Looking for the perfect luxury trip for your vacation? Why not consider taking the Royal Caribbean Alaska cruise tour? Perhaps you didn’t know that this famous and fabulous cruise line ventured outside the tropics, but they offer many wonderful other locales as cruise destinations, and Alaska is a terrific one.
A Royal Caribbean Alaska cruise tour features both times at sea in the beautiful west coast waters and times ashore for a truly spectacular land tour component. Tours can be as short as seven nights or as long as thirteen days and you can do the land portion before or after the sea cruise in most options.
The choices are extensive with 19 different tours to Alaska alone and six more to Whistler and to the majestic Canadian Rocky Mountains. You will see spectacular scenery, wildlife ashore and at sea, and awesome natural features such as glaciers and even a volcano.
Alaska is a bold state with exciting cities and charming natural preserves with something to meet every taste and expectation. On the ship, there is fabulous cuisine and the usual cruise activities in pure but affordable luxury. A Royal Caribbean Alaska cruise tour can cost the same or less as a much more mundane visit to an expensive city where costs can really add up. On a cruise tour, your expenses are completely predictable for lodging and most meals and activities.
Some of the points of interest on a Royal Caribbean Alaska cruise tour may include the enormous Mendenhall Glacier, the active Hubbard Glacier and the sparkling Juneau ice fields. Juneau also has much to remind you of the romance of the great gold rush.
Some of the experiences your tour may include are boating while at sea, fishing, and other water activities. Ashore, you can experience the thrill of a dogsled, hike among incredible scenery, or see the sights on a mountain bike. Your days can be active wilderness experiences while your nights are formal cocktail parties and dances. There is a little of everything.
When you pack for your wonderful Alaskan adventure, you need hiking shoes and clothing as well as more formal attire for nightlife and on board activities. Women need cocktail dresses and men need suits or tuxedos. You can even rent your formal wear right on the ship. Most days are quite casual. Remember how far north you are and bring some warm things even in the summer.
