Video Guide: Cruising to Alaska
Have you ever considered a cruise to Alaska? Each year from May through September several ships from all different cruise lines offer exciting itineraries in the 49th state. Cruises are such a popular way to see Alaska because they give travelers a great view and perspective on the country’s largest state and make getting around easy. Alaska is so large and so sparsely populated that travel via car takes a long time and there are few airports to fly into. Cruising really is the best way to see Alaska and the magnificent wildlife and glaciers that line its coast.
