#1: The Scenery
Alaska contains a variety of different scenic cruise spots. When you go to Alaska you have a good chance of seeing a glacier (on some itineraries you could see a bunch), many different mountains, and valleys. The scenery is what draws many people to Alaska. Alaska's scenery also makes good desktop backgrounds and Facebook Cover photo pictures.
#2: The Wildlife
On Alaska cruises you have the potential to see a variety of wildlife. From your cruise ship you could see aquatic life such as dolphins or whales. You may also see many different types of birds and creatures on land.
#3: Alaska Is A Cruise Everyone Should Try: There Are Different Prices That Can Make It More Affordable
Alaska cruises are typically expensive for most people. However, if you book your cruise and airfare in a sale and book the cheapest possible stateroom category you could go for a more affordable price. Alaska is not always expensive because of these sales and different stateroom category options that are priced differently. While interior staterooms are usually cheaper, you will not have a view from your stateroom. However, you can go outside and use the public decks to get a view.
#4: Alaska Is A US State, But Most Cruises Stop In At Least One Foreign Port of Call
Alaska is the 49th state of the United States. This means United States citizens will be in their own country for most of the cruise. However, almost all Alaska cruises stop in one Canadian port or other foreign port of call, at some point in the cruise, because of certain laws and restrictions. This means proper documentation is still needed for going out of the country and identification is always needed for boarding a cruise ship. On my Carnival Miracle cruise to Alaska I overheard one guest say Alaska was a part of Canada. Please don't be the guest onboard the ship that is confused!
#5: You Never Know What You May See Or Get To Do In Alaska
While Alaska is not full of beaches and sunny activities like the Caribbean, there are a variety of other types of activities you can do in Alaska. In Alaska, many ports of call have whale watching or excursions that take visitors through different spots of nature. On these tours you could see different types of wildlife that you have never seen or heard of before. Each Alaska cruise is slightly different because the people will see different forms of wildlife. In Alaska always keep your eyes open and your camera ready because of the scenery and wildlife.
