Typical Length of Alaskan Cruises and Ports of Embarkation
The majority of cruises to Alaska are about seven to 14 days. (You’ll find some shorter cruises, like a Discovery Princess itinerary with Princess Cruises, a “sampler” of sorts. It is a four-night cruise to Alaska from Vancouver, Canada.)
Alaskan cruises stop at beautiful ports. If you want to sail to the major cities, a big ship (like Celebrity or Royal Caribbean) will stop at Alaskan cities you regularly hear about. But if you want to sail to some more remote areas of Alaska, consider a cruise on a small vessel.
If thinking of Alaska evokes images of evergreen trees, blue and white glaciers, bears, and salmon, it’s all accurate! But, in addition to this, you may see whales and moose as you sail through beautiful fjords.
