
Juneau, the state’s capital, is central to the Alaska Marine Highway, meaning that it is a well-known destination for cruise ships. Although thousands of cruisers visit every year, the town is so spread out that crowding rarely becomes a problem.
Two distinct sections, known locally as Downtown and The Valley are separated by amazing scenery at every turn. Must see spots include the Mendenhall Glacier, which is one of the finest natural sites in all of Alaska.
For adventurous cruisers, the West Glacier Trail leads directly to Mendenhall, weaving its way around crevasses, but an unmissable experience is taking a helicopter ride from the centre of the city, giving you an unprecedented of the magnificent ice floes and glacier walls that grace the region.
The extensive itinerary of Oceania Cruises’ Alaska Cruises means that this will not be your only chance to get up close and personal with the majestic landscape and wildlife of this beguiling, snowy state.
Heading into the port of Wrangell, cruisers will find not only a tranquil town blessed with historical sites such as King Shakes Island, but also a gateway to the Wrangell-St Elias National Park.
Spread over an area of 13 million acres, and featuring glaciers, salmon filled rivers and gorgeous woodlands. A hike amongst the idyllic northern timberlands and peaks of this glorious national park, the largest in the United States, is a fantastic way to top off an Alaskan adventure.
