Alaska’s vast and beautiful expanse is captivating. The opportunity to expand a tour into the interior by train or motor coach adds unique opportunity. While the ports of call are relatively small, venues for land-based events can be limited. However, the relaxed pace of an Alaskan cruise and the still, protected waters of the Inside Passage make it a good candidate for theme cruises that demand time for shipboard seminars and presentations.
The seasonality of Alaska as a cruise destination can be both an advantage and a hindrance. But in all cases, travelers are allured by the untamed nature and majestic scenery of this wild frontier.
