Alaska Cruises

Alaska cruises have surged in popularity in recent years, and demand to see America’s last unspoiled frontier continues to grow. Enjoy Alaska’s picturesque surrounding as you admire snowcapped peaks, mighty glaciers, steep fjords and such wildlife as whales, black bears, brown bears, bald eagles, sea otters and seals. Your journey will take you to historic gold rush towns and quaint fishing villages where you’ll enjoy plenty of outdoor activities and immerse yourself in Alaska’s unique culture.

Alaska cruises are generally divided into three types, Inside Passage cruises, Gulf of Alaska cruises and small ship expedition-style cruises. The Inside Passage has been the traditional way to cruise Alaska, with most ships sailing round-trip from Vancouver or Seattle, through glacier country as far north as Skagway or Juneau. Gulf of Alaska cruises cover more territory as they travel from Vancouver through the Inside Passage and up to Seward/Anchorage (or the reverse). Small expedition-style ships explore isolated ports and remote waterways inaccessible to large ships, and enable you to see glaciers and wildlife up close.

The cruising season in Alaska begins in May and lasts through September, and cruises usually last between seven and 12 days. Some cruise lines also offer cruise tours, a combination of an Alaskan cruise and a land tour. On the land tour portion, you will journey inland by train or motorcoach and visit scenic destinations like Denali National Park, the Yukon Territory or the Canadian Rockies. We offer huge discounts on all of these vacations, on every cruise line in Alaska.

Tahiti and South Pacific Cruises

Tahiti, Bora Bora, Fiji and French Polynesia – just the sounds of these exotic locations conjure up images of white sand beaches and tropical sunsets.  A cruise to the islands of the South Pacific takes you to a gorgeous collection of volcanic islands and coral atolls strewn lazily across the souther ocean.  Here nature has created masterpieces of sheer cliffs, deep valleys, mountain peaks, cascading waterfalls and crystalline lagoons filled with brilliant tropical fish.

A cruise to the South Pacific is the perfect combination of leisure and adventure.  Languish on the beaches and wim and snorkel in the clean clear water.  Or take a more active approach and dive the reefs and lagoons looking for sharks.  On land the most popular adventures are hiking and four-wheel safaris.  The lush tropical foliage is filled with abasing flowers and herbs giving off a delightful fragrance of jasmine, hibiscus and vanilla.

Travelers to the South Pacific islands will find a population of warm and happy people eager to welcome and share their way of life.

After crossing the Indian Ocean the ship usually makes a few stops along the southern side of the Arabian Peninsula.  Sometimes ports along the east coast of Africa, including Madagascar, will be offered.  The ship then sails north through the Red Sea and transits the Suez Canal.  Upon exiting the ship will tour some of the finest cities in the Mediterranean and Western Europe.  The last leg is a Trans-Atlantic crossing back to New York.
