With this Alaska Cruise Package enjoy spectacular views of glaciers and fjords in the comfort of a luxury cruise ship during a 7 or 12 night cruise.
Cruise through College Fjord, rimmed with 16 glaciers named for Ivy League colleges. Spot Alaska’s wildlife including sea lions and sea otters in Prince William Sound, harboring Alaska’s greatest concentration of tidewater glaciers. By night, take in a Broadway-style show, try your luck in the casino, check out the nightclub, or read in the library aboard the luxury Alaska Cruise ship.
Further highlights of your Alaska Cruise will be the views of Glacier Bay National Park, with blue-tinged ice cliffs towering over the sea, where you will hear the roar when they calve and crash into the water.

Go rafting through the Chilkat Bald Eagle Preserve, hosting the world’s largest concentration of bald eagles.
