Alaska Cruisetour Highlights:
Denali National Park - Every turn on the Denali park road heralds some new astonishment. Watch for ptarmigan, Alaska's state bird, in the open valleys and golden eagles patrolling the higher elevations and ridge tops. With luck, you'll see grizzlies crossing braided streams, Dall sheep traversing rugged cliffs and moose foraging in upland meadows. Listen to ravens, magpies and gray jays chattering in the brush. And always present, there looms Mount McKinley, raising its massive alabaster bulk high above the surrounding plain.
Anchorage - Anchorage flaunts its mountains: The Chugach seem to rise just like that out of the backyards of city's eastern neighborhoods. So much of the rest of the scenery is water. The west of the city is bounded by the Cook Inlet, the north and south by its two major branches: the Knik Arm and Turnagain Arm. Hit Anchorage on the solstice and enjoy the restaurants, saloons, museums and galleries in round-the-clock sunshine. Extend your stay and take advantage of the many optional tours that spotlight Alaska's history, culture and outdoor lifestyle.
Fairbanks - Fairbanks is the northernmost city of consequence in the United States and cruise to Alaska with Holland America Line gives you the chance to head deep into the heart of the Great Northland. The city's location on the broad Tanana River plain between the White Mountains and the Alaska Range affords easy passage to the Arctic Circle and the Alaskan wild country.
