Alaskan Cruises: Analysis and Overview

Alaskan Cruises: Analysis and Overview

Market Overview

Alaskan cruises are becoming more and more popular as they offer an experience that is difficult to beat by making accessible the remote parts of Alaska such as South East Alaska. The different ports of call in Alaskan cruises include Ketchikan, Juneau, Skagway, Sitka and visit spots of natural beauty such as Inside Passage, Tracy Arm, Hubbard Glacier, Glacier Bay, College Fjord or Sawyer Glacier. Many tourists are opting for Alaskan cruises for an adventurous cruise along with seeing beautiful sights of pristine natural beauty. Tourists are also preferring Alaskan cruises in order to experience the traditional native culture of the settlers in Alaska.

Alaskan Cruises: Drivers and Restraints  

The main advantages of an Alaskan cruise include the sheer amount of natural wonders that a tourist can witness in a short span of days and the thrill of exploring one of the remotest parts of the world by travelling in a comfortable cruise liner. However, there are certain drawbacks for taking an Alaskan cruise. One of the main restraints is the short time span of the tourist season in Alaska, which lasts only three months at best, and if the shoulder seasons are taken into account, then at best add a couple of months more. This is a short span of time and consequently, due to the remote nature of this place, the prices are high. Besides, the climate is unpredictable in Alaska, and this can hamper the Alaskan cruise experience if the weather is not conducive.

Alaskan Cruises: All You Need to Know

The peak time to visit Alaska on a cruise is from June, July till August. These months are summer time in Alaska and most of the tourists come during this time. However, if the tourists want to save some money and avoid the rush, then the shoulder season from late April through May and early to mid-September is the best. The prices are always low during such shoulder seasons and there is less rush, and maybe there is a chance to see the Northern Lights in the sky during the months of May and September. Visiting Alaska on an Alaskan cruise is the best and the most comfortable way to experience the wilderness and wildlife of this remote and yet beautiful region. The most important part is the convenience of an Alaskan cruise that offers the best of this region from the comforts of your luxury cruise liner and you can see some amazing views from the cabin of your cruise liner and marvel at the wonder of nature that Alaska is.

Apart from the wonders of Alaska that can be seen only through a ship such as Glacier Bay, Sawyer Glacier, Hubbard Glacier, and the capital of Juneau that is not accessible by land, there are also various land tours that are often accompanied in the Alaskan cruises like those of Denali National Park. Besides, for the wildlife enthusiasts, they can sight whales, dolphins and orcas that add to the natural beauty of the region.  Also, tourists have the option of travelling in a large cruise liner that can carry more than a thousand passengers at a time or they also have an option of travelling in smaller cruise ships, some of which carry only a few hundred passengers. Those who wish to get entertained throughout their Alaskan cruise with lots of options for entertainment and dining, big ships are more suitable. Big cruise liners are also suitable for family travellers that offer lots of facilities and options so that children don’t get bored on such cruises. However, if the tourists want to have a more intimate experience and see more of the wildlife and scenic beauty of Alaska, then smaller cruise ships are more suitable, as the number of tourists they carry is also less and hence they can mingle with the crowd easily.
