Description: The world of travel is a constantly changing landscape and cruising is no exception. In fact, the last couple of years have seen some particularly important developments as far as Alaskan cruising is concerned. Certainly the introduction of many spectacular new ships with an ever-greater number of amenities is among the most significant. Two other changes are reflected in the ports of embarkation and disembarkation. It was only a few years ago that almost all Alaskan-bound cruises left from Vancouver, Canada. While Vancouver is still a major gateway, you will now find just as many cruises departing from Seattle, Washington. At the other end, Anchorage used to be served by the port of Seward. Today, many Anchorage cruises dock at Whittier, which is closer to Anchorage. This change was brought about by the completion of a road tunnel from Whittier; the little town had been largely isolated before that. Finally, ports of call are being added. One cruise line has even introduced its own version of the “private island” so popular in Caribbean cruises. Here, it is Icy Strait Point, the former location of a fish cannery set in a glorious natural setting. Among the newest ports of call is Prince Rupert, British Columbia, and there could be others coming soon. So, read on in this completely revised edition and see what the cruise lines have to offer you.
