"Hi Marty! When I originally started to research cruises and Travel Agents to help with the process, I was overwhelmed (Let's face it, sometimes the internet can be a good thing and sometimes it can be a bad thing). I am so happy that I can across your website. I sure didn't expect the response that I received from our family and friends when I started planning the cruise, and you were there every step of the way putting up with my cabin changes, adding new guests at the last moment, and removing guests in some cases, too!
You were amazing and I know for a fact that you are responsible for our worry-free and amazing journey. Everyone that joined us on the cruise was extremely impressed at how well the whole thing fell together with little trouble on their parts. Again I can not thank you enough, and don't forget that we will be planning another one !"

“" Our trip was excellent. The room, with the upgrades, was amazing! We saw many eagles (bald and golden), one bear, many whales, including one breach, seals, one bear, one wolf, moose and caribou, and many smaller animals.. If we travelled during salmon run, we probably would have seen more bear and eagles. The scenery is to die for, the vistas spectacular. The ship was great; service, food, etc were all great. Thanks for everything."

“"Pat and I returned from an 11 day trip to Alaska. Truly The Last Frontier. We had the pleasure of traveling with 6 of our very dear and close friends, Mike & Susie, Ron & Rachel and Craig & Diane. We saw incredible scenery, moose, mountain sheep and goats, humpback whales, dolphins, and a wolf. We examined Denali (aka Mt. McKinley ) up close and personal in a small airplane. We watched in awe the calving of the immense glaciers in Glacier Bay. The weather was absolutely beautiful."
— Walt Stout: Turn Moments into Memories
“"What can I say. We felt like we were on a National Geographic cruise. Eagles, whales, sea lions, moose, bear and caribou; we saw them all. We had the best weather imaginable too. Both days at McKinley were cloudless! We saw the whole mountain range morning, noon and night and night and night! The position of our room was great, 11th floor mid ship. We loved it."

With so many options to relax, rejuvenate and enrich yourself, it's easy to understand why some many people will have taken an Alaska cruise by the end of 2021. Our Certified Alaska Cruise Travel Experts© can help you and your special someone, ( your family too!) cruise and/or tour Alaska in style. The exhilaration of shared discovery while traveling often spills over into warmer feelings in a relationship. There's never been a better time to get away with that special someone ( or more than one ) on an Alaska Discovery Explorer Cruise©. Envision a misty woodland teeming with dark rustic colors and active wildlife. Picture a white and blue maze of glacial formations in front of a jagged mountain range. Imagine listening to the constant rush of waterfalls while taking a deep breath of crisp, cool air. Rekindle your romance and renew that relationship and come back new. Enjoy some quality time together while making memories to last a lifetime.
Imagine sailing past towering peaks of snowy white glaciers, miles wide. Only the sounds of wind and seagulls disturb the silence. Then a massive crackling and a thunderous roar echo across the pristine bay. The ice-scape rumbles and quakes as the glacier splinters and calves, sending ice and snow cascading into the sea. There's no spectacle in the world that surpasses these towering frozen masses and best displays the fierce majesty of the region.
Eagles nesting in treetops. Moose grazing through lush meadows surrounded by snow-capped mountain ranges. A breaching whale crashing down into the tranquil sea. On an Alaska vacation, it's not uncommon for you to see all of these animals and more, such as Denali National Park's Big 5: brown bears, wolves, moose, Dall sheep and caribou. You'll also have plenty of chances to enjoy the sights of humpback, beluga and orca whales, along with harbor seals, sea lions and sea otters frolicking in the water.
Take a moment to pause and gaze up. Massive, eternally snow-capped mountains rise majestically against the bright blue sky, which darkens to a majestic indigo at twilight. Wild, untamed and exquisitely unique, this astounding landscape dwarfs your wildest imagination. No other place offers such untouched beauty. Home to almost 3,000 peaks and Denali, North America's tallest mountain, Alaska's summits are a feast for your eyes. And one you'll never forget.
