Alaska is the largest state in the United States by area. It is situated in the northwest extremity of the North American continent, with Canada to the east, the Arctic Ocean to the north, and the Pacific Ocean to the west and south. If you ask anyone who cruises regularly you will undoubtedly get the response, “Alaska was the best cruise I ever took”. There are many reasons the 49th state gets that kind of reaction but mostly its for the vast wildlife and extreme views of nature you experience when you enter the Gulf of Alaska and especially Glacier Bay National Park.
Spread across an impressive 3.3-million acres, southeastern Alaska’s scenic coastal islands, narrow fjords and substantial wildlife offer an inspirational glimpse of the pristine beauty of Glacier Bay National Park. The highest concentration of tidewater glaciers on the planet can be found here. Access to this natural wonderland is extremely limited and not all cruise lines can offer this access. But as a leader in the business, Princess Cruises includes Glacier Bay on every one of their cruises.
Alaska’s Inside Passage is one of the most scenic sea-lanes in the world, home to bald eagles, whales, sea lions, otters, brown bears, mountain goats and flocks of seabirds. Plus, if you are cruising on the magnificent Star Princess you’ll visit a variety of flavorful ports full of rich history and native culture. Alaska’s beauty will make you think you’ve stepped into a painting.
This Labor Day weekend we will be escorting a LGBT group and their family and friends on the Star Princess. There are few gay cruises available in the Northwest but we would like to change that. This seven day cruise starting and ending in Seattle, WA makes for a great and friendly experience to one of the greatest treasures: the great state of Alaska.
