Sample Excursions to Get the Most Out of Alaska
Take part on an unforgettable shore excursion and truly see what Alaska has to offer. See its unrivaled scenery and adventure among its narrow fjords, rugged mountains, and verdant forests. Glaciers loom over the sea like towers of blue ice while migrating whales can be spotted surfacing to exhale jets of spray. And scattered along the coast, remote outposts tell the hardscrabble history of Alaska: Sitka bears traces of the era when Russia ruled these shores, and Ketchikan is studded with the totem poles of Alaska’s native nations. Come see what Alaska can reveal to the adventurer in you. Explore a sampling of the excursions below. Excursions will be available to pre-book approximately 30 days prior to the cruise.
