Cruise to Alaska – Now is the Time to Go!!

Do You Dream of Going to Alaska?

Alaska & Midnight Sun

“There are things that are done in the midnight sun by the men who moil for gold. The Arctic trails have their tales that would make your blood run cold”….Robert Service

Maybe not the “last frontier” but a land of history, mystery, adventure, and fun.

“How does one get to Alaska?”
I have been asked. Many want to go by train. But the train doesn’t go north and south from Canada to Alaska. It does run from Whittier to Fairbanks, east and west. So, what are our options?

Go to Alaska by Cruise Lines
There are a number of large ships and a few smaller ships that go from San Francisco, Seattle or Vancouver, BC. Let’s talk about each of these:

Go To Alaska from Seattle
Many ships are now doing this route round trip to the Glaciers and back in 7 nights. Because of the old Jones Act, they have to make a stop in a foreign port – usually Victoria or Prince Rupert, Canada-for a few hours the last night. These ships must go at least one direction outside the Passage. The water can be rough and you miss the most beautiful part of the trip.

From Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
7 nights to the Glaciers and back. The most ideal because you get the inside passage. This route has very narrow channels with majestic mountains. You just watch for hours as the ship winds it’s way past small villages, sometimes dolphins and often whales.

From Vancouver, BC to Seward or Whittier, Alaska or reverse for 7 nights and fly one way. This way you get more glaciers, plus you can add on a land tour to Denali Park or even on up to Fairbanks before or after the cruise. This is the most ideal especially if you will only go once in your lifetime, which is doubtful. Once you see this magnificent place, you will want to go back.

Then there are some small ship companies doing cruises out of Juneau, Alaska. This is a wonderful way to get up close with nature. No big ship amenities, no dress codes. Only amazing sites along the way.

TEN REASONS TO BOOK WITH A TRAVEL AGENT!

1. Travel agents have been proven in studies to consistently provide their clients with the best value-for-money in their travel spending.

2. Only travel agencies in BC pay into the provincial BC Travel Assurance Fund, so your funds are protected only when you book your travel arrangements with a BC registered travel agency.

3. Travel agents provide full service and professional advice. We have been to, or had training on the destinations we sell.

4. Travel agents can help out in a case of an emergency, or disruption of your travel arrangements. A website somewhere in the USA is not going to help. “Without a travel agent, you’re on your own”

5. Most airfares can be booked and held by travel agents for at least a day, sometimes weeks, until payment and ticketing required. With us you can hold seats, confirm or modify your plans, then pay, vs. instant purchase with an online company such as Escapes.ca

6. Travel agents excel at complex itineraries, as well as, expert and detailed land arrangements.

7. Travel Agents can access charter flights, package vacations, tours, etc that are not bookable on the internet.

8. Travel agents handle all your supplemental arrangements, such as travel insurance, advise on passports and visas, foreign entry requirements, assigning seats, requesting special meals, etc

9. Travel Agents strive to provide their clients unbiased advice, and a full range of options, whereas most large, multinational travel websites have corporate backers biasing their options.

10. Doing business with your local travel agent supports the BC economy, as at least a small portion of your travel dollars stay local, vs. large, corporate travel websites based in Eastern Canada or USA.
