Visit and Explore Alaska with Cruise Holidays
Alaska is considered to be America's final frontier. It became part of the United States of America in 1867, and is geographically separate from the rest of the country. Nevertheless, Alaska is a fascinating place to visit especially for adventurous travelers due to the fact that it lies on the Arctic Circle so it is generally quite cold there and Alaska is the least densely populated state. Cruise Holidays can get you there, and most visitors travel to Alaska from May to early September. There are three basic cruise itineraries that travel to Alaska although the most popular route is through the Inside Passage. The Inside Passage route passes a number of scenic towns such as Vancouver, Haines and Juneau, and it typically ends up in Whittier or Seward. Most of the Alaska Cruises depart from Seattle, San Francisco and Vancouver. Exploring Alaska is preferably done by cruise ship too because passengers can get close to glaciers, whales and the Misty Fjords.
