MAN September 2016 - Cruise the Coastline

Ready, Set, Cruise!

Alaska has more miles of coastline than the rest of the United States combined, so you’re never short on adventure or jaw-dropping scenery. Rich with calving tidewater glaciers, vertical mountains crashing into the sea, marine mammals and ports of call where the ocean and its bounty are ways of life, an Alaska cruise means a close-up look at what makes the state so special.

The Inside Passage, a rain-forested, island-studded southeast region, is the focus of most cruises in Alaska. A few ships cross the Gulf of Alaska and venture into Prince William Sound and other Southcentral areas. And in 2016, a ship carrying over 1000 passengers docked in Nome, on Alaska’s Bering Sea. Most cruisers will visit the Inside Passage, and you can add other regions and land options to your Alaska vacation.   READ MORE
